Suv tax break

How much will the tax break (Or accelerated depreciation) save me on a vehicle over 6000 pounds gvwr compared to a vehicle that's not eligible for the tax break? For the sake of the argument lets assume both vehicles are priced the same, and my tax bracket is 25%

How much will the tax break (Or accelerated depreciation) save me on a vehicle over 6000 pounds gvwr compared to a vehicle that's not eligible for the tax break?================>> For passenger vehicles, trucks, and vans that are used more than 50% in a qualified business use, the total deduction for depreciation including both the Section 179 expense deduction as well as Bonus Depreciation is LIMITED to $11,060 for cars and $11,160 for trucks and vans . The 6k pound vehicle tax deduction refers to Section 179 of the IRS tax code enacted by various Stimulus Acts
Certain vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating above 6k lbs but no more than 14k lbs, qualify for expensing up to $25k if the vehicle is financed and placed in service prior to December 31 and meet other conditions. This is the vehicle weight plus maximum payload and also is referred to as gross vehicle weight rating or GVWR.Many vehicles that by their nature are not likely to be used for personal purposes qualify for full Section 179 deduction. The vehicle can be either used or new. It must be used at least 50% of the time for business.

For the sake of the argument lets assume both vehicles are priced the same, and my tax bracket is 25%=============>>>>>Deductions reduce your taxable income, and can be useful for reducing US federal income tax.You can reduce your taxable income by $25K and tax liability by $6,250;$25%*$25K with Certain vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating above 6k lbs but no more than 14k lbs, qualify for expensing up to $25k.

note; when you dispose of the biz use suv/ cars later, you need to recapture the unrecaptured deprecaiiton taken previously as ordinary incoem taxed at 25%; The depreciation recapture rules contained in Sections 1245 and 1250 apply to business
property that is being disposed at a gain and that has been depreciated, amortized, or
expensed under Section 179.
