INFINITI SUVs That Qualify for Section 179


If you need a business vehicle, you might be wondering about the Section 179 deduction and to which vehicles it applies. You can find Section 179 vehicles right here in our new INFINITI inventory. And, when you’re ready, our sales and finance team can help you apply for financing and answer your questions about the Section 179 deduction and how it applies to models like the INFINITI QX80.

What is Section 179?

Section 179 is a tax deduction that allows businesses to purchase larger SUVs and write them off their taxes. For that reason, Section 179 is often referred to as the “Hummer Tax Loophole.” Certain “work vehicles” and typical passenger vehicles that aren’t likely to be used for personal errands are almost always eligible for the full or limited deduction. These vehicles include classic cargo vans, taxis, forklifts, passenger vehicles, trucks, and vans that are used more than 50% in qualified business use.

Section 179 & SUVs/Crossvers

Certain SUVs and crossovers with a Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) higher than 6,000 pounds (but no more than 14,000 pounds) are eligible for a deduction of up to $25,000 if the vehicle is bought and “placed in service” before December 31.

For additional information about Section 179, and the requirements your business vehicle must meet to qualify for a full or limited deduction, be sure to consult your tax professional.
