You better watch out,

You better not cry,

Better not pout,

We’re telling you why…

There’s still time to take advantage of Section 179 of the tax code this year!

This tax deduction is truly something to sing about, especially with its high deduction limit. Section 179 of the tax code allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment and/or software purchased or financed during the tax year.  So, if you want to join the digital revolution, or just make an evolution from another imaging system, the time to invest in DEXIS imaging products is before December 31. If you buy/finance your new DEXIS product and put it into service by December 31, 2016, you can deduct the FULL PURCHASE PRICE from your gross income. The 2016 deduction limit is $500,000, so you can get your new imaging systems and still have lots of room to save on additional technologies to offer your patients the best care in the New Year. 

Of course, DEXIS is renowned for best digital X-ray sensor and dental imaging software available that delivers clinically meaningful, extremely clear, and detailed images. For those seeking a caries detection device, DEXIS’ CariVu emits no ionizing radiation while supporting the identification of occlusal, interproximal and recurrent carious lesions and cracks with a 99% accuracy rate*.  And DEXIS intraoral cameras feature higher image resolution and ease-of-use enhancements. The deduction limit can allow you to get a tax break even if you buy all three types of imaging!

Sometimes, it’s not what you know or who you know, but where you are that makes a difference. Businesses located in specific special zones can benefit from an increase in the overall deduction amounts. The additional deduction amounts vary, depending on the zone in which your business is located. If your company operates in one of the following zones, you may qualify for the increased deduction limits:

  • New York Liberty Zone
  • Enterprise Zone and Renewal Community Businesses
  • Gulf Opportunity Zone (areas affected by recent Gulf Hurricanes)

As the end of the year approaches, the DEXIS family wishes you the best of health and a prosperous New Year — start by taking advantage of Section 179 and adding excellent imaging to the list of presents you give your practice this holiday season. Request a demo today using the link below!
