Take Advantage of Year-End Prices

Posted by Michelle Haupt on Nov 12, 2012 11:01:00 AM

With the holidays coming up, we know how important it is to get a deal on the items wedescribe the image shop for. This is just as true for your office as it is for your home. The Section 179 Deduction makes this even easier by allowing you to write off the full amount of qualifying purchases made in 2012 (up to $139,000) and take advantage of a 50% bonus depreciation on any amount above the deduction limit.

According to www.section179.org, “Section 179 of the IRS tax code allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment and/or software purchased or financed during the tax year. That means that if you buy (or lease) a piece of qualifying equipment, you can deduct the full purchase price from your gross income. It's an incentive created by the U.S. government to encourage businesses to buy equipment and invest in themselves.”

So what is all covered? The website explains, “Section 179 Deduction is available for most new and used capital equipment, and also includes certain software. Bonus Depreciation can be taken on new equipment only (no used equipment, no software). When applying these provisions, Section 179 is generally taken first, followed by Bonus Depreciation – unless the business has no taxable profit in 2012.”
