Take Advantage of Big Tax Breaks

Bonus Depreciation extended, Section 179 Expensing made permanent

With the productivity and profitability of U.S. manufacturers in mind, Mazak encourages you to take advantage of two key tax incentives from the government regarding machine tool purchases.* A first-year bonus depreciation allows for a 100 percent bonus deduction, while the now permanent Section 179 provides equipment expensing up to 1,050,000.

100% BONUS DEPRECIATION

  • The 100 percent bonus depreciation deduction applies to any dollar amount of qualified capital expenditures.
  • Bonus depreciation is generally taken after the section 179 spending cap is reached.
  • Available for both new and used equipment.

SECTION 179 DEDUCTION

  • The Section 179 Expensing limit is now permanent at $1,050,000.
  • A dollar-for-dollar phase out of the deduction begins once qualified purchases exceed $2,620,000.
  • This deduction is good on new and used equipment, as well as off the shelf software. To take the deduction for tax year 2021, the equipment must be financed or purchased and put into service between January 1, 2021 and the end of the day on December 31, 2021.
