What's the best car donation tax deduction in Palo Alto?

You probably know that if you donate a car, the tax deduction in Palo Alto is similar to a sale through CarMax or a trade-in from a dealer. The advantage of donating a car, truck, or if you donate an SUV in Palo Alto through Cars2Charities, however, is the support you can offer your favorite cause. Also, it's likely to please your accountant when it comes to your bottom line. 

Our unique process offers you the highest benefit possible. Not only do we come to you and tow away your vehicle, our skilled repair staff makes necessary selective repairs, which increases its likely sale value. We sell vehicle donations in Palo Alto privately, rather than through auction, when possible. Cars are generally sold for the value of “as is" condition at auction, because those who purchase them usually plan to resell them.

Our process typically adds 25-50% more value to each car, truck or RV donation in Palo Alto. Cars2Charities Tow Truck

Where the value on your car through another auto donation program may total $4,000 “as is," it is likely to sell for $5,000 to $6,000 through our program. You will receive the papers for tax purposes and your charity will receive a check within 30 days of the sale.

You can read some of our donors' stories to see how satisfied they've been with Cars2Charities. 

You can also be confident that we follow the IRS guidelines for your tax deduction. Both you and your non-profit will receive IRS Form 1098 within 30 days of the sale of your vehicle, showing the sale value to ensure 100% transparency, so both you and the charity of your choice know what your vehicle is sold for.
