Have you been more thoughtful of the environment lately, considering downsizing? Or is your family growing so you plan to upgrade from a Fiat to a Navigator?
Whatever your situation, a car donation in Aurora enables you to do that. You also get to benefit your favorite charity and get a tax write-off at the same time!
We all end up with a car we need to get rid of at some point in time. And when we get to the point where we’re deciding which route to go, many people choose a vehicle trade-in at the dealer.
The problem is, you lose a lot of money when you trade it in. You typically get about 30-40% of your vehicle’s actual value that way. By contrast, when you donate a car to charity you can write off 100% of its value.
If you like to be as green as possible (perhaps you’re looking at hybrids), taking care of Mother Earth certainly isn’t the only reason to donate a car, but it is a great way to recycle. When you consider your own lifestyle – what you drive, eat, wear, etc. – do you feel like it’s time for a hybrid or an electric car? There are so many EV Charging Stations now.
Double down on the positive progress you can make with a vehicle donation in Aurora through Cars2Charities. We can make sure your car gets a new owner while we process your tax write-off.

We have great news for you. After contacting us, you don’t need to take your donation car to a drop-off point or parking lot. In fact, if you’ve spent a lot of time dropping it off at Autoworks recently, your agony is over, because we send one of our towing professionals to wherever your car is and pick it up. You just hand over the keys!
You’re relieved of duty, so to speak, because we also take care of all the paperwork. There’s no enduring the DMV – all you have to do is choose a charity – any 501 (c)(3) – to receive proceeds from the sale of your donation vehicle.
And there’s another benefit to a vehicle donation in Aurora through Cars2Charities: Our technicians assess your auto donation to see if there are any necessary upgrades or repairs that would maximize your vehicle’s value. That means your charity gets a greater benefit, while you get a bigger tax break.
Bioscience or aerospace – whatever industry you work in, you want the best possible outcome with the IRS.
Everyone has budgetary concerns, and when you send your paperwork to the CPA – or do it yourself on Turbo Tax – there are some universal advantages. Charitable contributions are tax deductible, and that includes cash gifts or car donations.
It’s a perfect marriage when you have a car you no longer need and you’re seeking tax advantages. The value of your vehicle can benefit a cause you care about at the same time. It’s a win-win!
A report by the United States General Accounting Office to the U.S. Senate’s Committee on Finance said that tax deductions for donated vehicles were claimed on more than 700,000 tax returns, which lowered taxpayers’ income tax liability by approximately $654 million.
Most people drive their cars for about 10 years, so if you’ve determined your decade is up (or if you’ve been thinking about that new SUV or want to check out the affordable Tesla coming out), consider donating a car in Aurora and reap the tax break too.
Remember those necessary alterations we make to donation cars? Those typically raise the selling price by approximately 25-50% which gets you a bigger write-off. We’re happy to walk you through the process and give you more information about the advantages of our program.
And good news – especially in this day and age – we’re transparent and we go by the book. After the sale of your car, we report the final price to you and your charity within the 30-day period. You both receive IRS Form 1098-C, so you get the tax deduction for the total.
