HOLIDAY HOURS: Connecting Point closing at 5pm New Year’s Eve

IRS Form 4562 for claiming the Section 179 deduction

Connecting Point will remain open until 5 pm today (December 31st). This includes both sales and service departments.

If you’re a business owner, that means you still have time to take advantage of the IRSSection 179 deduction

IRS Form 4562 for claiming a Section 179 tax deductionWhat is Section 179, anyway?
When your business buys certain types of equipment, it usually writes them off a bit at a time through depreciation. In other words, if your company spends $50,000 on a machine, it gets to write off (say) $10,000 a year for five years (these numbers are for illustrative purposes only).

Now, while it’s true that this is better than no write off at all, most business owners would prefer to write off the entire equipment purchase price for the year they buy it.

That’s the purpose behind Section 179: To stimulate the American economy (and your business) to move in a positive direction. For most small businesses, the entire cost can usually be written off on their 2015 tax return. In fact, this year Congress raised the ceiling on the Section 179 deduction limit to $500,000.

So don’t miss out – talk to your financial advisor right away. If it makes sense, pick up the computer systems, devices, and peripherals your business needs to remain strong and competitive in the coming year. And Connecting Point will remain open until 5 pm on New Year’s Eve to help make that possible. We can even offer up to 18 months interest-deferred financing for qualified applicants.
