The Internal Revenue Service and the State view car donations to charities as COMPLETELY TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
This implies that the price at which your car is sold will qualify as a tax deduction. Within 30 to 50 days of the sale of your vehicle, the IRS Form 1098-C will be sent to you and the charity, making the transaction clear to all parties. We also perform all of the work. There isn’t any dealing with the paperwork to transfer the title or waiting in line at the DMV.
There is an easy solution. When you choose to donate a car to charity, you give money to any 501(c)(3) organization of your choice. Your car donation will help, whether you’re passionate about donating supplies to your neighborhood school, helping kids and families cope with illness and cancer, or making sure families don’t go to bed hungry.
Through organizations like the Western Los Angeles County Council, the Boy Scouts of America, and the Girl Scouts of Orange County, your donation car can even encourage exciting hobbies and exploration for non-profits in your neighborhood.

Collecting the vehicle’s cleared Certificate of Title and Registration is the first step in the city car donation process.
Don’t worry if you’ve lost your title or registration. The nonprofit organization can assist. Please locate the VIN of your vehicle so that we can jointly decide which additional paperwork you will need to fill out when picking up your vehicle.
Tell the charity where to pick up the car. Within two to three business days, a local towing agent will get in touch with you to arrange a pick-up time that works best for you.
Call the organization or submit an online donation form. Their helpful donation coordinators will gather information about your car, and then they will decide on the most practical time, day, and place for the pickup. They will then email you with step-by-step instructions on how to get ready for the pick-up.
Our tow truck driver will give you a call an hour before they arrive to give you time to gather paperwork and get your car ready for towing. Make sure your title is signed and free of any liens when you pick it up. The tow truck driver will receive the title and registration from you.
You will receive an email with access to your donor console after submitting the donation form. You can track your donation, upload necessary paperwork, and get tax and title information from the donor console. A tax receipt will be emailed to you after the sale of your vehicle.
