Frequently Asked Questions

Here are a few answers to some frequently asked questions:

Q: What is IRS Section 179? How can it help my bottom line?

A: Section 179 is the current IRS tax code that allows you to buy qualifying Ford vehicles and deduct up to the full purchase price (including any amount financed) from your gross taxable income if purchased before December 31, 2016. That means that if you buy a piece of qualifying equipment and products, you may be able to write off up to the FULL PURCHASE PRICE from your gross taxable income this year!

Q: Does the date of my purchase have an impact on the Section 179 deduction?

A: Yes. To qualify for the Section 179 tax deduction for the 2016 tax year, your Ford vehicle must be purchased or leased and placed into service by December 31, 2016.

Q: Which vehicles qualify for the greatest IRS tax savings?

A: Trucks with a GVWR greater than 6,000 pounds, and a bed length of at least six feet (i.e. Ford F-150/F-250/F-350) qualify for the maximum first-year depreciation deduction of up to the FULL PURCHASE PRICE. SUVs, including trucks, with a bed length of less than six feet and a GVWR greater than 6,000 pounds (i.e. Ford F-150 SuperCrew 5 ½ ft. bed, Explorer, Expedition) qualify for a maximum first-year depreciation deduction of up to the first $25,000 of the full purchase price plus 60% depreciation of any remaining balance.

Q: What about smaller trucks/vans/SUVs?

A: Vehicles of less than 6,000 pounds GVWR (built on a truck chassis), such as the Transit Connect, may still qualify under current bonus depreciation for up to $11,560 per vehicle in the first year. Passengers automobiles under 6,000 pounds GVWR may also qualify for up to $11,160 in depreciation.
