Most people think the Section 179 deduction is some complicated or mysterious tax code (likely from the name) when it really is quite simple. We thought we would take the time to explain it for you and how it can help you.
Essentially, Section 179 of the IRS tax code allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment purchased during the tax year you are currently in. That means that if you buy a piece of equipment for your business, you can deduct the COMPLETE purchase price from your gross income. This was created by the government to create motivation for businesses to invest into themselves.
Before the Section 179 of the IRS Tax-Code came into existence, businesses typically would write off the purchase of equipment over time through calculating the depreciation of the equipment. Though this was better than no write-off at all, it wasn’t the same as being able to write off the full purchase price of the equipment in that same year, which is a much larger tax write-off on the short term.
