Potential Tax Breaks When You Buy A New Ford Commerical Vehicle

Section 179 of the tax code allows businesses to write-off up to $1,050,000 worth of one or more company vehicles.

Small businesses can get up to the maximum 2021 tax deduction when they purchase a new Ford COMMERCIAL vehicle by December 31, 2021. Thanks to the guidelines under IRS Section 179 of the IRS tax code, many small businesses that invest in qualified new and used equipment can now write-off up to $1,050,000 worth of these purchases on their 2021 IRS tax returns.

This qualifies as a purchase of new and used Ford Trucks or Cargo vans over 6,000 lbs. GVWR can get the maximum deduction on their 2020 IRS tax returns.


  • Vehicles must be used for business purposes more than 50% of the time.
  • Equipment must be financed and in place by midnight December 31, 2020.
  • Note that all businesses that purchase and/or finance less than $2.62 million on "total equipment purchase" during tax year 2021 (up from $2.59 million in 2020) should qualify for the Section 179 Deduction.
