Vehicle Donation Tax Deduction

As of January 1, 2005, the maximum tax deduction you can receive without needing notification of the Gross Selling Price (GSP) of the vehicle is $500. If the vehicle sells for more than $500 and you itemize on your taxes, then you may claim the GSP as the deduction. NKFH will provide notification of the tax deduction within 30 days of the sale. NKFH cannot guarantee any selling price for any vehicle. It may take up to 60 days or longer to sell your vehicle and for you to receive notification of your tax deduction.

*Every donor will receive a sale notification. Even if the selling price is less than $500, you may still take the maximum tax deduction of $500.
