By making a vehicle donation, you will be supporting pets in need right here in Calaveras County. The money from the sale of your vehicle will go towards funding the medical care, food, and other costs related to the animals in our care, as well as our many programs and services that benefit pets and people in need in our community.
After you donate your car to us, you can claim a tax write-off for your charitable contribution to the Calaveras Humane Society, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) animal welfare organization.
If you are interested in donating a vehicle, please review the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) guidelines for tax deduction allowances. The Calaveras Humane Society partners with a wholesaler (CARS: Charitable Adult Rides & Services) to sell donated vehicles, so the amount of your donation may not be the same as the private party sale value of your vehicle.
In exchange for your vehicle and signed title, CARS will provide you with a tax receipt. If your car is sold for more than $500, in addition to the tax receipt, CARS will supply you with an IRS 1098-C form.
The Calaveras Humane Society encourages you to speak with your tax adviser concerning your charitable vehicle donation. Your tax preparer can provide you with detailed advice and instructions about itemizing your deductions on your taxes to receive a tax break for your gift to the animals. A professional can also advise you about particular IRS forms that you may need to fill out and submit with your taxes.
