November 14, 2008, Newsletter Issue #130: Trade copies of applicable tax forms with the charity and keep them on file.

Tip of the Week

If the amount of your deduction for your car donation is more then $500.00 then you must file the IRS Form 8283: Non-cash Charitable Contributions (http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f8283.pdf) with your itemized tax return. A copy should be mailed to the charity or donation program. The IRS requires that the charity verify your donation and file IRS Form 8282: Donee Information Return (www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f8282.pdf). The charity should send you a copy of this form for your records when you make a car donation.
