What Is the Section 179 Deduction?

Section 179 is an IRS tax code that allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment and/or software purchased or financed before December 31, 2019. This means if you purchase a qualifying piece of time clock hardware or SaaS software, you can deduct the full purchase price of TimeClock Plus from your gross income. It’s an incentive created by the U.S. government to encourage businesses to invest in themselves
