SUV Tax Deduction

Businesses can claim substantial deductions for heavy (over 6,000 pounds gross vehicle weight) SUVs and other vehicles used in business. For heavy SUVs, businesses can deduct up to $25,000 of the SUV’s cost in the year it is purchased. The rules that limit the amount of annual depreciation allowed on passenger automobiles do not apply to heavy SUVs. Meaning, the remaining cost of the vehicle can be written off over five years; potentially adding up to a substantial first-year deduction.
