Tax Deduction for Equipment Purchases

Do you need new equipment for your business? The Section 179 tax benefit for equipment purchases can save your business a lot of money.

PATH, the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015, includes a permanent extension of the Section 179 deduction. The deduction limit was raised from $25,000 to $500,000, and the spending cap on qualifying equipment purchases increased from $200,000 to $2 million. In addition, the bill allows businesses to depreciate 50% of the cost of eligible equipment purchased in 2015, 2016 and 2017. That depreciation amount will drop to 40% for 2018 and 2019.
