Can A Laptop Be Purchased As A Business Expense?

The business is in it’s first year and is a new partnership LLC (two members); should a laptop purchased be a deduction for start-up or amortized as a capital expense?

Answer

A laptop would qualify for expense treatment under the Section 179 deduction for small businesses. Any quality small business tax software will have a section where you can elect to take the 179 deduction for business equipment purchases such as a laptop.
