Create Your Own Tax Break for 2018

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 provides businesses with additional tax benefits for 2018 and beyond.

  • Under Section 179, businesses spending less than $2,500,000.00 a year on qualified equipment may write off up to $1,000,000.00 up front.
  • 100% Bonus Depreciation on qualified equipment acquired and placed in service from September 27, 2017 through December 31, 2022. The bonus depreciation now includes used equipment. It falls to 80% in 2023, 60% in 2024, 40% in 2025, 20% in 2026, and expires in 2027.
  • The $1,000,000.00 deduction from Section 179 phases out when a business purchases more than $2,500,000.00 in one year.
  • Companies cannot write off more than their taxable income.
  • The equipment must be placed in service by the end of the tax year.

What does this mean for businesses?

  • Our capital leases help businesses take advantage of the tax benefits (above) by extending payments out as long as 5 years.
  • Tax Savings could be greater than the amount paid in the first year of a capital lease.
