Section 179 Deduction For Equipment

2019 Deduction Limit = $1,000,000

This deduction is good on new and used equipment, as well as off-the-shelf software. To take the tax deduction for the tax year 2019, the equipment must be financed/purchased and put into service by the end of the day, 12/31/2019.

2019 Spending Cap on equipment purchases = $2,500,000

This is the maximum amount that can be spent on equipment before the Section 179 Deduction available to your company begins to be reduced on a dollar for dollar basis. This spending cap makes Section 179 a true "small business tax incentive".

Bonus Depreciation: 100% for 2019

Bonus Depreciation is taken after the Section 179 Spending Cap is reached. The Bonus Depreciation is now available for new and used equipment.

What Is Section 179?

Section 179 was designed with businesses in mind. That's why almost all types of "business equipment" that your company buys or finances qualifies for the Section 179 deduction.

All businesses need equipment on an ongoing basis, be it machinery, computers, software, office furniture, vehicles, or other tangible goods. It's very likely that your business will purchase many of these goods during the year, and will do so again and again. Section 179 is designed to make purchasing that equipment during this calendar year financially attractive.
