If it has a title, we’ll take it! Free towing! Tax-deductible!
Vehicle donations made to National Capital Area Council (NCAC) are tax deductible. Please consult with your tax professional on how to maximize your tax deduction since every car donation and tax situation is unique. (In general, the IRS limits the tax deduction to the gross proceeds from the sale of the car, truck or other vehicle. Charitable contributions must be itemized on Schedule A of Form 1040 to qualify. If the gross proceeds exceed $500, Form 1098C “Contributions of Motor Vehicles, Boats, and Airplanes” and Form 8283 "Non Cash Charitable Contributions" must also be completed and attached. Forms 1098C and 8283 are required to be provided to the donor within 30 days of the sale of the vehicle.)
To learn about your responsibilities as a donor prior to making a vehicle donation,
please consult the "Donors Guide to Vehicle Donations" found in IRS Publication 4303.
