NEW 2021 Tax Guidelines
Greater Benefits for Small Businesses

Potential tax breaks when you buy a new Ford Commercial Vehicle.

Thanks to the 2017 IRS Tax Cuts and Job Act, many small businesses that invest in new equipment, including qualifying new vehicles, will be able to write off up to the entire purchase cost of these purchases on their 2021 IRS returns.

Normally, businesses spread these deductions over several years. But now, many small businesses can write off up to the entire purchase cost of one or more qualifying new Ford trucks or vans. And there is no dollar limit on your purchases.

Is there a catch?

Qualifying vehicles must be purchased and placed into service between January 1, 2021 and December 31, 2021. It must be used at least 50% for business, based on mileage, in the first year it is plaecd in service. So if you choose to use it for both personal and business purposes, the cost eligible for the deduction would be the percentage used for business.

What's the urgency?

For the 2021 tax year, the qualifying vehicle must be purchased and placed into service by December 31, 2021.

The aggregate deduction of $1,000,000 under Internal Revenue Code Section 179 is most beneficial to small businesses that place in service less than $2,500,000 of "Section 179 property" during the year (vehicles and other business property). IRC Section 280F(d)(7(B) requires that the limitation under IRC Section 280F(a)(1) be adjusted annually, based on the CPI automobile component for October of the preceding year. The IRS officially announced the Section 280F depreciation limits in Revenue Procedure 2018-23. The passenger automobile imitation is $11,160, the trucks/vans under 6,000 lbs. limitation is $11,560. SUV's over 6,000 pounds GVWR are limited to a deduction of $25,000 under Section 179(b)(5) with the remaining basis in the vehicle depreciated under normal MACRS methods. The expensing restrictions under Section 280F do not apply to vehicles that are considered to be "qualified non-personal use vehicles" (QNUVs). A QNUV is generally a vehicle that, by virtue of its nature or design, is not likely to be used more than a de minimis amount for personal purposes.
