Understanding 179 – Tax Laws

The 2022 179 Deduction is huge (a full $1,080,000 – that’s up 30k from last year). It will keep thousands of dollars liquid instead of giving it to the IRS.

With Section 179, any business can write off the entire/cumulative purchase price of new and used qualifying equipment on their 2022 taxes. What does this mean to your bottom line? Use The link below for the updated for 2022 Section 179 limits, and easy to use.

Section 179 encourages small and mid-sized companies to invest in themselves. The Entire $1,080,000 deduction can be claimed, all the way to the $2,700,000 cap. Once that limit is reached, the Section 179 deduction will decrease dollar-for-dollar.

This plan is very helpful for small to mid-sized business looking to grow and invest in their business. Most small will not reach 3+ million in purchases, making it a very viable tax deduction.

About the Section 179 Deadline

The Section 179 deduction does have deadline: to use the deduction for 2022, the equipment must be purchased (or financed/leased), and put into service by 11:59 pm, 12/31/2022.

Supply-chain issues when making your Section 179 purchases more difficult so the sooner in the year, the better.  In order to qualify for the Section 179 Deduction, the equipment must be purchased, financed or leased equipment and put into service by December 31 of this year

Qualifying Equipment

What Business Vehicles Qualify for the full Section 179 Deduction?

Many “work vehicles” that, by their nature, are not likely to be used for personal purposes will usually always qualify for full Section 179 deduction. This includes the following vehicles:

  • Vehicles that can seat nine-plus passengers behind the driver’s seat (i.e.: Hotel / Airport shuttle vans, etc.).
  • Vehicles with: (1) a fully-enclosed driver’s compartment / cargo area, (2) no seating at all behind the driver’s seat, and (3) no body section protruding more than 30 inches ahead of the leading edge of the windshield. In other words, a classic cargo van.
  • Heavy construction equipment will qualify for the Section 179 deduction, as will forklifts and similar
  • Typical “over-the-road” Tractor Trailers will qualify.

The Section 179 Tax Deduction is now a permanent part of our tax code.
