Special Bulletin: Section 179 Tax Benefit Increase Expected

Business owners just received a Christmas gift card from Congress, but it expires in just 14 days.

On Tuesday, December 17, 2014, Congress passed the Tax Extenders Bill which extends several 2013 tax benefits through the 2014 tax season, including raising the limit of the Section 179 tax deduction allowing small business owners to depreciate the full cost of their equipment purchase the first year (rather than depreciating over a number of years). Prior to this bill, the maximum 2014 deduction was $25,000, but with the passage of this bill into law the limit increases to $500,000 for the 2014 tax year. The President is expected to sign this into law this week.

You can read more about the bill here.

Purchases - whether paid for in cash or financed - are eligible for tax benefits under Section 179, as long as the equipment is received by December 31, 2014.
