33 The Section 179 Deduction What is the Section 179 deduction? Business tax deductionFull purchase price deductionGovernment incentiveWhat is “Bonus” Depreciation?Depreciation deductionNew Equipment purchasesWhat are these tax benefits?Section 179 and Bonus depreciation deductions are elements of the tax code that have been amended by Congress in efforts to stimulate the U.S. economy by encouraging businesses to purchase equipment. Not new, but there have been significant amendments for 2011.Simply stated, the Section 179 deduction allows businesses to deduct the FULL purchase price of qualifying equipment during the year of purchase. So, if you purchase qualifying equipment you can deduct the FULL purchase price from your gross income when calculating taxable income. “Bonus” deprecation? First define depreciation. A method of expensing the cost of equipment over its useful life, resulting in lower taxable income and lower taxes. The IRS has rules surrounding how quickly a company can depreciate the equipment. Bonus depreciation is an additional depreciation deduction allowed on qualifying property in the year it is placed in service.Takeaway – This helps your cash flow since you get the full benefit of the tax deduction in the year of purchase!
