You’re busy now, but the end of the year is fast approaching. That means it’s time to start thinking about year-end purchases and incentives. Starting 2017 off fresh can significantly reduce downtime and maintenance costs. Here are a couple things you should know as you start your year-end planning:

Section 179 Tax Depreciation

The House and Senate passed and signed a bill that expanded the Section 179 deduction limit to $500,000 at the end of 2015. That means that, in 2016, businesses exceeding a total of $2 million worth of qualifying equipment purchases have the deduction phase-out dollar-for-dollar. What does that mean for you?
