Get a Tax Deduction

Save on Storage and Maintenance Costs:
An aircraft can be a costly item to keep. Not only do you have to pay for storage, but you also have to pay for regular maintenance in order to keep it in good condition. However, you can eliminate these costs by Donating Your Aircraft to Mercy Car Donations.
Free Up Some Space:
An aircraft takes up a lot of space. So donating it is an excellent solution if you no longer have room for it or if you need the space for something else.
Help Those in Need:
Your aircraft donation will be used to support our programs that provide vital assistance to low-income individuals and families. Your donation may help us put a roof over someone’s head, feed the hungry, provide job training, or support other vital services. Call us today at 800-637-2914 to learn more about aircraft donation.

What Happens To Your Donated Aircraft?
Once we receive a donated aircraft, our team of experts will inspect it to see what kind of condition it is in. If the aircraft is in flying condition, we will use it in our flight operations. If the Donated Aircraft is not able to be returned to a serviceable condition, we will disassemble it and sell the parts. The proceeds from the sale of the parts will also go towards our programs and services. No matter your aircraft's condition, we are always grateful for the donation and will put the proceeds to good use.
Tax Benefits On A Donated Aircraft
When you donate an aircraft to Mercy Car Donations, you will receive a significant tax benefit. First, your donation is Tax Deductible because we're a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. You can deduct the full fair market value of your donated aircraft from your gross income on your federal tax return. Furthermore, because of the recent changes to the tax law, you can now deduct up to 100% of your adjusted gross income (AGI) for Boat Donations made in cash or property. This means that if you're in the highest tax bracket and you donate an aircraft worth $50,000, you can deduct the full $50,000 from your income, effectively eliminating any tax liability on the donation. In addition to the federal tax benefits, you may also be eligible for state and Local Tax Breaks when you donate an aircraft to Mercy Car Donations. Check with your tax advisor to see what tax breaks you may be eligible for.
By donating your unwanted aircraft to Mercy Car Donations, you can provide significant tax benefits to yourself and the charity. Contact us today to learn more about how you can make a difference with your donation. Thank you for your support.
