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 50 percent bonus deduction, while the now permanent Section 179 provides equipment expensing up to $500,000.

  • The 50 percent bonus depreciation deduction applies to any dollar amount of qualified capital expenditures.
  • Used machine purchases do not qualify for the deduction.

SECTION 179 DEDUCTION

  • The Section 179 Expensing limit is now permanent at $500,000.
  • A dollar-for-dollar phase out of the deduction begins once qualified purchases exceed $2,010,000.
