Section 179 Tax Deductions

Deduct Up To 100% of Purchase Price for Eligible Chevy Vehicles

Section 179 of the IRS tax code allows businesses to write off the entire purchase price of qualifying equipment for the current tax year. For most small businesses, the entire cost of qualifying equipment can be written-off on the 2018 tax return (for up to $1,000,000).

That’s some serious cash.

For GVWR over 6,000 lbs., all businesses can deduct up to 100% of purchase prices for larger trucks, SUVs, and vans with no per-vehicle limits of aggregate annual limits.

For GVWR under 6,000 lbs., businesses can deduct up to $18,000 of purchase price for coupes, sedans, small trucks, and small SUVs.

The qualifying Section 179 vehicle must be purchased and placed into service between January 1, 2018, and December 31, 2018. It must be used at least 50% for business, based on mileage, in the first year it is placed in service.
