This year, 2017 marks the third year that Section 179 is in full effect for business equipment purchases. Section 179 is part of an act called the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act (PATH Act) that was passed in December of 2015.

What does this mean for crane business owners? In simple terms, crane business owners that purchase equipment before the end of the year may be eligible to write off up to $510,000 on their equipment purchases and then depreciate them up to the year 2019.* Please see the table below for an example on how you can save on your next crane purchase!
