    Just wondering, can you finance a mower and make payments on it. Then at the end of the year when you still owe on it, take it to you're CPA and get the entire amount that you financed back so you can pay it off? I'm having a meeting with my CPA but I was just wondering because I've never financed any other equipment.

    sorry...John's right on that. Ask your accountant to walk you through the write-off process and how it affects tax deductions/tax returns.

    First, if you still owe on the mower a year from the purchase date you are in trouble. You need to pay that stuff off quickly. Put a couple hundred on it each month.

    Secondly, I don't believe it works that way either.
