Retail Stockpiling: Inventory Taxes, Just-in-Time and Beyond

Jul 30, 2021

By Andy Harig, Vice President of Tax, Trade and Sustainability Policy, FMI and Elizabeth Tansing, Senior Director, State Government Relations, FMI

If you were in school during the 1990s and took a business course, there is a pretty good chance you read The Machine That Changed the World. This classic of business literature tells the story of Toyota’s rise to become the largest car company in the world through – in part – ”lean production” technologies. One of the most memorable characters in this history was Taiichi Ohno, a Japanese industrial engineer and father of the “Toyota Production System,” who seemed to speak exclusively in quotable phrases.  One of his most famous and influential sayings has shaped the way businesses have operated for the last three decades, “The more inventory a company has, the less likely they will have what they need.”

Taiichi Ohno created the concept of “just-in-time” (JIT) inventory management. Today, businesses in many industries, including the grocery industry, employ JIT to oversee production schedules and mitigate waste. Businesses do their best to forecast what products they will need against when they are most likely to sell them.

In the grocery industry, inventory stockpiling can be an important hedge, but it can also be a costly one. Apart from production issues and supply chain bottlenecks that make securing large quantities of products more challenging for retailers, one important reason grocers don’t typically stockpile large quantities of products is because of the tax implications of doing so. Put simply, big inventories mean big money left on the table.

A number of states have laws in place that tax inventory. We recently published an analysis that outlines various laws across the country requiring companies to pay taxes on inventory. For example, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia all have inventory laws on the books. In Maryland, there is a tax on business-owned personal property, including inventory, which is imposed and collected by local governments. Like Maryland, localities collect the inventory tax in Georgia. In Alaska, 15 of 19 boroughs levy a property tax and some may include an inventory tax.

At the federal level, businesses cannot deduct the cost of inventory until the inventory is actually sold. The IRS does allow the use of the last-in, first-out (LIFO) method of inventory accounting. LIFO helps protect against inventory price shocks that can result from inflation and is an important tool that creates consistency, aids in long term planning, and reduces the tax burden of businesses during periods of inflation.

In the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, a lot of assumptions about inventory management were put to the test. Shoppers across the country experienced empty shelves at their grocery stores for items we all use to keep ourselves and our homes clean, like hand sanitizer, bleach and personal hygiene products.

To prevent those kinds of shortages from happening again, you might be asking yourself, “Why couldn’t grocery stores act as shoppers did and stockpile items they know will be in high demand by consumers?” This question seems more urgent as inflation is driving up the cost of goods well beyond food and CPG products. The truth is retailers are adjusting – and always have adjusted – inventories as prices and other supply factors change. Recent press coverage of so-called “retail stockpiling” is presenting these efforts as a unique response to COVID and potentially a fundamental change to long-standing business models; but using inventory as a hedge against inflation is nothing new and represents the same kind of nimble inventory control as just-in-time does.

Ultimately, good inventory management is essential for any business, as Taiichi Ohno recognized years ago. The competition in the food industry is fierce, and grocers are always looking for ways to keep their prices down to maintain an edge over their competitors. However, the tax implications of stockpiling large quantities of inventory often means “just in time” delivery makes the most business sense and potentially will for the foreseeable future.

New Movie Danny Doom Now Available on Amazon Prime Video

The teen comedy from the filmmaker of The Pastor and the Pro and The Virgins premieres digitally today.

SEATTLE, WA, USA, July 30, 2021 / — Danny Doom, the new comedy from one-man studio Matthew Wilson Productions, makes its world premiere today on Prime Video. The story follows a young church intern who chases the girl of his dreams by masquerading as a mysterious rebel.

Born on September 11th, 2001, Danny seems destined for disaster. A difficult home and social life leads to a lonely childhood, but in high school he finally finds his way when he joins a church youth group. Life is all right after that, until he falls unrequitedly for his beautiful classmate Megan who has zero interest in church boys. But while performing with his church drama team Danny discovers a talent for inventing new characters. And a chance in-costume encounter leads him to realize that Megan will like him as long as she thinks he's a rebel. So Danny, as the rebel, teams up with Megan to help her get revenge against her awful ex. Will the ruse succeed or will it be another Danny Doom disaster?

This is the fifth feature-length film Matthew Wilson has written, directed, produced, and edited himself, hiring only a small cast and skeleton crew for the shoot days. His last effort, The Pastor and the Pro, was featured in the Wall Street Journal for its resourceful production techniques, as he has been able to produce and distribute films on a budget that Hollywood would spend to rent a parking lot. His work has also been featured in Christianity Today for uniquely handling Christian characters with comedy.

Danny Doom stars newcomer Gavin Michaels as the title character and Brett Hargrave as Megan. Supporting players include Paul Ryan Hobson, Sean Abplanalp, Nj Ambonisye, and Upright Citizens Brigade performer Vinnie Duyck.

Distributing through Amazon's Prime Video Direct program, audiences throughout the U.S. can now rent or buy the film starting at $2.99.

Reflecting on the values that guide his business in a to-be published manuscript on faith@work, King Husein shares:

"I love President Abraham Lincoln’s statement: “Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality.”

