It’s hard to believe, but it’s that time of year again to start thinking about how to reduce your practice’s tax liability for 2021. Section 179 of the IRS tax code, designed to encourage small businesses, such as dentists and dental specialists, to invest in their practices, allows them to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment and/or software that has been purchased or financed during the tax year from their total gross income. This means that they can write off the full purchase amount this year and are no longer required to depreciate the equipment over time as they have in previous tax years.

Great news – the Section 179 deduction has been further expanded again for 2021 so there has never been a better time to upgrade your digital dental imaging technology. Act now before it’s too late.

Section 179 Details for 2021

To qualify for the deduction, all you need to do is purchase or finance the equipment and/or software and put it to use (i.e. have it installed) in this tax year. In 2021, the cap limit for write-offs is $1,050,000, so you can easily deduct the full amount of any dental imaging equipment or software your practice may need. In addition, not only can you apply the Section 179 tax credit, but you can also begin adding additional procedures and production to your schedule for an even more savings and an accelerated return on investment.
