If you've been putting off donating your RV to charity because you don't want to deal with the hassle, you can rest assured the process is much easier than you might think. When it comes to donating vehicles to charities, one of the first things you need to determine is whether your donation is tax deductible. It's always a good idea to donate your vehicle to an IRS 501(c)(3) organization. This helps to eliminate any doubts about the eligibility of your donation for tax write-offs.

Many people donate their vehicles to charitable organizations in their local areas. This is a great way to give back to your community, and it also cuts down on the amount of time it takes to pick up your vehicle. If you're having trouble finding a charitable organization in your area, there are a number of national RV donation programs that offer towing service in every state. If you live in a small town or a remote part of the country, you might have to deliver the vehicle to one of the larger cities within your state.

Writing off Your RV Donation

Once you find a charitable organization to donate your RV to, you most likely will need to fill out a car donation form. Filling out this form helps to ensure that your vehicle is picked up in a timely manner. In addition, this paperwork helps charitable organizations begin to assess the value of your vehicle.

If your RV is valued at more than $500, the charitable organization is required to provide you with a receipt for the sale of your vehicle. The final sale price of your vehicle determines the amount of your tax write-off. If your vehicle is valued at over $5,000, you need to have a professional appraiser determine the fair market value for your vehicle.
