Are you a small business owner looking to equip yourself with a vehicle to help your company? Tax code Section 179 might be able to help you get a tax write-off, so you save money while also helping your business grow.

We at Andy Mohr Truck Center take great pride in helping local business owners in the Indianapolis, Avon, and Plainfield areas. So, we're here to show you what Section 179 can do for you and how you can qualify for it today!

What Is Section 179?


Tax code Section 179 is a great way for business owners to save on their taxes when purchasing a vehicle. When buying certain vehicles, drivers can apply for a write-off of the full purchase price of the vehicle so your business can grow with ease.

This tax code is designed to make it easy for small business owners to equip themselves with a new vehicle while saving on taxes. Ultimately, this helps everyone grow, allowing local businesses to flourish while also supporting the local automotive industry.

What Vehicles Apply for Commercial Vehicle Tax?

In order to apply for tax code Section 179, drivers need to purchase a truck or SUV. If you purchase a truck with a GVWR greater than 6,000 pounds and a bed length of at least six feet, you're eligible for a deduction for the full purchase price of the truck.

Drivers can also choose an SUV or truck with a bed length less than six feet and a GVWR greater than 6,000 pounds. If you choose this type of vehicle, you'll qualify for a maximum first year depreciation deduction of the full purchase price up to a certain limit as well as 60% depreciation of the remaining balance.

If you would like to apply for this tax deduction, you also want to make sure you purchase your vehicle before December 31, 2021. In addition, in order for drivers to qualify, your vehicle must be used at least 50% for business upon being added to your fleet.

Here is an updated example of Section 179 at work during the 2021 tax year.
