Savings For Your Business: SECTION 179: TAX DEDUCTION

Section 179 for UV Sanitation Equipment

Keeping your business open during the pandemic, while ensuring workers and customers that facilities are clean, may require purchasing new equipment. UV sanitation lights, electrostatic sprayers, sneeze guards and masks are examples of safety equipment that can help revive business operations.

What is Section 179 of the IRS Tax Code? Who Qualifies?

Qualified businesses, which includes casinos, offices, restaurants, retail shops, etc., buying sanitation equipment may consider writing off such purchases under Section 179 of the IRS code for the current year. The tax code enables businesses to write off the entire purchase price of qualifying equipment, not just the depreciation. As a way to ease tight budgets, this option is beneficial for establishments financially strained by the pandemic.

How Does it Work?

Section 179 comes with several guidelines and limitations. First, businesses
and equipment purchases must qualify for the Section 179 Deduction during
the tax year of 2020. For the current tax year, the total amount that can be
written off is $1,040,000 (deductions are phased out on a dollar-for-dollar
basis after a business spends $2,590,000). It is important to point out that
qualifying equipment must be used for business purposes more than 50
percent of the time in order for the write off under Section 179 to be valid. For
a smooth write off process, businesses should maintain accurate and
complete records of their qualified purchases.

Purchasing UV Sanitation Equipment for Businesses

As the information above applies to UV sanitation equipment eliminating the corona virus, qualified businesses
may write off their purchases for UV disinfection lights used for cleaning facilities. We offer many types of UV
fluorescent and far-UV excimer sanitation systems that can inactivate up to 99.9% of viruses, bacteria, mold and
spores. Unlike traditional liquid-based cleaning, these no-contact solutions are not abrasive and do not degrade
mainstream surfaces and machines. Capable of sanitizing rooms quickly, there is no drying or waiting period
associated with the UV disinfection lights.

For occupied areas, our far-UV 222 nm excimer lamps provide reliable and effective sanitation without
protective gear. These units do not cause burns on the skin and eyes during UV exposure. Capable of disinfection clothes and surfaces, this safety feature allows mercury-free excimer lights to be used in busy locations..
