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.
