What is Section 179?

Section 179 is a tax deduction that allows companies to write off the full purchase price of qualifying new and used equipment purchased during the calendar year. Companies can deduct the total of all eligible equipment purchased during the year, up to $1,050,000 in 2021. This makes Section 179 very attractive, since the company gets needed equipment and a nice tax write-off at the same time.

This is not meant as a tax or accounting advice. Please always consult your tax advisor if this makes sense for your business.


How does Section 179 work?

Typically, equipment is written off a little at a time through depreciation. In other words, if you spend $200,000 on a screening plant, it gets to write off (e.g.) $40,000 over 5 years if you chose a linear depreciation. Those numbers are just made up to give an example. Section 179 allows you to write off the entire purchase price of a crushing plant, screening plant, or any other type of qualifying equipment for the current tax year. This makes a big difference for contractors that use Section 179 to purchase equipment they need right now, instead of waiting.


How much money could you save purchasing a crusher and screen in 2021?

The example below is just an indication assuming a 22% tax bracket.

Purchase price of a crusher $400,000
Section 179 deduction (deduction limit $1,050,000) $400,000
Total first year deduction $400,000
Cash savings on your purchase $88,000
Cost of the crusher after tax savings $312,000


What would you do with an extra $88k ?
