Create Your Own Tax Break for 2017

The Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015 provides businesses with additional tax benefits through December 31, 2019.

  • Under Section 179, businesses spending less than $2,000,000.00 a year on qualified equipment may write off up to $500,000.00 up front. This write-off off is now permanent, and retroactive to 2015.
  • 50% Bonus Depreciation on qualified equipment acquired and placed in service from January 1, 2015 through December 31, 2017. This falls to 40% in 2018 and 30% in 2019.
  • The $500,000.00 deduction phases out when a business purchases more than $2,000,000.00 in one year.
  • Companies cannot write off more than their taxable income.
  • The equipment must be placed in service by the end of the tax year.

What does this mean for businesses?

  • Our capital leases help businesses take advantage of the tax benefits (above) by extending payments out as long as 5 years.
  • Tax Savings could be greater than the amount paid in the first year of a capital lease.
