Car donation programs and services exist throughout New Jersey, and vehicles donated in New Jersey 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 New Jersey requires that the donor have the vehicle title. If you do not have title papers, you can apply for a duplicate title through the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC). To release liability of your donated vehicle in New Jersey, follow the same procedure as your would if you were selling the vehicle. Refer to New Jersey's MVC web site for more details.
