TAX ADVANTAGES ON THE PURCHASE
OF NEW AND USED EQUIPMENT
TWO KEY TAX BENEFITS:
- SECTION 179 provides a deduction on the cost of new and used capital equipment purchases — an investment cap applies. Deduction limit for 2023 is $1,160,000.
- BONUS DEPRECIATION can be combined with the Section 179 deduction for additional savings. Bonus depreciation enables you to take additional depreciation on new and used (new to you) capital equipment purchases.
- Bonus depreciation is currently scheduled to phase out over the next 4 years (see table below).
The intended purpose of these tax benefits is to stimulate the economy. The money you save in the short term can be reinvested in capital improvements, expansion projects, and more, so don’t wait — buy that new or used equipment today.
