Tax Breaks for 2020

April 7, 2020 / Industry News

Section 179 Expensing is $1,040,000 and 1st Year Bonus Depreciation is 100%.

Section 179 Deduction: Section 179 of the tax code under the new Tax Cuts and Jobs Act allows Small Business (those whose equipment purchases of all kinds, new or used, do not exceed $2,590,000) to expense the first $1,040,000 of qualifying equipment. Any amount over $2,590,000 will decrease dollar for dollar.

100% Bonus Depreciation under the new Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is retroactive to September 27, 2017 and will be extended through 2022. Any size business will be able to depreciate 100% of the Adjusted Cost Basis of new and used equipment during this period.

Section 179 is a tax code created to help businesses – By allowing businesses to deduct the full amount of the purchase price of equipment (up to certain limits), Section 179 is a fantastic incentive for businesses to purchase or lease equipment this year.

The various Stimulus Acts over the past few years have included special provisions for Section 179 and Bonus Depreciation, and greatly increased the limits on how much businesses can deduct. There is simply no better time than now to take advantage of Section 179 and Bonus Depreciation!
