Re: Section 179 tax credit

It is a business tax deduction but even if you are not a business you can still claim section 179 If you are a w2 employee... you can claim it on form 2106, it flows through to your Schedule A itemized deductions.

Re: Section 179 tax credit

If you ever get audited you will be asked to produce a vehicle mileage log: Date, Miles, Destination, Business Reason or Pleasure and the Business total mileage for the tax year will need to be 50% + 1 mile.

Re: Section 179 tax credit

The new law stinks, you use to be able to write off 100% of the value the first year for 6K lbs + vehicles........now it is limited to $25K.

Dont forget with Section 179 you are not limited to the full value of the item being depreciated. You can claim Section 179 for the half the amount in one year then claim half the next.


Also, section 179 isnt always a good idea... its designed for businesses who will be seeing their profits DECREASE in the future... if your profit stays the same or increases, section 179 is not recommended... taking normal depreciation is more advantageous

Re: Section 179 tax credit

Does anybody know if the limits for Section 179 have changed for 2013? I've read about a $12K limit the first year, but other documents indicate as little as $8K or as much as the full amount.

DGoral31, when you say that one can claim a deduction if you are a W2 employee, is that the case when the vehicle is needed in order to carry out one's duties? Like an inspector or field engineer, for example, who may use a personal vehicle to go from one work site to another?
