Don’t Forget about these 2012 Capital Equipment Tax Incentives

Section 179 and Bonus Depreciation tax breaksThere’s good news and bad news about capital equipment tax incentives and deductions in 2012. First, the bad news really isn’t all that bad, and there’s still plenty of good news under what’s called Section 179 Expensing and Bonus Depreciation.

Add in all the great promotions and rebates available through LexJet, including the iPad Mini Giveaway Countdown that expires on Dec. 14 or while iPad Mini supplies last, and you can make major improvements to your production workflow and cash flow.

This year, the Section 179 Deduction limit is up to $139,000. Last year, the limit was up to a whopping $500,000. Still, this year’s limit is a decent amount for deducting the cost of printers, laminators and other capital equipment, and most is likely below the limit for the majority of print shops’ capital equipment investments.

Under Section 179, business owners who purchase capital equipment for use in their business may be able to deduct the total cost of the equipment in a single tax year rather than depreciating it over a number of years. For instance, assuming a 34% tax rate, if you were to purchase a $30,000 printer, the tax savings on the Section 179 deduction would be $10,200. The cost of the equipment, net of tax savings is $19,800.

Under Bonus Depreciation, this year’s provision allows for an additional first-year depreciation deduction for capital investments placed in service during 2012 equal to 50 percent of the adjusted basis of the qualified property (last year it was 100 percent).

Once again, anything is better than nothing and these provisions are sure to help with your 2012 taxes and bring down your cost of ownership relating to capital equipment. Be sure to consult your tax advisor to determine which of these tax-planning tips can provide the best benefit for you and your business. For more information, FAQs and to calculate Section 179 deductions, go to www.section179.org.

Take Advantage of Tax Incentives before the End of the Year

Tax incentives for capital equipment purchasesThe Small Business Jobs Act, which was signed into law on Sept. 27, 2010, included several provisions designed to provide tax incentives and relief to businesses. There are several other provisions in the law designed to encourage lending to small businesses.

It is uncertain if these provisions, at least at their current levels, will carry over into 2012 and beyond. Therefore, since 2011 will end quicker than we think (where did the rest of the year go?), now is a good time to think about adding capital equipment – like printers, laminators and software – to ensure you can take full advantage of the current incentives.

Some of the key tax-saving provisions of the law include an increase in the Section 179 deduction and an extension of bonus depreciation.

Section 179 Expensing: The law increases the maximum amount that may be expensed under Code Section 179 to $500,000 and raises the phase-out threshold to $2 million. This means that business owners who purchase capital equipment for use in their business may be able to deduct the total cost of the equipment in a single tax year rather than depreciating it over a number of years. The enhanced provisions apply to tax years beginning in 2010 and 2011.

For instance, assuming a 34% tax rate, if you were to purchase a $30,000 printer, the tax savings on the Section 179 deduction would be $10,200. The cost of the equipment, net of tax savings is $19,800.

The new law also allows taxpayers to expense qualified leasehold investment property, qualified restaurant property and qualified retail improvement property. The maximum amount with respect to real property that may be expensed, however, is limited to $250,000 of the $500,000 overall limit.

This is a significant increase to the amounts that were previously available to expense. Prior to the enactment of the Small Business Jobs Act, the limit was $250,000 for 2010 and $25,000 for 2011 and real property improvements did not qualify for Section 179.

Bonus Depreciation: This provision originally allowed for an additional first-year depreciation deduction equal to 50 percent of the adjusted basis of the qualified property. However, the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization and Job Creation Act of 2010 provides a 100 percent depreciation bonus for capital investments placed in service after Sept. 8, 2010 through Dec. 31, 2011.

For equipment placed in service after Dec. 31, 2011 and through Dec. 31, 2012, the bill provides for a 50 percent depreciation bonus. It’s simply another good reason to think capital purchases before the end of this year.

Be sure to consult your tax advisor to determine which of these tax-planning tips can provide the best benefit for you and your business. 

Tax Incentives that Deserve a Second Look

By Gina Mascio, LexJet Chief Financial Officer

The Small Business Jobs Act, which was signed into law on Sept. 27, includes several provisions designed to provide tax incentives and relief to businesses. There are several other provisions in the law designed to encourage lending to small businesses.

Some of the key tax-saving provisions of the law include an increase in the Section 179 deduction, an extension of bonus depreciation and an increase in the period during which business credits can be carried back from one year to five years.

Code Section 179 Expensing: The new law increases the maximum amount that may be expensed under Code Section 179 to $500,000 and raises the phase-out threshold to $2 million. This means that business owners who purchase capital equipment for use in their business may be able to deduct the total cost of the equipment in a single tax year rather than depreciating it over a number of years. The enhanced provisions apply to tax years beginning in 2010 and 2011.

For instance, assuming a 34% tax rate, if you were to purchase a $30,000 printer, the tax savings on the Section 179 deduction would be $10,200. The cost of the equipment, net of tax savings is $19,800.

The new law also allows taxpayers to expense qualified leasehold investment property, qualified restaurant property and qualified retail improvement property. The maximum amount with respect to real property that may be expensed, however, is limited to $250,000 of the $500,000 overall limit.

This is a significant increase to the amounts that were previously available to expense. Prior to the enactment of the Small Business Jobs Act, the limit was $250,000 for 2010 and $25,000 for 2011 and real property improvements did not qualify for Section 179.

Bonus Depreciation: This provision allows for an additional first-year depreciation deduction equal to 50 percent of the adjusted basis of the qualified property. Bonus depreciation had expired on December 31, 2009, but the Small Business Jobs Act extended this deduction to purchases made before December 31, 2010. Qualifying property purchased in 2010 (including property purchased prior to the signing date) will be eligible for bonus depreciation.

General Business Credit: The new law extends the carry back period for eligible small business credits from one to five years. If the credit is an eligible small business credit and the business is an eligible small business, the credits generated in 2010 can be carried back five years and carried forward 20 years. The credits can also offset AMT tax. Prior to the new law, the carry back period was one year and the credits were limited in their ability to offset AMT tax.

Most general business credits are considered to be eligible small business credits. An eligible small business is defined as a non-publicly traded entity that has less than $50 million in gross receipts in each of the three years preceding 2010.
