Year-end Technology Purchases Can Yield a Hefty Tax Deduction
Small businesses use section 179 to deduct the full value of computers and software purchased in 2014, up to $25,000

Almost every small business needs PCs, servers, printers, network gear, data security hardware or software. Fortunately, Section 179 of the tax code lets small businesses write off the entire cost of computer equipment and off-the-shelf software purchased and put in use before December 31, 2014.

Small Business Technology Savings

Intended specifically for small businesses, the Section 179 deduction can have the effect of reducing the cost of technology purchased by as much as $25,000. In addition, special offers may be available on particular items. Contact eMazzanti sales for details.

Examples of items that may qualify for the deduction: Read more →

Your Opportunity for Transformation

While this date may seem distant, now is the time to understand that the end of support and the end of life of Windows Server 2003 means that your business needs to ensure that it has a plan to migrate the applications and workloads currently relying on Windows Server 2003 onto Windows Server 2012 R2  or Microsoft Azure.
