In today’s economy everyone can use an extra tax write-off or two, but we don’t often think beyond clothes and furniture for donation to local charities. Yet cars are great donation items that will not only provide you with a sizable tax write-off, they will allow other families access to safe, reliable transportation. Free Charity Cars is a non-profit organization that has provided 4,000 donated cars to families in need. Do you have a little-used vehicle that’s not doing much but collecting dust? If so, consider donating it to someone who will put it to good use.
