The Section 179 tax benefit was created to boost the economy by helping small to medium businesses save money on qualifying equipment purchases – in the year the expense is incurred. Prior to Section 179, companies could only write off the value of the equipment’s depreciation each year. So, if a business purchased $100,000 in equipment that was depreciable over five years, companies could only deduct $20,000 each of the five years. Now, with Section 179, businesses can deduct the full cost of the equipment in year one! For 2020, companies can deduct up to $1.04 million in qualifying purchases, with a maximum spend of $2.59 million. The Section 179 tax incentive applies to both new and used equipment that is purchased or leased and put into service by December 31, 2020.
