Section 179 Tax Deductions

Deduct Up To 100% of Purchase Price for Eligible Ford Vehicles

Section 179 of the IRS tax code allows businesses to write off the entire purchase price of qualifying equipment for the current tax year. For most small businesses, the entire cost of qualifying equipment can be written-off on the 2018 tax return (for up to $1,000,000).

That’s significant savings.

The qualifying Section 179 vehicle must be purchased and placed into service between January 1, 2018, and December 31, 2018. It must be used at least 50% for business, based on mileage, in the first year it is placed in service.
