Potential Economic Effects of a Permanent Increase in the Section 179 Deduction Allowance Limit

The National Federation of Independent Business Research Foundation used the REMI PI+ model to quantify the gains in employment and production due to the theoretical expansion of the deduction allowance limit from $25,000 to $500,000 per year. The collected results suggest that an expansion of this caliber could increase employment by about 197,000 jobs in the first 10 years while output increases by $18.6 billion in that same time frame.
