Back to News Section 179 allows business owners to deduct the full purchase price of capital equipment from this year's taxes.

Save Money on Waterjet Purchases with the Section 179 Tax Incentive

Section 179 can help you reduce the total cost of your waterjet purchase.

United States - Section 179

With the Section 179 tax deduction, you can write off up to $1,000,000 of capital equipment purchases on this year's taxes.

This is great news, especially if you’re running a small to medium-sized business with capital expenditure not exceeding more than $2,500,000. After this amount is reached, deduction is phased out on a dollar-for-dollar basis. This applies to both new and old equipment, and off-the-shelf software as long as purchases are made before December 31.
