A Quick Guide to Section 179 and AP Lazer Purchases


AP Lazers qualify for tax deductions through Section 179

No one likes to pay their taxes. We don’t like sitting down to fill out and file them, we don’t like that we don’t immediately see any return on that money. Really, none of it is enjoyable. That may be the only part of Al Capone (who went to jail for tax evasion rather than for any of his mob related activities) to which we can all relate. Taxes are a necessary evil.

What if there was a way to exponentially increase your profits this quarter, and every quarter to follow, as well as legally get out of paying a large portion of taxes for your business?

Would you be interested? Of course you would. This article will cover a few things about Section 179 and how it applies to you and your laser machine purchase.

What is Section 179?

Long story short, 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.

Section 179 and AP Lazer Purchases

Until further notice, Section 179 is permanent at the $500,000 level. Businesses exceeding a total of $2 million of purchases in qualifying equipment have the Section 179 deduction phase-out dollar-for-dollar and completely eliminated above $2.5 million. All AP Lazer machine purchases qualify for Section 179, as long as you put your laser machine into use by the end of 2016.

When you utilize Section 179, your business can deduct the cost of your AP Lazer system up to $25,000. Any amount over the $25,000 qualifies for an additional “Normal First Year Depreciation”, which comes out to be roughly a $200 deduction per extra $1000. That’s kind of like a laser engraving machine discount, no codes required.

Section 179 can provide you with significant tax relief for this 2016 tax year, but equipment and software must be financed and in place by midnight December 31, 2016. Use this 2016 Section 179 Calculator to see how much the Section 179 tax deduction can save your company.

Section 179 and Leasing

What’s the best part though? Great question. Section 179 can be used in combination with our lease to own programs. You get the laser machine in your hands, start making money off of it, and you’ll get a majority, if not all of the deduction this year. This means that you’ll end up deducting more than you even pay in 1 year for your AP Lazer machine!

The above is an overall, “simplified” view of the Section 179 Deduction for 2016. For more details on limits and qualifying equipment, please consult a tax professional. More information about Secion 179 can be found at section179.org.

5 Advantages of Leasing a Laser Engraving Machine

Should I lease or buy my laser engraving equipment? One of the first questions you will most likely ask yourself when purchasing a laser machine is whether leasing or buying is your best option. Here are 5 Advantages of Leasing a Laser Engraving Machine:

  1. Leasing any large equipment conserves your cash, allowing you to keep more of it available in the event other opportunities arise within your business. Additionally, you can spend more money on growing your business and navigate changing business conditions.
  2. Your laser engraving equipment can pay for itself. Once you are trained on the equipment, you can put it right to work as you earn money to pay the monthly lease payment. Any additional money earned past the monthly payment is profit for you.
  3. Leasing gives you the ability to write off lease payments and interest for tax purposes with Section 179. Using Section 179 with an equipment lease can be a very profitable decision. The amount you can deduct will almost always exceed your cash outlay for the year when you utilize an equipment lease. Leasing equipment and taking advantage of the Section 179 deduction can help not only with cash flow, but with profits, too.
  4. Leasing provides a considerable amount of options: deferring payments, $0 down, slow season payments, 0% interest for 3/6/12 months are a few options that many leasing companies offer. Additionally, you can control your monthly lease payments as you can choose from 12-72 month terms.
  5. Keep up with technology. At any time during your lease, it will be easy for you to upgrade equipment. When leasing an AP Lazer machine, all leases are lease to own. You will own your machine at the end of your term with our $1 buy out option. We will be happy to pay the $1.

The decision of leasing or buying a laser cutting or engraving machine is entirely up you and the needs of your business. To get the best rates in leasing, the age of your business and business credit is most heavily considered, and will not show on your personal credit. Competition can always work in your favor and we can and will connect you to the right lender for your needs.
