Vet-Advantage: BLOG UPDATE

everyone benefits when veterinary practices explore these tax breaks

Vet Advantage image: Depending on the equipment investment for 2017, a veterinary practice may be eligible to claim both the Sec. 179 expense and Section 168(k) Bonus Depreciation.

Sections 179 and 168(k) depreciation options of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code can become glorious, money-saving strategies for smart veterinary practices. Here’s why. If a practice needs to purchase new equipment — they may be able todeduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment during the tax year in which it was placed in service if they elect to do so under Section 179… instead of deducting a portion of the purchase price over five years through standard depreciation. So, it may benefit any practice looking to acquire more accurate tools, add a valuable new service, create a more ergonomic workspace, increase their skills, accommodate more patients, or other purposes. Click here to Read More.
