Donate car; get tax break

To the editor:

If you have an extra car and are looking for a way to reduce your income taxes, here is one recommendation. You will get a tax deduction of $500 or more when you donate your car to charity.

Sadly, many charities will only let you donate car that is running, is in decent shape or is less than 10 years old.

Cars4Charities does not care what condition your car is in. We only require that you have a title free of liens for your vehicle or some other proof that you are the owner; that your car is not stripped of any parts; that the tires are not flat, and that it is parked in a place where a tow truck can easily get to it. Cars4Charities will pick up your car donation fast and free.

In return for your charitable contribution, you will receive a tax deduction of $500 or what Cars4Charities is able to sell your car donation for, whichever amount is greater. Cars4Charities lets you donate a car at your leisure online through the website, cars4charities.org. You can donate your car to any of hundreds of deserving charities, including many food banks, homeless shelters, hospices, etc.
