NEWS ALERT: SECTION 179 INCREASED TO ONE MILLION FOR 2018!
Makes Plans For a Profitable 2018, Because This Deduction is HUGE.
Don’t forget! The deduction limit for 2018 has been raised to a full one million dollars ($1,000,000). This is a substantial deduction, and means businesses can deduct the full cost of equipment from their 2018 taxes, including medium-duty trucks like Hino and Fuso. This can really make a difference to your bottom line at the end of the year.
Normally, capital expenditures are depreciable assets. Section 179 allows your business to elect to treat the cost of qualifying purchases as an expense, rather than an asset. Your business’ tax situation is unique, so please consult your tax accountants or attorneys to determine how much tax savings, if any, Section 179 can provide.
To take advantage of these high Section 179 limits for 2018, the equipment must be purchased and put into service by midnight 12/31/2018. Use Form 4562 to claim your deduction.
