Donating a Car to Charity: Tax Information
Upon pick-up of the vehicle, you receive a receipt that may be used to claim your charitable deduction on that year’s taxes. If your vehicle sells for over $500, you will be notified of the sale. In that case, you will receive appropriate tax documents in the mail containing the actual gross sale price of the vehicle. All receipts and paperwork as well as scheduling pickup is done by Millis Tow 508-481-1919 or MillisTow@comcast.net.
