Save up to $1 Million on Your Taxes with Section 179

Thanks to new Internal Revenue Service guidelines, you can write off up to $1 million in tax breaks on the purchase or lease of new Ford commercial vehicles. In order to claim your tax break, you must purchase the vehicle or vehicles prior to December 31,2018. You must also place the vehicles in service.


Section 179 is uniquely designed to encourage small business owners throughout Gaffney, Spartanburg, Shelby and Kings Mountain to invest in new equipment. Traditionally, small business owners who purchased equipment and vehicles would have to spread their resulting tax deductions out over several years. However, Section 179 allows you to immediately write off up to $1,000,000 of eligible Ford commercial vehicles in the first year you place it in service.

How Does Section 179 Business Deduction Work?

Section 179 allows you to write off up to 100% of the entire purchase price of certain commercial vehicles, such as:

2018 Ford Super Duty Trucks (F250 & F350)

2018 Ford Transit Cargo Vans

In addition, Section 179 allows you to deduct up to $18,000 on your 2018 business tax return for the 2018 Ford Transit Connect Cargo Vans and a list of other Ford vehicles. With this option,  you can then deduct the normal depreciation on any remaining balance of the vehicle over the next several years.


It's important to understand the maximum IRS Section 179 Deduction of $1,000,000 may be reduced if your business finances and/or purchases over $2.5 million in business equipment during the current tax year.
