Buy a SMITH with a Section 179 Deduction

If you are looking at purchasing or leasing new or used surface-preparation or other equipment, here is great tax savings news. You can deduct all purchases up to $500,000 under Section 179.

A 50% bonus depreciation has been reinstated for tax year 2017, and is extended through 2019 under Section 179.

This means you can deduct an additional 50% of the amount over $500,000, in addition to your standard depreciation deduction. This applies to equipment acquired and put into service during 2017. Bonus depreciation will then phase down to 40% in 2018, and finally to 30% in 2019. When applying these provisions, Section 179 is generally taken first, followed by the bonus depreciation.

The good news is, you can buy SMITH or other equipment for your operations on credit or lease, and benefit from the tax savings.
