2016 End Of Year Tax Benefits

This year the IRS is offering a tax benefit of $500,000 on equipment purchased, leased, or financed by December 31, 2016. This means businesses can deduct the full purchase price of cameras, lenses, or accessories obtained from AbelCine from their 2016 taxes, up to $500,000. Consult with your tax advisor for how this can reduce your overall bottom line.

Section 179 also allows 50% first-year bonus depreciation after the initial $500,000 for qualifying new (not used) business assets that are placed in service calendar years 2015-2017.

Sample Section 179

Equipment Purchases $650,000
First Year Write Off ($500,000 Maximum) $500,000
50% Bonus First Year Depreciation $75,000
Normal First Year Depreciation $15,000
Total First Year Deduction $590,000
Cash Savings $206,500
