What is Section 179 Deduction?
Section 179 of the Internal Revenue Code allows the deduction of the full purchase price of qualifying machinery and/or software purchased or financed during the tax year from gross income. This is beneficial to business owners because your taxable income is reduced substantially in the year of purchase of equipment, machinery or software. This is contrary to the general rule of deducting depreciation on the purchase of machinery or equipment over a period of years. So, in the year of purchase, you can deduct only a portion of the cost.
For example, let me give a hypothetical example. If your company spends $30,000 on a machine, it gets to write off (say) $6,000 a year for five years. But under section 179, you can write off the entire cost of qualifying equipment on the 2022 tax return up to the maximum investments allowed $1,040,000.This reduces your business income in the year of purchase of equipment itself.
What are the limits of the section 179 deduction?
