What Is IRS Section 179?

Did you know that Section 179 of the IRS tax code lets many small businesses write off the entire purchase cost of one or more qualifying new Ford vans, trucks, or cars? All businesses that purchase and/or finance less than $2.5 million in business equipment during the 2018 tax year should quality for the Section 179 vehicle deduction.

Just how much can you write off? Up to $1 million of these purchases, so you can assemble quite the fleet of Ford vehicles with this program. Below, you can see which models are eligible in our Section 179 vehicle list:

Section 179 Vehicles: The Parameters

Using Your 2018 Ford F-150 for BusinessIf you plan on claiming the tax deduction for a vehicle from our Section 179 vehicle list, you'll need to buy it and place it in service between January 1st, 2018, and December 31st, 2018. That gives you until the end of the year to get in on this tax-savings opportunity.

Another catch: Eligible vehicles must be used at least 50 percent for business, based on mileage, for the first year they've been placed in service. So, you can use your Ford vehicle for both business and personal needs, but the cost eligible for deduction is the percentage used for business.

There's No Better Time to Buy!

The end of the year is the ideal time for Maitland, Orlando, and Winter Park business owners to reap the benefits of the Section 179 vehicle deduction. Not only can you get top tax savings on Section 179 vehicles, but you can also take advantage of our current promotions and specials.

Feel free to browse our inventory of Ford vehicles online-or visit our showroom in person. Remember, you'll want to close the deal before December 31st. To learn more, then contact us at Peacock Ford!
