Take advantage of Section 179 - up to $1 million limit for 2018


Significant savings on equipment and technology solutions before the end of the year

Upgrading your business' technology can be costly. But in order to keep up with your competitors and stay ahead in the marketplace, it's a necessity. The good news is that by buying smart, you can get a chunk of that money back and Duncan-Parnell is here to help, from geospatial equipment to wide-format printers to 3D printers to Autodesk solutions.

Section 179 is a tax deduction available to businesses that allows you to recoup some of the money spent specifically on technology and capital equipment. In 2015, Congress passed the PATH Act, increasing the limit to $500,000. By writing off the full amount paid for any qualifying technology, you can significantly lower the cost to your business.

Well, for 2018, that limit has been increased to $1 million dollars!

  • For the 2017 tax year, Section 179 is available for equipment purchased and installed prior to December 31, 2017. All types of business equipment qualify for Section 179 tax benefits, including used equipment. The cost of off the shelf computer software is also eligible.
  • In addition, the law extends the special depreciation allowance. As a result, bonus depreciation tax benefits will also be available in 2017. This allowance gives taxpayers a special deduction of 50% of the cost of qualified property placed in service this year. The property must be “new” with its original use beginning with the taxpayer.
