End of Year Spending: Take Advantage of the IRS Section 179 Incentive

November 8, 2016

What is Section 179?

Section 179 is an incentive designed to help businesses have the opportunity to upgrade their equipment and technology. Qualifying purchases include both new and used equipment, and off-the-shelf software. This limit is only good for 2016, and the equipment must be financed/purchased and put into service by the end of the day, 12/31/2016.
