Tax Write-off for Equipment Purchases by Year End

11.18.2010

If your medical practice has plans to make information technology purchases (i.e., computers, monitors, servers, etc.) in early 2011, consider accelerating your capital expenditures into the fourth quarter of 2010.

Doing so may allow you to take advantage of a new small business tax cut which provides immediate incentive to invest under the Small Business Job Act that was signed into law this year. One of eight new small business tax cuts is an extension and expansion to immediately expense capital investments.

Bottom line:  If you buy equipment that gets installed for use before January 1st, you can get a bigger tax write-off for 2010.

For assistance with your IT purchase, please don’t hesitate to contact Jim Boehm at Harmony Healthcare IT at (574)-968-5058.
