Section 179 is a great way to accelerate your tax benefits. Under Section 179, you can expense 100% of the cost of equipment acquired in 2018 up to $1,000,000. Depending on your tax bracket, you can save a portion of that equipment cost in tax savings. To take advantage of Section 179, we can structure your lease with a PUT (Purchase Upon Termination) option at the end of the term, such as $1, or a larger predefined amount such as 10% or 20%. At the end of term, equipment must be purchased or the lease renewed to be eligible for this deduction (equipment cannot be returned).
With leasing, you are able to customize a program to address your needs & requirements - cash flow, budget, transaction structure, cyclical fluctuations, etc. For example, some leases allow you to miss one or more payments without a penalty, an important feature for seasonal businesses.

The IRS does not consider an operating lease to be a purchase, but rather a tax-deductible overhead expense. Therefore, you can deduct the lease payments from your business income. Also, because lease payments are treated as expenses on a company's income statement, equipment does not have to be depreciated over five to seven years.
