Though KUTX is a service of The University of Texas at Austin, over 85% of what it takes to keep KUTX on the air comes from the community. We’re a non-profit, non-commercial, member-supported station, and we rely on our listeners’ support to do what we do.
Donating your car is just one of the ways you can support Austin music’s home on the airwaves, and it’s easy to do!
If you have a motorcycle, car, truck or even an RV taking up space in your driveway, consider donating it to KUTX. Are you paying for storage or even moorage for a boat? We can help there too, and provide you with a tax deduction receipt.
The process is simple. Just call toll-free 855-KUTX-CAR (855-588-9227) to speak to a Vehicle Donation Representative, visit https://kutx.careasy.org/home or fill out the form below.
A representative will schedule a pickup that’s convenient for you and provide you with confirmation of your donation.
If the gross proceeds from the sale of your donated vehicle are $500 or more, you can also receive an IRS tax form 1098C stating the sale price of the vehicle. This amount is what you actually claim on the itemized tax return.
According to the tax law effective January 1, 2005, if the claimed value of the donated vehicle exceeds $500, the taxpayer is limited to the gross proceeds of the sale.
Finally, as our way of saying thank you, we will provide you with a one-year membership to KUTX!
Ready to donate your vehicle to an organization you believe in? It’s easy, just fill out this form.
