Why Donate Your Vehicle Series: Help with the Paperwork

Can You Dispose of Your Car Without Dealing with Paperwork? Yes, Absolutely!

Have you been thinking of selling your old car but you’re not keen on the idea of drowning yourself in paperwork? Here’s the solution: Donate it to charity!

Besides saving you from the headaches and stress of selling, giving away your unwanted automobile to a nonprofit means you don’t have to worry about paperwork. Charities have donation specialists who will gladly do this job for you.


Your Chosen Nonprofit Has Your Back!

One of the main reasons why people prefer donating their old cars rather than selling them is because charities that accept car donations typically have streamlined processes in place to handle all the necessary paperwork.

It’s a win-win situation for all: You get to dispose of a beater without working up a sweat while the nonprofit gets a donation that will help fund its programs and services.

So, what does the process involve? For starters, the charity will transfer vehicle ownership from you to them by completing all the required forms to transfer the title. You only need to sign over the title to the charity, which will then submit the transfer paperwork to the DMV. In case you lost your title, the charity may assign a title specialist to help you obtain a duplicate copy.

After the charity takes away your vehicle, you’ll receive a towing receipt that you can use to cancel your vehicle’s DMV registration, thus releasing you from any liability on your car from that point onward. In other words, you’ll no longer be held responsible for anything that happens to it.

Finally, the charity will send you the tax-deductible sales receipt of your car within 30 days after its auction sale. You can use this to claim your tax deduction. The charity will submit the required documentation to the IRS, including Form 1098-C. This form will provide the IRS with all the information it needs about your vehicle, including its fair market value.

So, if you’re ready to donate your vehicle to a nonprofit of your choice, all you need to do is sign a few forms and provide some basic information about yourself and your vehicle. The charity will handle the rest. It’s a stress-free way to get rid of your old car while doing an exemplary act of charity.

Your auto donation will be used to help the indigent children in your area who badly need medical assistance. Our team will sell it through an auction and use the proceeds to support the pediatric healthcare programs of our IRS-certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit partners.

These charities use the funding we give them to provide their young beneficiaries with comprehensive medical assistance including free treatments and therapies, emotional support, relief of pain and trauma during hospital confinement, and other vital healthcare services. They also use the money to promote child health care, advocacy, research, and education.

Expect the 100% tax-deductible sales receipt of your car to arrive in your mailbox within 30 days after its auction sale. This receipt will entitle you to claim the maximum tax deduction in the next tax season.

Additionally, you will be issued with a towing receipt on the day we pick up your vehicle. You’ll need this document to cancel your auto insurance as well as your DMV registration.

We accept pretty much all types of vehicles, including those that are no longer in good condition. For a comprehensive list of the vehicles that qualify for our donation program, head over to this page.
