Tax Deduction for Doctors & Medical Practices

Section 179 Tax Deductions for Doctors

The Section 179 Tax Deduction is up to $1,050,000!

A Section 179 tax deduction may allow a medical practice to take a tax deduction for the cost of qualifying purchases, such as new equipment and technology, in the year it is purchased into service. Section 179 can result in a tax deduction for up to $1,050,000, help lower your taxable income, and increase cash flow.* Please contact your personal tax advisor as every situation is different.

Especially now, as many medical practices are adapting to the current environment by implementing new standards of care, a Section 179 tax deduction could be a win-win. Not only are you investing in your practice with the equipment, technology, and tools needed to become more efficient and provide better care, but you may be also eligible for a tax deduction with Section 179.*

To qualify for a Section 179 tax deduction on your 2021 taxes, you must purchase and place qualifying equipment and technology into service by 12/31/2021, in addition to meeting other eligibility criteria under Section 179.*
