The Section 179 Deduction and Bonus Depreciation

WHAT IS SECTION 179 and Bonus Depreciation?

Section 179 and Bonus Depreciation allows companies to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment or software that was financed or purchased during the tax year. This means that if you bought or leased qualifying equipment in 2019, you are able to deduct the full purchase price from your gross income. In addition, you may also qualify for bonus depreciation. Section 179  and Bonus Depreciation was created to provide tax relief for small businesses, although larger businesses can also benefit from this tax code.

  • For both new and used equipment
  • Up to $1,000,000 if equipment is installed and put into service by midnight December 31, 2019

Take a look at what you could save on your new or used equipment. Enter the price of the equipment you are have or are considering purchasing, as well as your businesses tax bracket, then hit calculate and see what your true cost of equipment would be.
