What is IRS Section 179?

Tax Savings designed for small- & medium-size businesses

Section 179 of the IRS tax code allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment and/or software purchased or financed during the tax year, up to $1,000,000. If your business buys or leases a piece of qualifying equipment, you can deduct the full purchase price from your gross income. The U.S. government created Section 179 to encourage businesses to spend money on equipment. If you would like to see your possible savings, click here for our 179 calculator.
