My car is not drivable, am I still able to donate it?

Yes, we can still accept it for donation! It can just be towed from wherever you have it located. However, if the condition and tow cost will result in more than the car’s value, National Charity Services reserves the right to decline the donation.

What paperwork do I need to donate my car?

In most cases, you need the generic information about the car (make, model, VIN, etc) as well as the title. If you do not have the title, you may be able to get a replacement title or fill out some additional paperwork. Our partner organization, National Charity Services, handles the actual picking up of the car and selling it, will be able to answer any in-depth questions you may have about the donation process.

Is my donation tax deductible?

Yes! Homes For Our Troops is classified with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. Because individual tax situations vary, please check with a tax professional to determine what, if any, tax benefit you may receive from your donation.

Will I receive any tax information when I donate my car?

Yes, our partner organization (National Charity Services) will provide you with the necessary tax letter regarding your donation. You will receive an initial letter when the car is towed. You will also receive an official Thank You letter for your vehicle donation – to be used for tax purposes. Only if your vehicle sells for over $500, do you receive the IRS form 1098c for you to claim the selling price as your tax deduction.
This process can sometimes take a few weeks or even a few months.

I donated my car X months/weeks ago and I still have not received a tax letter?

Thank you so much for your donation. We are sorry to hear you have not received the necessary paperwork. Our partner organization (National Charity Services) is responsible for providing you with the necessary tax paperwork regarding your donation. They were the ones you initially worked with to set up the donation and towing. You should have received an initial letter when the car is towed, which can be used for tax purposes until the car is officially sold at auction. The selling process can take a little while, which might be why you have not yet received a follow-up letter. National Charity Services will be happy to re-send you the initial letter and let you know where your car is in the selling process. Please call 866-829-2918.
