OBL Blog Post Max Year End Tax

Many businesses look to mitigate what they will owe Uncle Sam come next April.  One of the easiest ways for small business to reduce taxable income is the Section 179 deduction.  This allows a business to depreciate 100% of the cost of qualified equipment purchases up to $500,000.  This is typically more equipment than a small business will purchase in a year.

So how does this help you?  Let’s look at an example:

Profit for 2017: $275,000.00
Equipment Purchases: $150,000.00
Taxable Profit for 2017: $125,000.00

If you are in the 20% tax bracket, this saves $30,000.00 in taxes ($150,000 * 20%).**
