After Tax Cost of a Capital Lease

IRS Section 179 Expensing allows businesses to expense the cost of equipment acquired in the year it is placed into service. Think of it as one year depreciation. The allowance is up to $250,000 of qualified equipment for the year 2008. If leased under a one dollar or ten percent fixed option, the equipment still is eligible for immediate tax savings under this beneficial tax treatment.
