If you retire and withdraw a depreciable asset in connection with the installation or production of a replacement asset, you can deduct the costs of removing the retired asset. If your expenses correspond to goods or services that have been provided to you, or to their use, economic return occurs as the goods or services are provided, or when the goods are used.

Instead of determining the actual indirect costs of the service, a standard indirect cost allocation equivalent to ten percent of the direct salary and wage cost of providing the service (excluding overtime, shift premiums, and additional benefits) can be used. All TACs now serve by appointment, so you'll know ahead of time that you can get the service you need without long wait times. If your expenses relate to goods or services that you provide to third parties, economic return occurs as you provide the goods or services. An agreement that requires the previous owner to provide services (or provide the property or use of the property) is not similar to a no-compete pact to the extent that the amount paid under the agreement represents reasonable compensation for those services or for that property or its use.
