IMPORTANT IRS TAX SECTION 179 CHANGE THAT WILL END DECEMBER 31ST 2014

This is major news for any business who had a profitable year and is looking for every possible tax advantage!

2014 IRS section 179 deduction

But that means you must purchase your new Sprinter van this month to take advantage of this opportunity. As many of you are hearing from your tax accountant, you either need to purchase a big ticket item or just write a bigger check to the IRS.

The new law that was just passed yesterday takes the Section 179 deduction back to 2010 levels of $500,000 advanced depreciation.

AS ALWAYS, I AM NOT GIVING YOU TAX ADVICE, BUT YOU REALLY SHOULD CHECK WITH YOUR CPA RIGHT NOW ABOUT THIS.

I have new 2014 Sprinter vans with huge Winter Event special offers, and you can take advantage of great programs on the new 2015’s as well.

It is most certainly the best time to make your purchase of a new 2014 or 2015 Sprinter van, especially if you will use it in your business.

On January 1st, 2015 everything goes back to normal pricing and the IRS Section 179 special allowance goes away!

Please bear with me on the inventory page

It has been a complete zoo for the past 9 days. Every day there are 10-15 calls wanting to get a van before the end of the month. Now I am not complaining, but I need everyone to please understand I am having difficulty keeping my inventory page up to date. I have sold a bunch of the units that are showing in stock, so if you see something that interest you, please send me an email to make sure it is still available.

I will sell at least 25 vans this month, and the way it’s going maybe more. I am so glad that I did stock up before the rush came.

I will get as much updated as possible, and if you have left me a message or sent me an email, I will get you a response just as soon as possible.

Thanks,

Dave the Sprinter Guy.

I just had a very happy Sprinter 4 cyl owner visit with me this morning!

He already has over 100,000 miles on his 2014 Sprinter with the 4 cyl twin turbo and 7 speed automatic transmission.

But here is the best part of the story, he says, the best fuel mileage he has obtained was 28.2 MPG and the worst was 22.5 MPG. He said he was on one run in the eastern US, in the mountains, with a 2000 lb cargo load, over the hard equipped cargo equipment that he has built in, and over a 400 mile trip he averaged 24.7 MPG.

He said he will probably get a 2016 Sprinter and will definitely get another 4 cyl. And by the way, this is his second Sprinter van, the one he replaced was a V6 that he was averaging 150,000 miles per year.

I am getting more 2014 Sprinter 4 cyl owners who are saying how great the new van is and how satisfied they are with the performance and especially the economy.

This is the annual Mercedes-Benz Winter Event and the Sprinter Guy has some special offers for you on new 2014 and 2015 Sprinter Cargo, Crew and Passenger vans. If you would like more details about some of the great special offers for this Winter Event, just complete the response form below and I will send you more info.
