Maximize the Benefits of New Tax Changes with a John Deere Lease
John Deere Financial

Cross Implement can structure your equipment acquisition to help you capitalize on these tax benefits!

John Deere Financial Lease

Valuable tax provisions are set to expire at the end of the year.

 Section 179 allows $139,000 in capital equipment to be expensed in 2012, with a phaseout threshold of $560,000.

The Section 179 amount drops to $25,000 (threshold of $200,000) in 2013.

Bonus Depreciation is at 50% in 2012 for new, qualified equipment placed in service during the year. There are generally no bonus depreciation provisions in 2013 or beyond.

A conditional sale lease can finance your equipment and allow you to take advantage of these tax benefits.

Once you’ve maximized your deductions, utilize true tax leases to finance your equipment.

Lease payments are tax deductible  as business expenses on qualifying true leases.

Don’t wait – plan now to ensure you get the equipment you need and tax deductions you want!

Example: $500,000  in qualified equipment acquisitions.
