Because Range Rover and Range Rover Sport have gross vehicle weight ratings greater than 6,000 pounds,** they qualify for an accelerated tax depreciation schedule. The vehicles can be depreciated up to 60 percent in the first year and fully depreciated in 6 years. A significant advantage compared to similarly priced luxury cars.
The comparisons below illustrate the tax depreciation advantages for business owners who purchase a new Range Rover or Range Rover Sport before December 31, 2016.† Please consult your tax advisor on how this information can be applied to your individual business situation.
