Section 179 Tax Deduction


What is Section 179 and How Does it Work?

Section 179 of the Internal Revenue Code allows small businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment during the tax year. Thus, a ground transportation operator investing in a Sprinter or minicoach may deduce the FULL PURCHASE PRICE from gross income.

For the 2016 tax year, the deduction limit is $500,000 and the phase-out threshold is $2,000,000 for qualified vehicles purchased and put into service by Dec. 31, 2016. After $2,000,000, the deduction is phased out dollar-for-dollar until $2.5 million, at which point it is eliminated. However, purchases exceeding these amounts still benefit from the 50% bonus depreciation.
