Your Increased Deductions

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act increased the maximum depreciation deduction limit for Section 179 from $500,000 to $1 million, and the limit on equipment purchases increased from $2 million to $2.5 million.

Under the new tax law, first-year bonus depreciation also increased from 50 to 100 percent of its cost. Both Section 179 and bonus depreciation allow 100 percent write-off on the cost of used equipment in the first year and require that the equipment be put into use in the year the purchaser takes the deduction. Purchases made and put into service after September 27, 2017 qualify for 2018 year-end tax savings.
