Excellent news for businesses: President Obama approved the extension of Section 179 to 2013 levels (as part of a larger tax extensions bill).
So what does that mean? Just this: Business owners will be able to deduct up to $500,000 worth of qualifying equipment and property* that were bought (or financed) and put to use in their business during 2014. That means you still have time to purchase new (or pre-owned) Macs, PCs, printers, all-in-ones, or iOS devices from Connecting Point and receive this deduction. Connecting Point can even deliver and install the new equipment for you.
But don’t delay: the deadline is December 31st (and please remember we’ll be closing at 5pm on that day).
*Many types of equipment and property qualify for the Section 179 tax deduction. Consult with your accountant or other trusted tax advisor to discover if the equipment you are considering is eligible.
Also, we’ll be closed New Year’s Day. Regular hours will resume Friday, January 2nd. See you in the new year!
During the holiday season, many of us head for the AirPort. So it seems appropriate that, on Christmas Eve, we’re offering great deals on both AirPort Express and AirPort Extreme.
AirPort Express is a compact wireless router and music streamer. Great for roving portable networks, easily extending an existing Wi-Fi network, and streaming your music from iTunes to your home audio setup. It offers simultaneous dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi, and sets up in a flash from your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac. It normally sells for $99.99, but today we’re shaving 10 bucks off that price.
The all-new AirPort Extreme offers up to 3x faster Wi-Fi, utilizing the lightning-fast 802.11ac standard. It also features simultaneous dual-band support, and allows for printer and hard drive sharing via its built-in USB port. And its intelligent, powerful beamforming antenna array makes for a stronger, clearer, and faster Wi-Fi signal. Normally $199.99, today you can pick one up for $20 off.
And so ends this year’s ‘12 Days of Savings.’ Thanks to all of you for your unflagging support during the past year – and in years past. Believe it or not, Connecting Point will be celebrating its 40th birthday next year! Have a wonderful holiday, stay safe, and the best of wishes for you and yours in the coming new year.
PLEASE NOTE: Connecting Point will be closed Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, and we will be closing at 5 PM today (December 24th) and on New Year’s Eve.
This offer will be available all day Wednesday, December 24th, 2014.
