Section 179 was raised to one million dollars for 2018, which means when combined with Crest Capital’s excellent equipment financing, you can take a substantial deduction from your 2018 tax year taxes, and also make your bottom line very happy. Download the free report for more info.
Section 179 is a tax deduction meant to help small and medium-sized businesses buy new (or new to them) equipment. This is because it allows them to write off the entire purchase price of qualifying equipment up to the deduction limit, which was one million dollars for 2018. Use the below calculator to see how much tax you can save.
The calculator presents a potential tax scenario based on typical assumptions that may not apply to your business. This page and calculator are not tax advice. The indicated tax treatment applies only to transactions deemed to reflect a purchase of the equipment or a capitalized lease purchase transaction. Please consult your tax advisor to determine the tax ramifications of acquiring equipment or software for your business.
Congress raised the Section 179 deduction limit for 2018 to one million dollars ($1,000,000). This is more than twice what it was previously, and made 2018 an excellent year to buy, finance, or lease qualifying equipment.
To utilize Section 179 for 2018, the equipment must have been purchased and put into service by midnight 12/31/2018. Use Form 4562 to claim your deduction.
The Section 179 Deduction was $1,000,000 for 2018. So companies can deduct the full cost of qualifying equipment from their 2018 taxes, up to $1,000,000. The "total equipment purchased” limit was 2.5 million (after that is reached, the deduction decreases on a dollar for dollar basis, before disappearing altogether once $3.5 million is spent).
Because the Section 179 “total purchase” limit is $2.5 million, it’s a true small and medium business tax break. This is because larger companies will routinely exceed the limits, and small businesses typically will not. So they reap the benefit (some say Section 179 is the “small business bailout”, and that’s definitely fair.)
The only caveat with Section 179 for 2018 is the equipment needed to be purchased and put into service between 1/1/2018 and midnight 12/31/2018.
The Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017 has raised Section 179 to $1,000,000 million dollars, and made the deduction permanent as well. This is great news for small and medium businesses, as they now know the deduction will always be there for them.But you do need to act to take advantage of Section 179.

The equipment listed above need not be new – it can be used (but new to you). Almost any "portable" (non-permanently installed) piece of business equipment will likely qualify. If you have any questions on whether something you wish to lease or finance will qualify for Section 179, you can always ask us, or reference IRS Publication 946.
Tax Code Section 179 limits have been modified by various Stimulus Acts over recent years. For further detail, contact your tax adviser or visit www.irs.gov and reference Form 4562.
