If your vehicle sells for less than $500, you may deduct no more than $500. If your vehicle sells for more than $500, you will need to include the IRS form 1098C with your tax returns.
Vehicles for charity will supply this documentation after your vehicle sells. We recommend you consult your tax advisor with questions about your deduction.
