July 21, 2006, Newsletter Issue #20: The Kelly Blue Book can be a good place to start assigning fair market value to your car.

Tip of the Week

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.
