Section 179 & Savings Calculator

Please consult your tax professional about specific tax savings for your business.

2017 Deduction Limit = $500,000

This deduction is good on new and used equipment, as well as off-the-shelf software. To take the deduction for tax year 2017, the equipment must be 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

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 is $2 million. This spending cap makes Section 179 a true "small business" tax incentive because larger businesses that typically spend more than $2.5 million on equipment will not be eligble for the deduction.

Bonus Depreciation: 50% for 2017

Bonus Depreciation is generally taken after the Section 179 Spending Cap is reached. Please Note: Bonus Depreciation is only available for new equipment; used equipment qualifies for Section 179 Deduction, but does not qualify for Bonus Depreciation
