2021 Section 179 Tax Deduction For Small Businesses

What is the Section 179 Deduction?

Most people think the Section 179 deduction is some mysterious or complicated tax code. It really isn’t, as you will see below.

Essentially, Section 179 of the IRS tax code allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment and/or software purchased or financed during the tax year.


That means that if you buy (or lease) a piece of qualifying equipment, you can deduct the FULL PURCHASE PRICE from your gross income. It’s an incentive created by the U.S. government to encourage businesses to buy equipment and invest in themselves.

By taking advantage of these write-off's for your new finishing equipment from Superfici America, you may qualify to receive a significant amount of money back that can be reinvested into your business. Compared to years’ past, you may be able to write off the entire amount of your qualifying equipment up to $1,050,000. Additionally, businesses purchasing qualifying equipment may be eligible for an additional allowance called Bonus Depreciation.

Will I Qualify For The Section 179 Tax Deduction?

  • For 2021, $1,050,000 of assets can be expensed; that amount phases out dollar for dollar when $2,620,000 of qualified assets are placed in service;

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!
