X5 & X6 Tax Benefits


The X5 and X6 lead the industry with an impressive array of features and benefits. 

One that our customers may not be aware of is a significant tax deduction that is available when the vehicle is purchased for business use. 

The IRS categorizes SUVs with a gross vehicle weight in excess of 6,000 lbs differently than other luxury automobiles. As a result:
  • Business owners that purchase an X5 or X6 may be eligible for an Immediate Tax Write-Off of up to $25,000 of the Purchase Price.
  • Furthermore, an additional Bonus Depreciation Tax Write-Off is also available for such vehicles purchased on or before December 31, 2016.

Here's a quick example of how the math works:

X5 Purchase Price: $60,000 with 100% Business Use      
  • First, an immediate tax depreciation write-off @ $25,000
  • Then, an additional 50% bonus depreciation deduction (($60,000 - $25,000) X 50%) @ $17,500
  • Also, the 1st year Depreciation Write-Off (($60,000 - $25,000 - $17,500) X 20%) @ $3,500.
  • So, a potential total year depreciation of $25,000 + $17,500 + $3,500 = $46,000

Those are really substantial savings. To qualify, the X5 or X6 must be purchased (not leased) and must be used for at least 50% for business purposes.

To ensure a business owner can take advantage, the X5 or X6 must be placed into service by December 31, 2016.
