Leasing and Tax Credit Options
Tax Credits and Financial Help can Make it More Affordable to Buy A Machine
When looking to buy a piece of machinery - taking into consideration the tax advantages and financial options can be the incentive you need to upgrade or replace your existing fabrication machinery.
Section 179 Tax Deduction at a Glance for 2017:
2017 Deduction Limit = $500,000
This deduction can be used when purchasing used machinery and equipment. To take the deduction for tax year 2017, the equipment must be financed/purchased and put into service between January 1, 2017 and the end of the day on December 31, 2017.
2017 Spending Cap on equipment purchases = $2,000,000
This is the maximum amount that can be spent on equipment before the Section 179 Deduction available to your company begins to be reduced on a dollar for dollar basis. This spending cap makes Section 179 a true "small business tax incentive" (because larger businesses that spend more than $2.5 million on equipment won't get the deduction.)
