Did you know that you can get a tax deduction on equipment you purchase for your business?

It’s a part of the tax code called Section 179. It’s been around for a while, but a $1.8 trillion spending bill passed by Congress at the end of 2015 permanently capped the tax break at $500,000.

Companies that spend $2 million in equipment — anything from machinery, computers, chairs and desks, printers, testing apparatuses, business vehicles and even tractors — can qualify for the Section 179 deduction.

The limit for Section 179 has been incrementally and temporarily raised over the past several years from its initial $25,000-a-year cap to $100,000 in 2003, and then $250,000 in 2008 in an effort to drive spending during the recession. It has been sitting at $500,000 since 2010, but it hadn’t been permanently expanded until recently.
