The IRS allows you to take a charitable tax deduction on your federal income tax form equal to the amount the vehicle sells for at auction unless it sells for less than $500. If your vehicle sells for less than $500 you may deduct no more than $500. If your vehicle sells for more than $500, we will need to get additional information from you so that we can send you the IRS form 1098C. We recommend you consult your tax advisor with questions about your deduction.
