About the interview Carl notes, "Business owners that have been putting off a substantial computer upgrade will find that 2017 is an excellent year to begin enjoying the full benefits of modern technology. Section 179 of the tax code lets businesses write off the entire cost of computer equipment and off-the-shelf software purchased and put in use before December 31, 2017.  A large deduction limit allows businesses to conserve cash on qualifying major technology outlays, reducing the net cost substantially. Many business owners find that, if they lease or finance their Section 179 qualified equipment, the tax savings exceed the first year's payments on the equipment."
