By taking advantage of the Section 179 deduction you can lower your cost of investment and reduce your taxable income.

Although tax time is not a favorite time of the year for retailers, it is a great time to discuss the benefits of the Section 179 tax deduction when purchasing tobacco fixtures and cigarette displays. Making a purchase of a tobacco fixture of cigarette display is not just an equipment purchase, but a long term investment. By taking advantage of the Section 179 deduction you can lower your cost of that investment and reduce your taxable income.

Section 179 is a tax deduction created to help businesses. By allowing businesses to deduct the full amount of the purchase price of equipment (up to certain limits) without having to depreciate the expense over the life of the fixtures. Although there are benefits to depreciating equipment purchases, Section 179 is a fantastic incentive for businesses to purchase, finance or lease equipment within a tax year and receive the full deduction. By deducting the full cost of tobacco fixtures within one tax year (rather than depreciating the cost over five years), you actually lower the upfront cost of the fixtures. And these benefits can be further expanded if you choose to lease or finance the fixtures.

Section 179 is valid on most types of equipment. It is also aimed at general business equipment including tobacco fixtures and cigarette displays. Section 179 is simple to use. All you need to do is buy or lease the tobacco fixtures (or any qualifying business equipment) and submit the details on IRS form 4562.  Ultimately, Section 179 can greatly help your bottom line.
