Eligible Mercedes-Benz Models

As a business tax code, Section 179 applies to vehicles most Chicago drivers wouldn’t typically use for personal day-to-day travels, such as cargo vans, passenger vans, and buses. To earn a tax deduction of up to $25,000* on an SUV or crossover, however, it’s important to select a vehicle with a 6,000- to 14,000-pound GVWR. The following Mercedes-Benz vehicles fall in line with Section 179 requirements, and offer generous tax write-offs when you buy or finance:

  • G-Class: The military-grade G-Class SUV tows up to 7,000 pounds, and comes with everything you’d need for a job well done, including Trailer Stability Assist, power outlets, and navigation.
  • GL-Class: Offering notable fuel-efficiency, as well as a diesel option, the GL-Class SUV wows with its massive cargo area and 4MATIC® all-wheel drivetrain.
  • GLS: Powered by a 362-hp biturbo engine, the GLS is a full-size SUV with a 93.8-cubic foot cargo area and a towing capacity of up to 7,500 pounds.
  • Sprinter: Available in Van, Cab Chassis, and Minibus configurations, the upfitting-ready Sprinter is a powerhouse that’s built to meet the towing and hauling needs of practically any industry.

How Does Section 179 Benefit You?

You depend on reliable equipment, such as a high-performing work vehicle, to meet the needs of your customers. To make furnishing your business easier, Section 179 allows you to take a deduction on a new Mercedes-Benz GLS, GL-Class, G-Class, or Sprinter for the current tax year, instead of deducting the cost in increments as a depreciating asset. If you elect to finance a vehicle, the tax savings from the Section 179 write-off may surpass the first year’s total loan payment amount, making financing a highly affordable option.
