Tina doesn't get it. For anyone with a business of any kind, the subsidy of huge gas-guzzling SUVs is way, way beyond that for any efficient hybrid. An SUV weighing AT LEAST 6,001 pounds qualifies for these choice tax breaks (aka subsidies):<quoted text>Actually, just ended the subsities on EV's and hybrids would kill them far faster than your tax on SUVs.
1) Thanks to the 100 percent first-year bonus depreciation privilege, you can write off the entire business-use percentage of the cost of a new "heavy" SUV that is placed in service by December 31, 2011 and used more than 50 percent for business.(Used vehicles do not qualify.)
2) Under the Section 179 deduction privilege, you can write off up to $25,000 of the cost of a used heavy SUV that is placed in service by the end of your business tax year and used over 50 percent for business. You can then depreciate the rest of the business portion of the SUV's cost using the normal rules..
