Tax Benefits


Can I claim my car donation as a tax deduction?

Yes. MERS/Goodwill is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity organization. Contributions, including car donations, may be claimed as deductions on your federal tax return if you itemize on Schedule A of Form 1040.

How much can I deduct?

• Once Goodwill sells your car, the selling price becomes the amount of your donation.

• If your car sells for more than $500, you may deduct the full selling price.

What documentation will I receive for my tax return?

• After the car has been sold, you will receive a receipt providing the vehicle sale information. This receipt may be used for tax deduction purposes; additional tax documents, will be provided when required by IRS regulations as a result of the sale value of the car.

Where can I get more information?
