IRS Tax Code Section 179

If you’re a business owner researching ways to improve your bottom line and maximize business savings, you may have heard of Section 179 of the IRS Tax Code. This provision was created to incentivize business owners to invest in their operations with less risk attached. It allows businesses to deduct a portion or, in some cases, the total purchase price of vehicles, equipment, and machinery purchased or financed during the tax year. 


How to Qualify for Tax Code 179

Businesses that purchased, financed, or leased vehicles within the tax year may qualify for a deduction under Section 179 of the IRS Tax Code. Here are some factors that must be met to qualify for a deduction:

  • The vehicle or equipment purchased must enter your business as a conscripted vehicle within the same year the deduction is filed.
  • The vehicle or equipment purchased must be used for more than 50% of the time for business purposes.
  • The total amount written off during a tax year should not exceed the amount spent on vehicles or equipment.

This includes Pickup trucks with a full-size (8’) cargo bed and Heavy SUVs with a GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) between 6,000 lbs and 14,000 lbs.
