Tip of the Week

When making a Massachusetts car donation, verfiy that you are giving to a qualified charity. Otherwise you cannot claim a tax deduction.
How do you find out if the charity is a 501(C)3 nonprofit? For Massachusetts car donations, call the Public Charities Division of the Attorney General's Office, at 617-727-2200, ext. 2101.
Also, find the vehicle title when making a car donation. A charity cannot accept the vehicle without the title. If you cannot locate your title, get a duplicate from you local Registry of Motor Vehicles, or go online to www.massrmv.com.
