As we step into the final stretch of 2023, it’s prime time for clinics to strategize their tax-saving moves, especially when it comes to significant investments like equipment. One key tax provision that savvy owners should have on their radar is Section 179. This often-overlooked gem in the U.S. tax code is not just a deduction, it’s a bonus for clinics seeking immediate tax relief.
What is Section 179?
Simply put, Section 179 allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment or software acquired during the tax year. This means instead of gradually writing off the cost through depreciation over several years, you can claim the entire expense in the year it was made.
Why is This Important Now?
The clock is ticking! To leverage the Section 179 deduction for 2023, SoftWave’s OrthoGold, UroGold, and DermaGold must be purchased and put into service by midnight, December 31st. Waiting until the last minute could mean missing out on substantial tax savings.
The Benefits of Acting Now
Direct Deduction: Take a full deduction of the purchase price from your gross income, significantly reducing the amount you owe in taxes for 2023.
Improved cash flow: The tax savings can free up cash, allowing you to reinvest in your clinic, perhaps even in areas like staff training or patient experience enhancements.
Technological Edge: Investing in cutting-edge equipment, like SoftWave TRT, not only qualifies for tax savings but also places your clinic at the forefront of patient care.
Budget Friendly: Knowing you can deduct the full amount, you might find it easier to make crucial investments in your business without worrying as much about the initial financial impact.
Limits and Qualifications
While Section 179 is designed to be accessible, there are limits. For 2023, the deduction is capped at a maximum amount raised from 2022 to $1,160,000, and the total equipment purchase limit was raised to $2,890,000. Also, the deduction cannot exceed your taxable business income for the year.
The Bottom Line
SoftWave TRT is a game changer for clinics and patients. Section 179 is a powerful tool that’s a win-win for everyone. It’s a straightforward way to improve your bottom line while investing in the assets that keep your clinic and patients at the forefront.
