Advocacy

We often hear politicians from both political parties refer to small businesses as the backbone of the American economy. There is a very simple way that Washington politicians can empower small businesses and create jobs right now. Congress can extend the expense limit allowed under Section 179 of the IRS tax code. This allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment and/or software purchased or financed during the tax year.
That means that if you buy or lease machinery, vehicles and fixtures, you can deduct the full purchase price from your gross income. It is important because it stimulates the economy by encouraging small businesses to purchase equipment and hard assets. It also allows small businesses to have more cash on hand to operate and expand.
