Section 179 Small Business Expensing
What this means for the owner of a commercial building:
The cost of any commercial HVAC equipment placed in service after January 1, 2018, can be deducted as a business expense under Section 179.
A business owner installs a new heating and air-conditioning rooftop unit. The equipment and labor for installation cost $14,000. Under old depreciation rules, the owner could only claim approximately $350 in depreciation expense annually over 39 years. Under the new law, the owner can deduct the full cost of the HVAC equipment (including installation costs) of $14,000 from their business income the year of the purchase and installation. At the top marginal tax rate that would be applied to this purchase, this will save the business owner $5,180 in taxes.
