    Make the Most of Your Investment With Section 179 Tax Deductions

    Learn how you can benefit from Section 179 and about the Schneider Electric products that qualify for the deduction.

What Is the Section 179 Deduction?

Section 179 of the IRS tax code allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment and/or software purchased or financed during the tax year. That means that if you buy (or lease) a piece of qualifying equipment, you can deduct the FULL purchase price from your gross income. It’s an incentive created by the U.S. government to encourage businesses to buy equipment and invest in themselves.
