Section 179 at a Glance for 2017

To take advantage of this Great Tax Savings for your business, you must purchase your Dental Equipment before the cutoff time of midnight 12/31/2017.

2017 Deduction Limit = $500,000 - This deduction is good on new and used equipment, as well as off-the-shelf software. This limit is only good for 2017, and the equipment must be financed/purchased and put into service by the end of the day, 12/31/2017.

2017 Spending Cap on equipment purchases = $2,000,000 - This is the maximum amount that can be spent on equipment before the Section 179 Deduction available to your company begins to be reduced on a dollar for dollar basis. This spending cap makes Section 179 a true "small business tax incentive".
