    An equipment/truck lease is 100% deductible as an expense, there is no interest expense separate from the lease. If you purchase the vehicle, you depreciate the principal and expense the interest.

    Lawnlad is correct assuming 100% business use.

    If partial personal use, only the business percentage is deductible.
