Answer: Deseret Industries 11th & Soto in Boyle Heights
Just south of Olympic, across the street from the Sears Store.

If they say no, you can try Goodwill

Tax Planning Ideas For 2009
Question: Remarried tax return. Need some?
I was living with my girlfriend since 2002 she wasn’t working and I claim her in my tax return “married filling jointly” for the next 4 years (2003 to 2007). The relation finished and we split without any legal stuff since besides “tax return” we didn’t had any other commitment to each other and I have no idea where is she now. I filed my taxes “single” this time in 2008 but i got married in february and planning on claim my new wife in 2009 tax return (married filling jointly) will i have a problem with IRS?
Yes, I have been in Texas since 2002. Texas recognize common law marriage but we where together before we came to the country.
Answer: You can't file as married unless you are married. You should amend your returns to correct this. Getting really married in 2009 will not be a big deal because lots of people will have divorces final early in 2009 and get married before the end on the year.

Donations Tax Deduction Values
Due to unfortunate circumstances you will find that a good number of people who donate cars have been deducting a suggested retail price. This means that a dealer would get something that is below the market value when they decide to resell your trade in car.
This means that when a dealer will sell you car they will give you a certain amount of money so that you can be able to have your tax reduced.
Charities were not also making a lot of money when they were doing their car donation tax reduction. This is the reason why in the year 2005 the IRS changed the rule from what was currently happening to what will be done.
If you happen to have a vehicle that is valued more than 500$, the deduction will be limited to the actual selling price of the charity.
Whoever the donor is, they must attach a statement of sale to the tax return in order to receive the deduction. Even if it is the charity, it is obligated to present the statement within thirty days.
It has been proven that no one can be able to give you your deduction amount before you have donated your car.
The main purpose of charitable car donation tax deduction is to help people know how they should go about when they decide to donate their vehicles to a charitable organization.
In the resent years many people have come to know how to go about donating their cars to the charity and they have also come to know that their donations are improving other people’s lives.
It has come to a situation where it is now a fully blown business. In the United States only nearly $650 million was lowered when about quarter million people took car donation deduction on their tax return in the year 2001.
Since then many people have come to embrace the charitable car donation initiative because it is helping many poor people reduce their federal tax return every year.
To find a charity that deals or accepts car donations is very easy. What people should avoid are the Profitable organizations that pose as non profitable charity organizations which are basically out to corn people out of their money.
