Tax Incentives: Section 179

Tax provisions accelerate depreciation on qualifying business equipment, office furniture, technology, software and other business items. When you finance such purchases with Axe Business Funding, you may deduct a significant portion, up to $1,040,000 in 2020 (to be adjusted for inflation in future years). There is a dollar-for-dollar phase out for purchases over $2.59 million. Additionally, for 2020 bonus depreciation remains at 100% on qualifying assets. Consequently, not only will Section 179 help bolster your bottom line, you garner the benefits of new equipment and technology that will help grow your business.

To capture these tax savings, qualifying property must be placed in service before December 31, 2020. Simply choose your business equipment and Axe Business Funding will design payments to help you make a profitable decision.
