Ford Commercial Vehicle Deductions near Greenville, SC


Recently, changes have been made to IRS Section 179. Now, small businesses can write off new equipment investments up to $500,000! This is a great tax benefit that can help you buy a new Ford and get a big write-off when you buy a new Ford commercial vehicle from our Ford dealership near Greenville, SC.

Small businesses can get up to the maximum 2017 tax deduction when they purchase a new Ford vehicle by December 31, 2017. Normally, small businesses spread these deductions over several years; but now, the tax benefits provided under IRS Section 179 allow many small businesses to write off up to $500,000 of qualifying new equipment in the first year it is placed in service.

To qualify, your commercial Ford vehicle must be used at least 50% for business, based on mileage, in the first year its placed in service. If you choose to use it for both personal and business use, the cost eligible for deduction would be the percentage used for business.
