Businesses Can Continue To Deduct Up to $1 Million in Qualifying Nonresidential HVAC Equipment Purchases for the 2019 Tax Year.
The expansion of the Section 179 tax deduction in the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has been extended for the 2019 tax year. This means businesses can still take a 100% deduction for up to $1 million in qualifying nonresidential HVAC equipment purchases for the 2019 tax year, which obviously helps justify replacement costs vs. repair costs.
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that was signed into law in December 2017 contains the expansion of Section 179 – a real benefit for the HVAC industry. Created in 1958, Section 179 allows companies to take depreciation deductions for certain assets in one year rather than depreciating those items over the useful life of the product – historically, over a 39-year period for HVAC equipment. The tax reform bill incorporated HVAC products in Section 179 for the first time, and offered important savings for both small and large projects.
This change to 100% immediate expensing provides a great opportunity for building owners to save money when making new HVAC purchases…and it’s often enough money to convince them to replace old equipment with new and more efficient systems. Sales reps and contractors need to be prepared to educate their customers about this little-known tax advantage.
