When you donate your vehicle to your favorite charity, you will get an initial tow receipt. Six to eight weeks later, you will receive a thank you letter. If your car sold for over $500 you will be asked to call in with your social security number so that we can send you IRS tax form 1098 C, as you will be entitled to claim the full value for which the vehicle sold. If the vehicle sells for under $500 you can use the initial thank you letter as your receipt and claim your own value up to $500. Put IRS link here.
