Substantial 2012 Tax Savings Through Section 179 Deduction
Products & Technology: Section 179 Tax Savings
Benefit from a Section 179 Tax Deduction With Any Kirby Lester Technology
Did you know about this tax gift from the U.S. Federal Government? Your pharmacy can apply up to $25,000 of capital investments to tax code Section 179 in 2015. While lower than previous years, this tax benefit is still highly advantageous for every pharmacy owner whose accountant suggests looking for a deduction this year. Stay tuned, as the official website states: "if prior years are any indication, the expanded Section 179 limits could be restored by Congress during 2015."

What does this mean? Real tax benefits this year when you invest in Kirby Lester tabletop-sized dispensing technology (every unit qualifies under the 2015 limit). Section 179 is no "creative accounting" or "fun with numbers". Just real tax relief with Kirby Lester, whether you purchase or lease. Start by calculating your estimated tax savings and net after-tax cost below.

It is not mysterious or complicated at all. Sec. 179 of the U.S. IRS tax code allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment and/or software purchased or financed during the tax year. Sec. 179 is an incentive created by the U.S. government to encourage businesses to invest in themselves and stimulate the economy.

What is covered?:
The Sec. 179 deduction is available for most new and used capital equipment, and also includes costs directly associated with the installation of qualifying capital equipment (e.g., installation, training, delivery, any necessary remodeling costs such as electric drops). Any Kirby Lester device is covered by Sec. 179. Whether you buy or lease, you are still saving the maximum amount with Kirby Lester. For questions about Sec. 179, visit
