  • Section 179 for this year expires at midnight on December 31st.

Section 179 At A Glance for 2023

2023 Deduction Limit = $1,160,000

This deduction is good on new and used equipment, as well as off-the-shelf software. To take the deduction for tax year 2023, the equipment must be financed/purchased and put into service between January 1, 2023 and the end of the day on December 31, 2023.

2023 Spending Cap on equipment purchases = $2,890,000

This is the maximum amount that can be spent on equipment before the Section 179 Deduction available to your company begins to be reduced on a dollar for dollar basis. This spending cap makes Section 179 a true "small business tax incentive" (because larger businesses that spend more than $3,780,000 million on equipment won't get the deduction.)
