Section 179 Expensing Addition

field_block:node:page:body

Section 179 expensing lets businesses deduct the entire cost of certain equipment on their federal tax return in the year of purchase (instead of deducting depreciation over multiple years).

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) modified section 179 expensing. The TCJA expanded the list of qualified property, increased the maximum expensing amount to $1 million, and increased the investment phase-out threshold.

For property placed in service in a taxable year beginning before January 1, 2020, Minnesota retained an 80% addition to income in the first year and a 20% subtraction for the five years following the addback. Minnesota limited the portion of expensing on a state return to the difference of the amount allowable under federal law and the amount allowable in 2003.
