Example Calculation Using the Section 179 Calculator
Using a $75,000 equipment cost for a sample calculation shows how taking advantage of the Section 179 Deduction can significantly lower the true cost of the equipment purchased, financed or leased. In our example, $75,000 in equipment purchased has a true cost of $48,750. That’s $26,250 saved. Would you like an extra “25 grand-plus” this year on equipment you needed anyway?
In order to qualify for the Section 179 Deduction, the equipment must be purchased, financed or leased equipment and put into service by December 31 of this year!
