In addition, Section 179 provides a bonus depreciation of 100% on most types of tangible personal property that’s acquired. This allows businesses to essentially expense all qualifying new assets with useful lives of 20 years or less.
Section 179 deduction dollar limits. The maximum amount you can elect to deduct for most section 179 property you placed in service in tax years beginning in 2018 is $1,000,000. This limit is reduced by the amount by which the cost of section 179 property placed in service during the tax year exceeds $2,500,000.
Section 179 qualified real property. For property placed in service in tax years beginning after December 31, 2017, section 179 qualified real property is qualified improvement property (as defined in section 168(e)(6)), and certain specified improvements to nonresidential real property placed in service after the nonresidential real property was first placed in service.
