This provision permits, for 2006, the first $100,000.00 in equipment purchases to be fully depreciated in the year of purchase.
Salon equipment qualifies to be treated as
a Section 179 tax deduction.
A salon owner in a 34% tax bracket who buys $100,000 in new equipment this year would save $34,000 in federal income taxes for 2005 … $50,000 in new salon equipment would save $17,000. This really reduces the after-tax cost of the equipment … and permits you to enjoy this benefit entirely in the year of purchase.
Let the IRS and the section 179 benefit help you equip an all new salon … or remodel your existing salon … before they change the tax code again.
Plus, there would be additional savings on your state and local taxes; consult your tax advisor on these savings.
