Important Update - Section 179

"Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015" has been passed by Congress - expanding the Section 179 deduction limit to $500,000.

  1. The total amount of equipment a business can write off this year has increased from $25,000 to $500,000.
  2. This is retroactive to January 1, 2015.
  3. To count the write off for this year, physicians need to act by Thursday 12/31/15!
  4. These tax savings apply whether financing, credit, cash or check.
How It Works: Example - $100,000 Purchase
