How can donating a vehicle to charity in Pacific Palisades help me afford a new one?

YOU'RE SMART (that's why your accountant loves you!) because you know The VALUE OF YOUR OLD CAR can help Car donation in Pacific Palisades is fast!you get into a newer car. Cars2Charities can do just that - get a greater value from your old car than any other car donation program. As you know, car donations are considered by the Internal Revenue Service and the State of California to be COMPLETELY TAX DEDUCTIBLE. This means that the price for which your car is sold or the value of the vehicle, whichever is greater, can be deducted from the income on which you owe taxes at the end of the year. This is a great way to gain “free money" on your income tax return, because you pay nothing to donate your car and yet you get a credit for the value of the vehicle.

Got questions? We have answers. The IRS guidelines for tax deduction is also a great resource. Cars2Charities provides you and your non-profit with IRS Form 1098 within 30 days of the sale of your vehicle. Both parties receive the same form, ensuring 100% transparency about what your donated car, truck, recreational vehicle (RV), golf cart, boat, or motorcycle sold for. car 1376248 640

You may think that it would be better to sell your car and donate the money to charity, but this could actually be more expensive. The state will charge you fees to transfer the car's title and for other expenses associated with the sale - especially if your registration is not current. In all, these fees and taxes can add up to hundreds of dollars that will not go to the charity of your choice. 

If you donate your car in Pacific Palisades through Cars2Charities, on the other hand, you avoid all the fees and taxes associated with a sale. Since the non-profit organization you choose is operating under a 501(c)(3) status, it pays no taxes for your donation. Everyone saves money, giving your favorite charity more dollars to spend on important activities. Furthermore, Cars2Charities maximizes the value of your donation by selling vehicles privately to individual buyers who are willing to pay more than whole-sale buyers would at an auction house. Cars2Charities almost never sends a vehicle to auction, because our value-adding process combined with retail-marketing typically results in 25-50% more in selling price. 90% of vehicles donated to non-profits through Cars2Charities are sold to retail buyers, who are highly satisfied with the work we invest -- and they routinely give us rave online reviews

CPAs know the value of vehicle donation too, and appreciate the benefits it can provide for donors like you at tax-time.

Who benefits from my donation?

EVERYONE - it's a Win-Win-Win!

You get the FULL VALUE of the car to write off of your taxes. Someone drives away in a new car (new to them, anyway!). And the charity you hand-picked gets ALL the money (minus what they reimburse to Cars2Charities for the cost of towing, out-of-pocket expenses to improve your vehicle, and an industry-standard service fee).

Think about the cars you've sold that weren't in the best condition. Cars2Charities will make the appropriate repairs so your vehicle can have a whole new life with another family. The vehicle you loved and took care of for years doesn't have to go to the car parts lot, where cars and trucks go to die. So, even the car buyer gets to win.

Meanwhile, you're improving your bottom line AND opening up room in the garage!
