USA Taxes: Section 179 for Small Business Owners (Accelerated Depreciation): Deduct if In-Service by End Of Year
This site is not a tax adviser, this is FYI ONLY. Consult your own tax adviser. See also Section 179.org.
For a small business owner, the US federal tax code contains a benefit: Section 179 of the internal revenue code. Section 179 at a Glance for 2020, as per Section179.org:
- 2020 Deduction Limit = $1,040,000
- 2020 Spending Cap on equipment purchases = $2,620,000
- Bonus Depreciation: 100% for 2021
In essence, you can write off (fully deduct) depreciable assets acquired and put into service in 2021 as expenses (no depreciation schedule).
Any small business that needs a new computer, office gear, camera, or any normally depreciable asset might consider making those purchases and putting them into service by Dec 31.
