UPDATE: 2005 Car Donation Regulations

The U.S. Department of Treasury has revised the tax laws regarding the donation of automobiles and the deductions that can be claimed. The result is: You may be able to claim more by donating your car to Wheels of Success than other non-profit organizations.

Depending on the condition of your automobile Wheels of Success may be able to offer it to a family in need of reliable transportation. As a result you would be able to claim fair market value. If another non-profit organization simply sells your car, you would only be able to claim to amount it was sold for.

Please check with your accountant about the actual amount allowed for deduction.

With Wheels of Success its a Win-Win! Contact us for more details.
