Q. What is the Section 179 deduction?
A. Section 179 of the IRS tax code was designed as an incentive for business owners to invest in their businesses and the economy by purchasing equipment.

The IRS website has a full list of equipment that qualifies for the Section 179 Tax Deduction. To qualify more than 50% of the property's use must be in the service of a trade or business.

Q. How much can you deduct?
