If you're like many highly paid Americans you likely have a big tax bill coming up and are looking to mitigate that burden.


Did you know that some franchises qualify for a section 179 tax write off?


What is Section 179?

Section 179 of the US tax code allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment and software purchased or financed during the tax year. That means that if you buy (or lease) a piece of qualifying equipment, you can deduct the FULL PURCHASE PRICE from your gross income.

The current Section 179 Deduction is $1,000,000. The equipment must be used for business purposes at least 50% of the time to qualify.

Which franchises qualify for the Section 179 Deduction?

All franchises that lease, finance or purchase business equipment valued at less than $2 million qualify for the Section 179 deduction.

The equipment must be used for business purposes at least 50% of the time to qualify.

If you're looking for a way to reduce your tax burden and get a great return on investment, consider investing in a franchise that qualifies.

All of your small business' utility costs are tax-deductible, from water to electricity to the telephone. Keep in mind that while your primary home landline is not deductible, any other phones used for your business can get you tax deductions.

2. Marketing costs

All marketing and promotional expenses for your business are tax-deductible, including but not limited to:

4. Business property rent

You can potentially deduct expenses for your business property if you're leasing or renting it. Also, if you work from home, visit the IRS website to check whether common expense such as utilities, mortgage interest and insurance premiums are tax-deductible.

5. Loan interest

Getting a loan for your small business is not unusual, but what you may not know is that the interest paid on that loan could be used as a tax deduction. As long as the loan comes from a legal and traditional lender and the money borrowed is only being used to cover expenses related to the business, you can deduct those costs from your income tax.

6. Transportation costs

You can deduct business-related car expenses from your taxes, including gas and oil changes — as long as you keep track of the mileage. If you only have one vehicle that you use for both personal and professional reasons, though, you'll need to carefully calculate how much of the total mileage was dedicated to each in order to receive a deduction. The IRS also offers a standard rate option of 58 cents per mile driven for business purposes.

7. Inventory expenses

If your business manufactures or buys goods for resale, you may be able to make certain income tax deductions. The eligible deductions include the cost of raw materials, manufacturing and storage, and labor.

8. Equipment and machinery lease

The cost of leased equipment and machinery is deductible, whether it is a printer, a truck or a toolbox. However, since these are not one-time costs, they are usually deducted over many years rather than only in a single tax year. You can check out this page for more information on the Section 179 tax deduction.

9. Office stationery and furniture

Though they may be small, the costs of business-related items such as pens, paper, notebooks, desks and chairs are tax deductible if you keep track of them. The same goes for office supplies and furniture expenses.

10. Travel costs

Traveling for business purposes can help reduce your taxable income come next April. This includes travel expenses to attend seminars, trade shows, meetings or conventions. In some cases, you may also be able deduct the cost of renting a vehicle or parking fees while on business trips.

11. Labor costs

If you pay a freelancer or independent contractor more than $600 in one tax year, you are not required to withhold taxes from their earnings. Instead, they will be issued form MISC-1099 at the end of the year.

12. Wages

Although you may deduct the salaries of your employees come tax season, this does not apply to LLC members, sole proprietors or partners.

13. Employee benefits

Employer-provided benefits, like healthcare or a retirement plan, can be deducted from your taxes.

14. Business debt

If you've ever lent money to an employee or supplier who never repaid you, or made credit sales to customers who never paid, you might be able to claim the debt as a bad debt deduction on your income tax. But you'll need proof that the debt was incurred for business purposes, not personal reasons.

15. Retirement plan

If you're self-employed, you can open your own retirement account and contribute to it regularly. The money put into your retirement fund is tax-deductible and can be claimed on your individual income tax form.

16. Publications

If you can prove that newspapers, magazines or books related to your business are necessary for operation, you may be able to deduct the expenses associated with them--everything from a newspaper subscription TO cable TV.

17. Education

If you need to get a degree or extra professional training for your business, you can deduct these costs as educational expenses. But, you cannot deduct the cost of education if it's intended for a different career path or has nothing to do with your business.

Taxes your business accrues can be subtractions from your income tax, such as sales tax, real estate tax, or other local, state or federal business taxes.

19. Gifts

You can deduct up to $25 per person in a given tax year if you give employees holiday gifts or other presents.

20. Repairs

You generally can't write off repair and maintenance costs when filing your taxes as a homeowner. However, if you're running your business from home, these expenses are deductible as long as they were intended to fix something broken or damaged--not for restoration or improvement purposes. The same goes for repairs made to a rental property you use for business purposes.

Home office expenses

If you use a portion of your home exclusively and regularly for business, you may be able to deduct certain expenses related to the home office, such as rent or mortgage interest, property taxes, homeowners insurance, utilities and repairs.


Tell me the meaning of tax deduction?

A tax deduction is a reduction in taxable income, and thus results in a lower tax liability for the taxpayer. The most common deductions are for things like mortgage interest, charitable donations, and business expenses. There are many other potential deductions, but not all of them will apply to every taxpayer. The only way to know for sure which deductions you can claim is to consult with a tax professional or review the relevant tax code.


Business use of your car

If you use your personal car for business purposes, you may be able to deduct some of the related expenses, such as gas and oil. You can also deduct a portion of the vehicle's depreciation or "wear and tear." But you can only deduct the business-related portion of these expenses; if you use your car 50% for business and 50% for personal reasons, you can only deduct 50% of the relevant expenses. You will also need to keep meticulous records in order to substantiate your deductions.


Business meals

You can deduct the cost of business-related meals and entertainment, but there are some restrictions. The expenses must be "ordinary and necessary" and directly related to your business. They must also be reasonable in amount. You will need to keep receipts and other documentation to substantiate your deductions.


Charitable contributions

If you have a company that is a limited liability partnership and is taxable like a partnership, you have the option of making charitable contributions and passing the deduction onto yourself. The corporation may take a deduction from taxable donations if you have an IRA. Buying old computers or furniture for charity will bring goodwill, along with tax benefit. Unless you depreciated your equipment (written off) then you cannot claim any deductions.


Staying on top of your deductions

As you can see, there are many potential deductions for businesses of all types. The key is to keep good records and consult with a tax professional to make sure you are taking advantage of all the deductions that apply to your business. By staying on top of your deductions, you can save money on your taxes and use that money to grow your business.
