St. Paul, MN (June 17, 2016) — Matsuura Machinery USA, Inc. encourages customers to take advantage of the Section 179 and Bonus Depreciation Exceptions.

“With savings of 20 to 40% on machine purchase, the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act includes several key provisions for taxpayers and small businesses” said Matsuura Machinery USA, Inc. VP Finance and Administration, Brad Baker.

This increase encourages the purchase of new equipment, where companies can write off up to $500,000 within the very first year alone. Along with the traditional bonus and normal depreciation, savings are abundant.

“Purchasing new equipment and saving money is straightforward and simple. Since the government has increased the 179 tax deduction—tax savings are essentially feasible for everyone,” Baker added.

The Section 179 Deduction allows a machine tool buyer to deduct the first $500,000 from their taxable income for up to the phase out cap of $2,000,000. For amounts over this $2,000,000 phase out cap, there is a dollar for dollar deduction of this Section 179 allowance. The Act also schedules the Bonus Depreciation to 50%. This Bonus Depreciation will allow a deduction of half the remaining basis after the Section 179 Deduction is expensed. Bonus Depreciation is only allowed for new equipment purchases.

Companies can then deduct their Standard Depreciation (usually over 7 years) on the adjusted basis after the Section 179 Deduction and Bonus Depreciation deduction. Section 179 Deductions apply to new or used equipment, but the Bonus Depreciation only applies to new machinery.

“These tax savings will lower your cost of ownership. Now is the perfect time to purchase a technologically-advanced Matsuura machine tool, gain a competitive advantage and enhance your profits,” Baker concluded.
