Know the code!

Know the code!

President Reagan was famous for turning a phrase. In 1986 he said that “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” His line got applause and laughs and still gets quoted often today. Well, putting aside President Reagan’s dig at government inefficiency, there’s a government program that’s a well-kept secret…an IRS program…that can really help your business. It’s called Section 179 of IRS Tax Code. And you need to know the code because it can be a great tool for you in building your business. We’ll explain this a bit more shortly.

Everywhere you turn, the story is the same. Ships stuck at ports, supply chain chaos reigns, inflation is spiking. There are major headwinds affecting all countries, all businesses, all industries. If you’re a business owner, the constant stream of unsettling news is enough to make you just throw up your hands and accept fate. But you can’t do that.

Despite rising costs and equipment and materials shortages, you still have customers to serve. And the pace of change of technology demands that you stay in step or ahead of your competition to deliver value to your customers. You can’t duck for cover and hope it gets better. You need to invest in your business with equipment, machinery, materials, software. You need to generate sales and revenue now. And you need to do this smartly. So, what do you do?

For starters, there’s no denying the shortage of equipment, the competition for limited supplies and the steep up-turn in prices. But that’s where Section 179 of the Tax Code comes in. Section 179 may provide you with a significant financial benefit if you act now, purchase needed business supplies and take delivery before the end of calendar year 2021.

Section 179 is an expensing method offered as an incentive to business owners to invest in their business with the purchase of new equipment.  Typically, most companies will depreciate the cost of equipment or machinery or software over the course of a few years. But Section 179 allows you to fully-deduct the entire purchase price for property you place into service in 2021. You immediately lower your tax liability with equipment that helps you generate revenue now.

If you’re a small printing shop specializing in banners, signs and printing on a variety of materials in a variety of sizes, you may be interested in buying a new Digital Cutter at an approximate cost of $180,000. You could depreciate that equipment $36,000 per year over the course of 5 years, or you could take advantage of Section 179 and fully deduct the $180,000 cost on your 2021 tax return.

Tax codes can be tricky stuff but there’s some great information found on the Geneva Capital website that explains how businesses can benefit from Section 179. Of course, it’s always best to consult your tax advisor or accountant on all of these issues. But time is short on this calendar year, and equipment supply is even shorter.

Act fast, learn more and see if you can make Section 179 work to your advantage this year.

Calculate your savings with the interactive PDF that allows you to enter the MSRP for equipment to reveal the potential tax benefits. When you’re ready to act, call us at 844.MAC.WIDE or complete and submit the credit application and we’ll be in touch immediately to help you.




Introducing Argent® All-In-One Media for Multiple Applications!

Introducing Argent® All-In-One Pressure-Sensitive Vinyl

The versatile wide format media was developed for use in multiple applications and is ideal for floors, walls and windows

JACKSONVILLE, Florida (August 4, 2021)

Mac Papers and Packaging, one of the largest paper and packaging distributors in the Southeast U.S., announced today the addition of Argent® All-In-One removable pressure-sensitive vinyl to its exclusive line of wide format media.

“We’re incredibly excited to offer Argent All-In-One media to our customers,” stated Chris Jones, Vice President of Wide Format & Graphics at Mac Papers and Packaging. “The pressure-sensitive vinyl was developed for use in multiple applications, including one-step floor graphics, wall graphics and window signage, making it extremely versatile and cost-effective.”

Argent All-In-One is ideal for use as a floor graphic. The slightly textured non-slip (UL-410 rated) facestock enables an easy one-step process with no need to apply an overlaminate. Argent All-In-One is suitable for a wide variety of surfaces including tile, sealed concrete, polished stone, countertops, painted walls, glass and stainless steel.

“Since Argent All-In-One can be used on a wide range of surfaces, it’s cost-effective for printers and super easy to color match,” stated Jones. “We recently used the product for a creative door-to-floor application at our IDEA Center™ in Orlando. Instead of needing to run two types of media, we were able to use Argent All-In-One for both.”

Argent All-In-One media is compatible with eco-solvent, solvent, latex and UV printers. ​Easy to install with easy removal for up to six months, Argent All-In-One can also handle heavy foot traffic.

Argent All-In-One is in stock and available at Mac Papers + Packaging distribution centers across the Southeast. To learn more about Argent All-In-One, view our product information sheet below.
