BlackCSI Advises Businesses to Leverage Section 179 Deduction


"Section 179 is an opportunity business owners shouldn't overlook," stated Ruthann Black, President at BlackCSI. "With no guarantee this tax benefit will always be available, now is the ideal time to leverage Section 179 and maximize deductions.”

Eligible equipment purchases include technology solutions, managed services software, cybersecurity tools, business equipment and more, and businesses can utilize up to $1,160,000 in deductions. While BlackCSI specializes in technology solutions, the company felt it important to inform all organizations of this tax advantage.

“Above all else, our goal is to boost our customers’ profitability," Black added. “Normally, we can achieve that end by deploying leading edge technology that enhances organizational efficiency, but in this case, this is just too big of an opportunity to pass up. We’re not tax pros, but we believe it's our duty to share helpful information.”

Due to this deadline, BlackCSI recommends companies pause and assess equipment needs for 2024 before reaching the end of this calendar year. Purchasing or financing solutions before December 31st allows the full deduction of those costs under Section 179. Planning ahead is key to optimizing this tax benefit.

While BlackCSI focuses on leveraging technology to drive business success, Section 179 can provide immediate tax relief and is an opportunity not to miss. BlackCSI recommends consulting a qualified tax professional for guidance on Section 179.
