Frequently Asked Tax Questions

Itemized Deductions/Standard Deductions - Gifts & Charitable Contributions


Rev. date: 1/2009

I donated a used car to a qualified charity. I itemize my deductions, and I would like to take a charitable contribution for the donation. Do I need to attach any special forms to my return? What records do I need to keep?

You must attach Copy B of Form 1098-C, Contributions of Motor Vehicles, Boats, and Airplanes, to your income tax return in order to take a deduction for the contribution of a qualified vehicle with a value of more than $500.
If you claim a deduction on your return of over $500 for all contributed property, you must attach a Form 8283 (PDF), Noncash Charitable Contributions, to your return.
