The end of 2019 is just a few weeks away, it’s undoubtedly crossed your mind to start talking to your CPA and figuring out your end of year fiscal spend and how to best utilize this for tax deductions.
Since time is very short, we decided to help you by highlighting how Section 179 of the IRS Tax-Code can benefit your business and what BestPack can do to help you with this.
Section 179 at a Glance for 2019
Section 179 deduction is part of the Tax Code that allows businesses to deduct the purchase price of any qualifying equipment purchased during the tax year you are currently in. That means that if you buy a qualifying piece of equipment for your business and put it into service within that year, you can deduct the FULL purchase price from your gross income. This was created by the government to inspire businesses to invest in themselves and further their expansion.
2019 Deduction Limit: $1,000,000
This deduction is good on new and used equipment, as well as off-the-shelf software. To benefit from this deduction for 2019, the equipment must be financed or purchased and be placed into service between January 1, 2019 and the end of the day on December 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” (because larger businesses that spend more than $3.5 million on equipment won’t get the deduction.)
Bonus Depreciation: 100% for 2019
Bonus Depreciation is generally taken after the Section 179 Spending Cap is reached. The Bonus Depreciation is available for both new and used equipment.
Who Qualifies for Section 179?
All businesses that purchase, finance, and/or lease new or used business equipment during 2019 should qualify for the Section 179 Deduction (assuming they spend less than $3,500,000).
