Do you know about the Section 179 Deduction?
Section 179 of the IRS tax code allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment and/or software purchased or financed during the tax year. That means that if you buy (or lease) a piece of qualifying equipment, you can deduct the FULL PURCHASE PRICE from your gross income. It’s an incentive created by the U.S. government to encourage businesses to buy equipment and invest in themselves.
Essentially, this means that if you’ve purchased or will purchase or finance a Kemco system by December 31, 2016 your business qualifies for up to a $500,000 write off on equipment totaling $2,000,000 or less. The deduction begins to phase out dollar-for-dollar after $2,000,000 is spent by a given business, so this makes it a true small and medium-sized business deduction.
Bonus Depreciation is offered in 2016 at 50%. This is useful to very large businesses spending more than the Section 179 Spending Cap ($2,000,000) on new capital equipment. Also, businesses with a net loss are still qualified to deduct some of the cost of new equipment and carry-forward the loss.
When applying these provisions, Section 179 is generally taken first, followed by Bonus Depreciation – unless the business had to taxable profit, because the unprofitable business is allowed to carry the loss forward future years.
Want to see what your savings would be on the equipment you purchased?
