The Kelley Blue Book can help you determine your vehicle's value when you are considering donating cars. In fact, a good car donation charity should provide a link from their website right to the KBB guide itself. It is a valuable first step in learning how to calculate value on vehicles. Start by logging on to http://www.kbb.com. [Click on: “Used cars” at top, and select the year, make and exact model of your vehicle, then press “GO”. Select "Private Party Value."] You also need to fill in the exact mileage on the car and the zip code in which you will be stating that you live on your tax return.
