FAQs

  • + For tax purposes, what should I expect after donating my vehicle?

    Goodwill Cars to Work provides you with all necessary documents to receive your tax deduction, including a letter of acknowledgement.

    If your donated vehicle is purchased by a low-income Kentucky family through Goodwill Cars to Work, you’ll most likely be able to deduct the vehicle’s fair market value from your taxes. A donor whose vehicle is sold at auction may be able to deduct the amount for which the vehicle was sold with a minimum deduction of $500, in line with IRS standards.

    *PLEASE NOTE: Goodwill Cars to Work cannot offer specific tax advice. For more information about vehicle donation tax donations, please review this brochure from the IRS or contact a qualified tax advisor.

  • + What types of vehicles will Goodwill accept?

    We accept cars, trucks, vans, SUVs, and motorcycles.

    We cannot accept vehicles that are wrecked beyond reasonable repair. Typically our free towing service can pick up the vehicle within seven business days of the donation date. Please call 1-866-654-CARS to discuss this option, or if you have questions about your vehicle’s condition.

  • + I want to donate a vehicle, but it has an out-of-state title. What should I do?

    Out-of-state vehicles are accepted; but the vehicle(s) MUST be driven to the Goodwill Cars to Work lot, and pass the Kentucky state vehicle inspection before being accepted. If your vehicle title is from a state other than Kentucky, please call our toll-free number, 1-866-654-CARS (2277), for specific details.
