Business Vehicles

For 2009, the first year-luxury auto depreciation limit is increased by $8,000.  Thus, the first year depreciation allowed for a business vehicle is $10,960 for 2009, rather than $2,960 which would have been the old amount allowed.  This is only available for new (not used) business vehicles purchased and placed in service in 2009.

Questions on depreciation rules for Trucks and SUV’s should be directed to our office because those rules are dependent on other issues.
