Section 179 at a Glance for 2022


2022 Deduction Limit =
$1,080,000

This deduction is good on new and used equipment, as well as off-the-shelf software. To take the deduction for tax year 2022, the equipment must be financed or purchased and put into service between January 1, 2022 and the end of the day on December 31, 2022.

2022 Spending Cap on equipment purchases = $2,700,000

This is the maximum amount that can be spent on equipment before the Section 179 Deduction available to your company begins to be reduced on a dollar for dollar basis. This spending cap makes Section 179 a true “small business tax incentive” (because larger businesses that spend more than $3,780,000 on equipment won’t get the deduction.)

Bonus Depreciation:
100% for 2022

Bonus Depreciation is generally taken after the Section 179 Spending Cap is reached. The Bonus Depreciation is available for both new and used equipment.

The above is an overall, "birds-eye" view of the Section 179 Deduction for 2022. Contact us for more details on limits and qualifying equipment.

Here is an updated example of Section 179 at work during the 2022 tax year.

What is the Section 179 Deduction?

Some tax codes may be intimidating and tough to decipher, but they don't all have to seem complicated. Section 179 of the IRS tax code is an easy benefit to commercial vehicle buyers, allowing you to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment and software purchased or financed during the current tax year. If you buy or lease a vehicle from our Ford dealership, you can deduct the entire price from your gross income. This benefit works for many small businesses that want to buy equipment while investing in themselves and putting money back into their company.

As one of the few government incentives available to small businesses, the Section 179 deductions allow you to get much-needed tax relief and ensure you're ready to improve the experience for you and your company.

How Do Section 179 Tax Deductions Work?

Before the introduction of the Section 179 deductions, most businesses who purchased qualifying equipment would have to write it off piecemeal through depreciation. If you spent $50,000 on a vehicle, you could write only so much off per year before you had it completely paid off - not ideal for businesses that use their vehicles often.

However, that changed with Section 179 rules. You can now write off the entire purchase price of your qualifying equipment for the current tax year rather than over a certain number of years. This allows you to write off up to $1,080,000 per tax year - perfect for helping you outfit your business.

What Can't I Do with the Section 179 Deductions?

While the benefits are impressive for Section 179 deductions, you must pay attention to a few limits. For instance, you can only write off up to $1,080,000 and will only be allowed to purchase up to $2,700,000 in a tax year. Bigger businesses may not get the most value from these limitations, making this deduction perfect for smaller businesses that need added help to improve their business.

How Can You Qualify for Section 179 Deductions?

You won't have to jump through hoops to qualify for these special tax breaks. All businesses purchasing, financing, or leasing new or used business equipment during the current tax year can qualify for Section 179 deductions. You'll be able to expense up to $1,080,000 of assets, allowing you to equip your business for success properly. You will also need to use the vehicle for business purposes more than 50 percent of the time to qualify for Section 179 deductions. Otherwise, you're good to go once you have your vehicle and meet your business needs!
