How do I get the deduction?

Section 179 is a tax deduction for businesses that have placed new or used equipment into service within the year purchased or financed. This deduction is not automatic and must be elected. To elect to take the deduction, you’ll need to fill out Part 1 of IRS form 4562.

Make sure this completed form is attached to your tax return. Not all types of equipment qualify; therefore, you should consult with your accountant or tax professional before making any purchases.
