Have you purchased a Kemco system in 2016?

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.

Sustainable Solutions by Kemco

A local news segment in Richland, WA recently featured a Kemco Systems customer for their commitment to sustainability and “green” practices. Kemco’s wastewater treatment system is saving U.S. Linen & Uniform 12 million gallons of water annually as well as reclaiming a portion of heat from the waste water, saving the company on natural gas as well. For more on the facility and the benefits of the Kemco wastewater system, watch the short news story here.

Featured Project- Energy Efficiency and Sustainability

Sustainability, energy efficiency, “Green” concepts, LEED building design are often touched on in commercial laundry design meetings and reviews, but how often do decision makers grant the approval to move forward with these ideas realizing the environmental impact if these ideas are not incorporated?

Fuel Energy and Water – Water is still required to wash; water is heated. Commercial laundry machinery designs have limitations to the amount of water they can save. Heat energy required varies directly with the amount of water. In machines that heat water on board, one of the most fundamentally inefficient means of heating water, live steam injection, is employed. Filtering 100% of the wastewater not carried forward to drying machinery and recycling that filtered water optimizes the gallons per pound used for production and captures the heat available in the wastewater directly minimizing the amount of live steam injection that is required to achieve washing temperatures.

Our project of the month show cases a commercial laundry in the Pacific Northwest that has realized fuel and water use efficiency and sustainability objectives.

  • 55,539,274 gallons recycled in 27 months
  • Achieving a 79% recovery rate
  • 210,438 therms of heat energy

With Kemco’s water recycling system operating watch the numbers grow!
