Uncle Sam Increases Savings to Self Storage Owners on Kiosk Purchases

PHOENIX, Arizona – July 3rd, 2016 – OpenTech Alliance reminds self storage owners that INSOMNIAC™ Kiosks now qualify for increased tax deductions under the new PATH Act (Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act).  The tax act notably reduces the cost of a kiosk purchase by 35% percent, resulting in a savings of up to $6,300 per kiosk.  Taking advantage of this tax savings may just be the best financial decision you make in 2016.
Self Storage owners can learn more about this tax savings at Section179.org. The PATH Act was passed by both the House & Senate, and signed into law on 12/18/2015. This bill expanded the Section 179 deduction limit beginning in 2016 and allows businesses to write off the full purchase price of a kiosk during the current tax year (purchased, financed or leased plans).

Pricing: Kiosks prices range from $1,500 to $18,000 – Under Section 179, a purchase will yield a rebate in savings from $525 to $6,300 per kiosk. Click Here for Models & Pricing.

IMPORTANT: To qualify for the 2016 tax year, kiosks must be purchased by October 1, 2016 to ensure that the technology is implemented by midnight December 31, 2016.  Every year there is a last minute rush to place orders for this tax benefit, so be sure to get yours in early.  As with any tax consideration, please consult your accountant or tax attorney for individual case assessment before making tax or business related purchases.
