What is section 179?
Section 179 of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tax code states that businesses can deduct the cost of property, machinery, and equipment as an expense (IR-2018-257). Most business owners know the section 179 deduction for vehicles, but this applies to other types of equipment used in a trade, such as medical equipment. Equipment financed also qualifies under the section 179 deduction and can sometimes be the most profitable option for businesses.
The IRS Section 179 deduction allows you to take the depreciation deduction for qualifying business assets in their first year. Our partner, Marlin Capital Solutions, has some further information and a convenient tax savings calculator you can find on their website.
