It is easy to donate your car, truck, boat or RV in the District of Columbia. Car donation pick up services are available throughout DC, and vehicles donated in Washington 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 District of Columbia requires that the donor have the vehicle title. If you do not have title papers, you can apply for a duplicate title through the Department of Motor Vehicles. To release liability of your donated vehicle in Washington DC, the DMV requires that you surrender the license plates of your donated vehicle. Do not cancel insurance on the donated vehicle until you have returned your plates to the DMV, and be sure to keep your receipt. For additional information, please refer to the District of Columbia's DMV web site.
