Vehicle donations made to Easter Seals Central Texas are tax
deductible. Our organization has been designated by the IRS as a 501c
(3) charity. The best practice is to consult with a tax professional on
how to maximize your tax deduction since every car donation and tax
situation is unique. In general, the IRS limits the tax deduction to the
gross proceeds from the sale of the car, truck, or other vehicle.
Charitable contributions must be itemized on Schedule A of Form 1040 to
qualify. If the gross proceeds exceed $500, Form 1098C “Contributions of
Motor Vehicles, Boats, and Airplanes” and Form 8283 "Non cash Charitable Contributions",
must also be completed and attached. Forms 1098C and 8283 are required
to be provided to the donor within 30 days of the sale of the vehicle.
To learn more on what the donors’ responsibilities are prior to making a car donation, please consult the "Donors Guide to Vehicle Donations" found in IRS Publication 4303. The file may be read with Adobe Reader.

will handle the rest. Our friendly operators are glad to answer any
questions you may have. They will arrange a convenient time for free
auto towing, and mail your required tax form documentation within four
to six weeks.
