Section 179

Tax Deduction Info on www.Section179.Org!

RDO Works to supply customers the equipment they need to receive the tax breaks they've earned. 

The "Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015" (PATH Act) was passed by both the House and Senate and signed into law on 12/18/2015. This bill expanded the Section 179 deduction limit, which is good on new and used equipment, as well as off-the-shelf software.

2016 Deduction Limit = $500,000

  • Limit is good only for 2016
  • Purchased or financed equipment must be put into service by 12/31/2016

2016 Spending Cap = $2,000,000

  • Good on new and used business equipment
  • Deduction begins to be reduced on a dollar for dollar basis for purchases over $2,000,000

This spending cap makes Section 179 a true "small business tax incentive".

Bonus Depreciation: 50% for  2016

  • Bonus Depreciation is generally taken after the Section 179 Spending Cap is reached
  • Bonus Depreciation is available for new equipment only

Buy before December 31, 2016 to take full advantage of these tax incentives!
