Car donation programs and services exist throughout Illinois, and vehicles donated in Illinois to a non-profit classified with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization are deductible from your federal income taxes. In most cases, the state of Illinois requires that the donor have the vehicle title and transfer it to the charity. If you do not have title papers, you can apply for a duplicate title through Illinois Vehicle Services. To release liability of your donated vehicle in Illinois, follow the same procedure as your would if you were selling the vehicle. Refer to the Illinois Vehicle Services web site for more details.
