What is the Section 179 Deduction?

For businesses in and around Chicago, the Section 179 tax deduction can be a big help. In short, Section 179 allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualified equipment or software that has been purchased or financed during the tax year. So, for example, if you buy or lease a commercial vehicle for company use, the full purchase price can be deducted from your gross income. Learn more in this overview from Badger Truck Center.

 

What the Section 179 Tax Deduction Offers

Here’s a basic breakdown of what the Section 179 tax deduction offers your business:

  • Deduction Limit – $1,000,000
      • This deduction is offered for new or used equipment that was purchased or financed and in service between January 1, 2018 and midnight December 31, 2018.

      • This is the maximum dollar amount that you can spend before the Section 179 deduction can be granted to your business.

  2. The vehicle must meet a 50% minimum on the amount of time that it is used for company business.
