How do I determine the FMV of my vehicles?

The most common way is to look at websites like Kelly Blue Book, or Edmunds. On these sites the FMV is considered to be the private party transaction value, not the suggester dealer retail.

Ultimately, it’s up to you and your tax advisor to determine the amount you can deduct for your donation, but ChangingGears will include KBB and Edmunds reports for your vehicle when we send your tax documents to help you make that determination. If your vehicle value is greater than $5,000, a certified appraisal is required. CG will have the appraisal performed and include the report when we send you all the tax documents.
