Dear PoP – Where Should I Donate My Car?


“Dear PoP,

I recently moved into the city and brought my car with me. I find that I am using the car less and less. The most I drive the car is to move it from one side of the street to another for street cleaning. So I decided to get rid of the car. Should I donate this car? I never have donated a car so I decided to look into it with the end of the year coming. According to IRS laws you can donate only what the car is sold for at auction, unless the charity keeps the car, in which you can deduct what they claim its worth. So my question to your PoP readers is which charity will give me the best donation.”

I suppose it depends on how much your car is worth. Or if you want to donate it for charitable reasons. If you want to donate it for charitable reasons I’d imagine that the tax write off would be the same at any charity. Do you guys have any recommendations on which charity to donate to?
