Yes, you can deduct office furniture from your taxes!
According to research by QuickBooks, 1 in 10 businesses don’t take advantage of tax deductions! Business tax deductions can be confusing, but with an office furniture deduction, you can save a lot of money.
IRS tax code Section 179, allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of office furniture up to $1,000,000. Office furniture is any furniture necessary for the operation of the business including chairs, desks, cubicles, cabinets, tables, lounge chairs, shelving and artwork.
If your business is in the 35% tax bracket, buying $100,000 worth of office furniture in 2019 and deducting 100% of that under Section 179 would yield a tax savings of $35,000. That means the net cost is $65,000!
While office furniture is a necessary business expense, it is also considered an investment in the company. Because it is an asset, office furniture also qualifies for a 100% bonus depreciation write off. Depreciation means significant tax savings, but it is a complicated deduction that should be consulted on with your tax advisor.
Additionally, certain improvements to the interior of your commercial property also qualify for the Section 179 tax code. Interior design like painting the office walls and redoing the floors are also tax-deductible.
The end of year is quickly approaching, but it’s not too late to invest in office improvements and save money on your taxes. Make sure you are getting the most out of your potential tax deductions, don’t let easy money pass you by.
