Section 179 Tax Deduction - Act Now

Section 179 Qualifying Property

Section 179 was designed with business in mind. Almost all types of “business equipment” that your company buys or finances qualifies for the 179 deduction.

All businesses need equipment on an ongoing basis, be it machinery, computers, software, office furniture, vehicles, or other tangible goods. It’s very likely that your business will purchase many of these goods during the year, and will do so again and again. Section 179 is designed to make purchasing that equipment during this calendar year financially attractive.

 

Material Goods that Generally Qualify

  • Equipment (machines, etc.) purchased for business use
  • Tangible personal property used in business
  • Business vehicles with a gross vehicle weight in access of 6,000 lbs.
  • Computers
  • Computer “off the shelf” software
  • Office furniture
  • Office equipment
  • Property attached to your building that is not a structural component of the building (i.e. printing press, large manufacturing tools and equipment)
  • Partial business use (equipment that is purchased for business use and personal use: generally your deduction will be based on the percentage of time it is used for business)

Act Now

Section 179 can change each year without notice so it benefits you to take advantage of this generous tax code while it is available. Make sure you do your homework to verify that your company is leveraging the Section 179 deduction this year.

Section 179 for 2015 expires midnight 12/31/15. If you wish to deduct the full price of your equipment from your 2015 taxes and take advantage of deduction limits it must be purchased by then.
