Simple Steps to Donating Your Vehicle:

  • Contact us either by telephone or on-line to provide your car donation information
  • Our office will assign to local towing company for pickup, towing is free to our donors
  • Upon notification of pickup, we will send you an official donation receipt
  • All donated vehicles to Komen are sold at auction. Once sold, the IRS Form 1098c will be processed to the donor within 30 days of the sale. The IRS form 1098c is attached to the IRS form 8283 "Non Cash Charitable Contributions"

Vehicle donations made to Komen Southern Nevada are tax deductible. Our organization has been designated by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) charity. 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.

It is the donors' responsibility to become familiar with the donation process 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.
