Section 179 Tax Savings

 


THE DETAILS

Now is the time to purchase the additional vehicle(s) needed for your business. Current tax regulations may allow you to expense up to 100% of your truck purchase(s) during the first year of ownership.

SECTION 179 FIRST-YEAR EXPENSING

A Ram® truck is generally considered Section 179 property for U.S. Federal Income Tax purposes. This means a taxpayer may elect to treat the cost of any Section 179 property as an expense, allowed as a deduction for the taxable year in which the property is placed in service. A qualifying business may expense up to $500,000 of Section 179 property during 2016.

 

Consult your tax professional to determine your vehicle depreciation and tax benefits.

The listed property expensing restrictions provided in Section 280F do not apply to a vehicle that is considered to be a qualified nonpersonal use vehicle. A qualified nonpersonal use vehicle is by virtue of its nature or design not likely to be used more than a de minimis amount for personal purposes. For more information, see Income Tax Regulation Section 1.280F-6(c)(3)(iii), Income Tax Regulation Section 1.274-5(k)(7), Publication 946 - How to Depreciate Property and consult your tax advisor as to the proper tax treatment of all business-vehicle purchases.
