Ask A CPA - Depreciation

2018-Section 179 Expensing

The PATH Act permanently extended the enhanced $500,000 maximum amount of expensing available (along with the $2,000,000 phase-out threshold) under §179. Under the new law, for property placed into service in tax years beginning after December 31, 2017, the maximum amount of expensing is increased to $1,000,000, and the phase-out threshold amount is increased to $2,500,000. For tax years after 2018 these amounts will be indexed for inflation.
