Q: Will there be any cost to me?
A. No. You will not be burdened with any towing expense for the donation of your vehicle.

A. Yes. Donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. Individual tax situations vary so please check with a tax professional to determine what if any tax benefit you may receive.
Q. What are the IRS vehicle donation tax deduction guidelines?
A. The new IRS laws effective 01/01/2005 allows you, the taxpayer, to claim a tax deduction of:
(a) the value of your vehicle up to $500 or
(b) if we sell the vehicle for more than $500 we will mail you a completed IRS tax form 1098-C with that value for your tax purposes.
For additional information, the IRS provides a Donor's Guide to Car Donations which sets forth the manner in which the IRS requires you to determine the value of your donated property. For more details, please visit IRS website and review publication 4303 - A Donor's Guide to Car Donations & also consult with a tax advisor.
