What is the IRS 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, up to $1,040,000. When you buy a piece of qualifying equipment, you may be able to deduct the full purchase price on your business income tax return. The U.S. government created Section 179 to encourage businesses to spend money on equipment, and benefits small and mid-size businesses who spend less than $3.5 million per year for equipment.

How does it work?

When a business purchases qualifying equipment, the depreciation is typically written off over time. Many businesses prefer to write off the entire equipment purchase price for the year they purchase it. The ability to write off the entire amount in a years time, instead of waiting over the course of several years allows small and medium businesses to add more equipment in that year. For most businesses, the entire cost can be written-off on the 2020 tax return. You can improve your business’s tax position by using Section 179 to expense the full cost of qualifying equipment in 2020. By taking advantage of Section 179, you are reducing your taxable income and creating tax savings.

Limitations of IRS Section 179

IRS Section 179 permits qualifying equipment and software purchases, up to $1,040,000, to be fully deducted in year one. This deduction is available for the 2020 tax year via the American Taxpayer Relief Act and can provide tremendous tax savings to participating businesses. Please be aware, however, that IRS Section 179 can change year-to-year. That said, be sure to take advantage of this tax code while it is still available.
