Since the charity isn't going to take a lot of time and effort to sell the car, they basically sell them on the wholesale market. So as a quick approximation, they'll sell for roughly the trade-in value of the car. That becomes your tax deduction.it was my understanding they're generally sold at auction ... less than 'trade-in value'( trade-in takes the car's actual condition into account; auction buyers assume something near on worst case )and that some of the shadier 'Fundraisers' sell to 'friends' .. for even less than auction price-j..... donated a car under the old rules
