Did you know that small business owners and commercial consumers can get a significant tax write-off when they purchase a vehicle for their business?  It's not too late for the 2016 tax year, but time is running out. Now is the time for your small business to take advantage of writing-off thousands of dollars on your taxes. When you combine that with Chrysler's incentive cash you have huge savings!

When a small business or commercial group purchases or leases a new Chrysler, Dodge, FIAT, Jeep or RAM vehicle for their business use, they can take advantage IRS Section 179 and get a tax write-off.  A Ram truck is generally considered Section 179 property for U.S. Federal Income Tax purposes. This means a taxpayer may elect to treat the cost of any Section 179 property as an expense, allowed as a deduction for the taxable year in which the property is placed in service. A qualifying business may expense up to $500,000 of Section 179 property during 2016.

Interested in learning more? The first step is to consult your accountant or tax advisor for specific details about how purchasing a vehicle for commercial use will affect your taxes. Next, view our commercial vehicle inventory to see what is available. Stones Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM has a wide selection of vehicles that will serve your small business needs, including the RAM Chassis, Promaster and Promaster City.

The savings don't end here, though. If you are a small business owner, you are eligible for up to $1,000 Extra Small Business Owner Bonus Cash on select models in addition to HUGE current factory rebates!
