When your business buys certain items of equipment, it typically gets to write them off a little at a time through depreciation. For a $50,000 machine, it may get to write off $10,000 a year for five years. The whole purpose behind the Section 179 stimulus is to motivate American businesses to invest in growth. For most small businesses, the entire cost can be written-off on the 2016 tax return (up to $500,000). Learn more about Section 179.
