Vehicle donations made to Arlington Free Clinic are tax deductible. AFC is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization. The best practice is to consult with a tax professional on how to maximize your  tax deduction since every car donation and tax situation is unique. In general, the IRS limits the tax deduction to the gross proceeds from the sale of the car, truck or other vehicle. Charitable contributions must be itemized on Schedule A of Form 1040 to qualify. If the gross proceeds exceed $500, Form 1098C “Contributions of Motor Vehicles, Boats, and Airplanes” and Form 8283 “Non Cash Charitable Contributions” must also be completed and attached. Forms 1098C and 8283 are required to be provided to the donor within 30 days of the sale of the vehicle.

To learn more on what the donors’ responsibilities are prior to making a car donation, please consult the “Donors Guide to Vehicle Donations” found in IRS Publication 4303. The file may be read with Adobe Reader.

Simply call our toll free number at 1-855-527-2AFC (1-855-527-2232) with the year, make and model of the vehicle, the general condition, the vehicle identification number, and with title and lien in hand and we will handle the rest. Our friendly operators are glad to answer any questions you may have. They will arrange a convenient time for free auto towing, and mail your required tax form documentation within four to six weeks.
