What is a Section 179 Deduction?

A Section 179 deduction is a tax deduction that can be used on vehicles that are bought or leased for commercial purposes. Anyone who bought or leased a vehicle within the past year may quality for this deduction. The vehicle must be used at least 50% of the time for commercial use and it can be new or used. It must also be financed. Additional requirements for a vehicle to qualify for this deduction include:

  • The company must have a minimum of two years in business
  • The owner of the company and the company itself must have good credit
  • The vehicle should be titled in the company name
  • Deductions can’t exceed the net income of the business for the year

Metairie, LA business owners can deduct the percentage of the cost associated with how often it is used for business purposes. For example, if the vehicle is used 50% of the time, and equal percentage of the cost can be deducted. There are restrictions on the type of vehicles and the dollar amount of deductions. For questions on that, please consult a tax professional.
