IRS Section 179


In addition to the launch of FALL COMMERCIAL VEHICLE SEASON (NOV 1 - JAN 2), IRS Section 179 provides a great opportunity for small business owners to invest in new equipment and realize tax write-offs on their 2017 IRS tax returns (up to $500,00). Normally, small businesses must spread deductions over several years. The tax benefits provided under IRS Section 179 allow many small businesses to write off up to $500,000 of qualifying new equipment in the year the equipment is placed in service.

Key Details

  • The qualifying vehicle must be purchased and placed into service between January 1, 2017 and December 31, 2017
  • It must be used at least 50% for business, based on mileage, in the first year it is placed in service
  • If you choose to use it for both personal and business use, the cost eligible for deduction would be the percentage used for business
  • Note that all businesses that purchase and/or finance less than $2,000,000 in business equipment during tax year 2017 should qualify for the Section 179 Deduction
