Congress has signed and approved a permanent extension to the Section 179 deductionMoving forward, businesses can now immediately depreciate up to $500,000 in the year they purchased the assets, instead of over a specific period of time.

They have also agreed to extend the 50% Bonus Depreciation through 2019. This means businesses who either don’t qualify for Section 179, or who have hit the $2M limit on equipment, can depreciate 50% of the cost of acquired equipment.
