MCI offers bonus depriciation program

Posted on December 22, 2014

Motorcoach operators are getting a gift this holiday season with the return of bonus depreciation. And MCI is helping operators wrap up the savings, putting together year-end deals on MCI and Setra coaches.

For all coaches purchased and placed into service during 2014, a first year bonus depreciation of 50% of the adjusted basis of the coach is available to qualifying taxpayers. Lessees can save as well, as finance companies take advantage of bonus depreciation and pass the savings to operators in the form of a lower lease payment.

“This is a great opportunity for operators to put a brand-new MCI J4500, D4505 or Setra coach into their fleet and see a big tax advantage right away,” said Patricia Ziska, VP, MCI New Coach Sales. “The J4500 already offers the lowest total cost of operation among its competitors, while the D-Series coaches are real workhorses — and comfortable, too. Now is the best time to get a deal on the Daimler built Setra. For many operators, this kind of bonus should make a new coach very attractive, especially as the economy continues to improve.”

MCI encourages its customers to talk to their accountants or tax professionals to see how they can maximize their savings through bonus depreciation. MCI sales representatives and MCI Financial Services sales representative can offer further assistance.
