Donate Car for Tax Credit

Donate Car for Tax Credit

donate car for tax credit

You probably heard it more than a dozen times from tv or radio commercials or read it from newspapers or magazines ads, Donate Car for Tax Credit but is it really that easy? Yes it’s true that you can get tax credit, but the big question is how much tax deduction can you get? Some people tend to get smaller than what they expected. Donating your car to charity can benefit you with a significant amount of tax savings if you will do proper planning and you’ll have all the proper documentations.

How to Donate Car for Tax Credit

1. Make sure that you’re donating to a reputable charity, an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) organization.

2. According to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), your deduction depends on how the charity uses your donation. If they sell your car (truck, boat, RV, or other vehicle), then your deduction will be the sales price. If they use it in other ways then you can use the car’s fair market value.

3. What is the car’s fair market value? The IRS suggests that you use a reputable used-car price guide such as the recent copy of the Kelley Blue Book to calculate your car’s fair market value. The private party prices are based on a vehicle’s make, model and overall condition.

4. Take note that there’s also a donate a car for tax credit rule, all taxpayer has a $500 threshold on vehicular gift. So even if the charity sells your car sells for $500 or less, still you can deduct $500 or your car’s fair market value, whichever is less.

5. Make sure that you keep a thorough list of paper trail. Most charities will report the sales price of your car to you on a form or a receipt, so make sure to have those documents.

6. Make sure to report the amount of your deduction. File all the forms necessary. If your deduction is greater than $5,000, you may also need a written appraisal as documentation.

Donate Used Cars: Where to Donate My Car

Donate Used Cars – Where to Donate My Car

Where to Donate My Car

Donate Used Cars: Where to Donate My Car

Do you have a used car that you don’t need anymore? You may want to consider donating your used vehicle to charity. By donating you avoid the hassles associated with selling it, avoid the potential of repair costs, help a worthy cause and score a tax deduction at the same time.

Donate car for tax credit – You can use the price the charity got for your car in a sale as the amount of your deduction, this is true in case they sold it in auctions. If in case the charity sells the car at a discount to a needy individual or keeps the car for its own use, then you can claim a deduction for its fair market value.

Where to Donate My Car? There are a lot of charities where you can donate used cars and they will even pick it up for you, but before you do that one important tip to consider is to make sure that you’re donating directly to charities. Some middlemen or organizations will keep some percent of the value of your car for themselves and will just donate a portion to charity. To avoid this make sure to contact the charity your interested in directly and that charity is non-profit.

Another important thing to consider before you donate used cars is to make sure that the charity is an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) organization. The IRS allows vehicle donors to receive the full market value on their vehicle as a full tax deduction, so make sure that you keep a thorough list of paper trail. Some important documents to keep are IRS Form 8283 for your tax return, outside appraisal if necessary, proof of the donation and a copy of the title change.

Water Bottle Craft: Cars

Water Bottle Craft: Cars

Water Bottle Craft: Cars

Today I am going to show you how to make a Water Bottle Craft: Cars edition! This would be a perfect gift for that special boy in your life! What little boy wouldn’t love checking out the bottle and seeing cool cars stuff!?

Water Bottle Craft Instructions:

  1. Drink some water or another beverage in a plastic container
  2. Wash it out and remove the label
  3. Find items that will fit in your bottle based on your theme (In this theme, anything you think a boy would love to play with!)
  4. Place items in the bottle
  5. Close the bottle by screwing on the cap
  6. Then you will need to create a label
  7. Secure the label with duck tape
  8. Head to the post office
  9. Mail your gift

Water Bottle Craft Content:

Cars stickers, Cars coloring pages, crayons, and a Hot wheels car! I grabbed a Lightening McQueen toddler cup at the dollar store to place all the items in.

This would make a great gift to send to a little boy or to present at a birthday party. I also thought that this would be a great gift to give children as goodie bags at a party. We know that we spend a ton on those and the child never uses the items inside. These items inside are fun and the “bag” is functional. You can even write each party goers name on the bottle.This is an excellent idea for a restaurant since a lot of times restaurants fail to have kid safe cups.You can find more waterbottle craft ideas like this Water Bottle Craft: Cars

This is a great, easy little gift for a boy, and cost around $ 4 to make!
