Code Sec. 179 Expensing Limits
Internal Revenue Code Sect. 179 expensing limits were raised to $125,000 with a $500,000 investment limit for 2012. The 2010 Small Business Jobs Act, which was signed in September, raised the expensing limits to $500,000 with a $2 million investment limit for 2010 and 2011. It also permitted, for the first time, expensing of up to $250,000 of Qualified Real Property, such as qualified leasehold, restaurant or retail improvements. The expensing of Qualified Real Property was not extended in the new tax act.
