CDS now uses SSL to protect our clients data!

Monday, December 14th, 2009


When you enter information on the internet via an unsecured website, you potentially expose your private data to the prying eyes of cyber criminals.  This is the number one way a cyber thief steals data and creates false identities using YOUR name!

At Car Donation Services we value our clients security and therefore are now securing our donation page with 256-bit level encryption. This means you can rest assured knowing that private information such as VIN’s, addresses and license numbers will not fall into the wrong hands.

Your good intentions are protected by using Car Donation Services!

Cut off date to donate is December 31 for 2009 tax reporting!

Cut off date to donate is December 31 for 2009 tax reporting!

The common question we get around the office during the last few months of the year is:

If I donate my car after January 1, will I be able to write it off my taxes in the previous year?

The answer is: No

If you want to get your tax write off for the current year, then you must have donated your car BEFORE December 31, 2009 by 11:59pm! Since we are only 7 weeks away (and this is our busy season), please be sure to fill out the donation form early!  Once we receive your form, we will contact you to schedule a pickup.   Alternatively, you are more than welcome to schedule a drop-off at our office.   We will then take care of all your paperwork and answer any questions you may have.
