The expression; no pain, no gain is not true for car donation. Donating a car is incredibly painless if you do know how to do it properly. If you have an extra car, you will get a very valuable tax deduction when you donate your car to charity.
The amount of your tax deduction will be determined by the fair market value of your car and what the charity does with it. If the charity sells your car donation, you can claim $500 or the amount they sell your car for whichever amount is more. If the charity keeps you car, gives it to a needy person or sells it to someone for much less that its value, you can claim the fair market value up to the amount you paid for the car. You should consult with your tax advisor or the IRS for complete details.
