The other considérations

  • Vehicles must be named after the company (not the company owner).
  • Vehicles must also be used for business at least 50% of the time – if the vehicle is used for business less than 100% of the time, these depreciation limits reduce the corresponding percentage of personal use.
  • You can only apply for section 179 in the tax year in which the vehicle is “in service” – that is, when the vehicle is ready and available – even if you do not use the vehicle. Additionally, a vehicle first used for personal purposes is not eligible for a subsequent year if its use is changed to commercial use.
