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; they will gratefully accept it no matter what shape it is in, how old it is or if it does not run. They 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 striped of any parts, that the tires on your car 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, too!

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. They will also provide you with all the forms you will need to file with your taxes so you can claim your valuable tax deduction.

The Cost to Fix My Car is Just Too Damn High!

We have all probably been there; you bring your car in to the shop for what you think is a minor repair, then the mechanic comes to you and says the car needs expensive work.  Your reaction is to scream, “The cost is just too damn high”? Now what do you do? Well, you have a few choices.

You can pay the piper and get your car fixed. The question, of course is;”Is it worth it?” If the answer is; no or probably not, then there are some other things you can do with your car. You can trade it in for a new or better used car. Unfortunately, you may not get a particularly good trade in amount for the car if it needs significant repairs. You will have the same problem if you try to sell your car privately by advertising it the paper or online. It is extremely difficult to get a decent price for a car that needs repair. Even if your car is drivable, you have a legal obligation to tell the prospective buyer of any problems it has. If your car is really in bad condition, you can probably get a few dollars for it from a local junk yard.

If you itemize on your federal income tax return, you will get at least a $500 tax deduction if you donate your car to a charity. Sadly, many charities will not let you donate car if it does not run, is in poor shape or is over 10 years old. Fortunately, one charity; Cars4Charities does not care how old your car is, if it runs or what condition your car is in; they will proudly accept it as it is. Their simple requirements are that you have a title that is free of liens for your car, that the car is not stripped of any of its parts, that the tires are inflated and that the car is parked in a place where it can easily be towed.

Cars4Charities is recognized by the IRS as a 501 (c) (3) charity. Therefore, you be assured that they will handle your car donation properly and professionally. In return for your charitable contribution, you will get you a tax deduction of $500 or what Cars4Charities sells your car donation for, whatever amount is greater. They will also provide you with the forms you will need to submit with you taxes so that you can claim your valuable tax deduction.

Cars4Charities also allows you to donate car completely online at any time through their website, http://www.cars4charities.org/. This option greatly lowers their expenses enabling them to give more money to the charity you choose from their list of participating charities. It is also far better for our environment because it reduces the use of paper and other consumables.  If your car is in poor condition, Cars4Charities will make sure it is recycled properly.

Vote Yourself a Tax Deduction

Often, Election Day means going into the booth and vote for a candidate you feel may be the lesser of two evils.  If you have a car you do not need, you can vote yourself a tax deduction of at least $500 on your itemized federal tax return if you donate car to charity. You do not even have to pull a lever or mark a spot. It is already there for you.

If your car is in good condition, most charities will gladly take it. What they do with it is another story. Some charities will use the car or give it to a needy person. The majority of charities sell all donated cars. Many of those send all car donations to auction. If the price of the car does not exceed the auction fees, the charity will have to pay the difference. In that case, the charity will lose money on the car donation

Unfortunately, there are many charities that will only accept your car for donation if it runs, is in decent condition and is less than ten years old. Fortunately, one car donation charity will gratefully take your car no matter how old it is or whether it runs or not. That charity is Cars4Charities. They do not discriminate. They only ask that you have a title for your car or have some proof that you are the owner, have not taken parts out of it, and have it in a place where a tow truck can easily get to it.

Cars4Charities will also provide you with the forms you will need to file with your taxes in order to claim your valuable tax deduction.

Don’t Get Stranded With Nothing but Spam and Pop-Tarts

It will not be long before the cold winds of winter will start to blow. Before they do; you’ll want to get your car “winter ready”. Otherwise, you might end up like those unfortunate travelers on that cruise ship; stranded in the middle of nowhere with nothing but Spam and Pop-Tarts

First, you need to check your car battery. Extreme cold weather will rob it of much of its cranking power. If it is more than a few years old, you may need to replace it. Next, check the antifreeze in your radiator. You can buy an inexpensive tester at your local auto parts store. The tester will tell you if you have the correct amount of antifreeze. Of course, if your system has not been flushed in awhile, now is a good time to do that. Then, check your tires. If your tires are worn or you have high performance tires, you should replace them with snow tires. Also, make sure you maintain the proper amount of air in your tires. Cold weather will make the air in your tires contract resulting in them being soft if you don’t keep checking them.

Now is also a good time to change the oil in your car. Many car makers recommend using a thinner motor oil like 5W-30 during the winter months because it circulates better at colder temperatures and helps to reduce engine wear.  In addition, you should check your belts and hoses along with your brakes, heater, headlights and brakes lights, etc. to make sure all are in working order.

Once you have gotten your car ready for the cold, snow, ice and wind that winter brings, it’s time to stock it with all the items you will need to help you get through them. Those items include an ice scraper, a snow brush and small snow shovel, bag of sand or cat litter, road flares, jumper cables, blanket, etc.

If you don’t have confidence that your car will get you safely through the winter, now is the time to do something about it. You can spend a lot of money repairing your car, but that might not raise your level of confidence. You can attempt to sell your car. That might be difficult since the chances are good that if you don’t think it will survive the winter neither will a prospective buyer. You can trade it in towards a new or newer car. Unfortunately, if it is not in good condition, you probably won’t get much for it. You can avoid all that aggravation by logging onto http://www.cars4charities.org/ and donating your car to charity.

Cars4Charities will gladly accept your car in virtually any condition as long as you have a title, have not stripped parts off of it and have it parked where a tow truck can easily get to it. When you donate your car to charity, you get a tax deduction of the greater of $500 or the amount your car donation is sold for. No muss, no fuss! If you prefer to speak to someone in person, just call 866.448.3487 and they will be happy to give you the donate car details.

Turn Your Car into Cash

If you own a car that you do not need, you will save some money on your taxes and help a very worthwhile cause when you donate your car to charity.  When you donate car, you get a tax deduction that is based on two things; the fair market value of your car and what the charity does with your car donation. If the charity uses your car, gives it to a deserving person or sells it to them at a greatly reduced price, you can claim the fair market value of the car as long as it is not more than what you paid for it. The fair market value is the amount you could sell your car for on the day you donate car and in the condition it was in on that day. If the charity sells your car donation, which is what most of them do, you can claim the larger of $500 or the amount it is sold for.

Many charities only accept vehicles that run, are in decent condition and are less than 10 years old. Cars4Charities does not have those restrictions; they will happily take your car in any condition.  They just ask that you provide a title for the vehicle, have not taken parts off of it, have the tires inflated, and park it in a place where the tow truck can easily get to it.
