I Feel an Itch Coming On...

It's our seventh wedding anniversary today.

In other news, we finally had the Neon towed away by Kars4Kids.com. They are actually a poorly run charity and a suspicious front for orthodox Jewish New Jersey missionaries, but the bottom line is that they towed the car for free, and we can claim a tax-deductible gift. Besides, odds are the charity won't get any money anyway. My wife said she was okay with all that, and her name is on the title so it's her call. I did a quick check of some popular animal welfare charities (HSUS, ASPCA, Anti-Cruelty Society), and none of them appeared to have a car donation program, so we went with Kars4Kids. If you care where your money goes or you're donating a car with any value, you may want to look elsewhere.

There’s something else related to car donation I’d like to point out: The charity you wish to support has to be a section 501 (3) (c) organization to qualify you to a car donation deduction tax. Charities are educational, religious and charitable non-profit organizations. If the organization you want to donate your vehicle to is not a charity in the eyes of the IRS, you can’t get a car donation deduction tax. All legal charities are listed in the IRS Publication 78 called Cumulative list of Organizations or on www.irs.gov/eo. Even if you qualify for a car donation deduction tax, your deduction can not be larger than 50% of your adjusted gross income. There are a few other interesting things related to charitable car donations on a website called Car donation expert - you might want to check it out.