"This summarizes how I strive always to keep my commitments in all aspects of my life. True success comes with preparation, opportunities, hard work, and relying on the Lord. Without a doubt, I know I can accomplish more with the help of God than I can on my own."

"Commitment to my faith has enabled me to establish core principles to guide my business from its inception. These core principles became the foundation upon which I built my company. They are ingrained in the culture of my company. Culture defines my company, and my religion defines me. Not only does my religion defines me, it also sustains me in my business, as I know it does for so many of my employees. Providing a workplace where we can bring our faith with us to work makes for a better workplace and a more successful business!"

King Husein is competing for a Gold, Silver, or Bronze medal, which will be announced and awarded on Aug. 24 virtually at Dare to Overcome.

Dr. Sina Bari Explores the Use of GANs to Predict Pediatric Craniofacial Disorder Outcomes

 Dr. Sina Bari hopes that his advancements in this field will allow plastic surgeons like himself to show parents a glimpse of the results before their children or wards undergo surgery.

Dr. Sina Bari hopes that his advancements in this field will allow plastic surgeons like himself to show parents a glimpse of the results before their children or wards undergo surgery.

Dr. Sina Bar speaks on the Use of GANs to Predict Pediatric Craniofacial Disorder Outcomes

OAKLAND,, CA, USA, July 30, 2021 / — Among the most common human congenital disabilities, pediatric craniofacial disorders are second only to congenital heart diseases, and they present an enormous health challenge and social burden. With Medical AI and Healthcare Technology integrating with Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs), Dr. Sina Bari hopes that his advancements in this field will allow plastic surgeons like himself to show parents a glimpse of the results before their children or wards undergo surgery.

Dr. Sina Bari’s Tech Background in AI and Machine Learning Is a Crucial Part of This Development. Though he would later specialize in plastic surgery, Sina Bari MD had a somewhat tortuous personal journey to this role. From a young age, he fell in love with computer science and first learned to program at eight years of age. He would sit next to his mother, translating her programming texts. Sina Bari went on to work in networking and parallel computing in high school, where he won an award from the National Science Foundation. During his undergraduate and medical school period, he worked in IT to pay his fees.

Upon completing medical school, Dr. Sina Bari was one of three selected participants in Stanford Hospital and Clinics’ accelerated Plastic Surgery residency. Here, he trained with industry leaders to learn advanced techniques in craniofacial surgery, hand surgery, reconstructive surgery and aesthetics.

Having been previously exposed to tech, Sina Bari MD once again connected with his early passion via the bio innovation program at Stanford. He hopes that GANs will help doctors give more accurate depictions of craniofacial procedural results.

How Dr. Sina Bari Aims to Improve Craniofacial Disorder Outcomes Using Advanced AI Techniques. With his experience in computer science and plastic surgery, Dr. Sina Bari has created sophisticated artificial intelligence algorithms to help not only surgeons but also parents visualize plastic surgery outcomes. This breakthrough will allow surgeons to better counsel and guide parents on realistic post-op expectations. Medical AI technology will also help doctors pick the most appropriate treatment route for every pediatric patient. At the same time, it will help patients’ parents better understand potential complications and get a more realistic idea of the potential time frame for recovery.

Helping pediatric patients suffering from craniofacial disorders go on to lead their best lives forms part of the core of what Sina Bari MD is all about. And, with these groundbreaking advancements in medical AI, he hopes to change how plastic surgeons interact with children and create a more rounded understanding of and improve satisfaction with results.

FOHO Coin Exceeds Softcap with 2.2Million USD from Private Placement Investors Pre IEO Launch

FOHO Coin Exceeds Softcap

The IEO was launched on one of the most trusted and largest cryptocurrency exchanges in India, in terms of trading volume.

INDIA, July 30, 2021 / — FOHO Coin is excited to announce that their IEO is now live on the Ascent by Bitbns Launchpad. Bitbns is one of the most trusted and largest cryptocurrency exchanges in India in terms of volume. The IEO was launched on the 27th of July 2021. Prior to the opening of the IEO today, private sales of over 2 million USD have pushed the project beyond the softcap and show strong acceptance and willingness of larger investors to support and participate in the FOHO Ecosystem. The tokens have been moved to FOHO Bitbns Account for distribution. The IEO closes on 3rd August 2021.

Over the last couple of months, FOHO Coin has been steadily building their network and working towards revolutionizing the crypto-real estate space. FOHO is launching shortly one of the first blockchain-enabled fractional ownership and usage platforms for international real estate. With pilot geographies of India, Sri Lanka and Canada, FOHO expects to bring a wide spectrum of properties including residential, vacation rentals, commercial, plantations and agricultural assets to investors thus providing a low risk, low ticket size route to benefit from the steady growth and appreciation in the value of hard assets. The launch of the FOHO Coin IEO is the first step of unveiling the FOHO Ecosystem and the beginning of the Democratization of Real Estate.

FOHO is founded by a dynamic duo – Vijay Thomas and Roshan Dsilva, and supported by a stellar advisory team that includes Bitbns Consultant – Chandan Kumar, Blockchain Industry Expert – Jason Fernandes and Award-winning Marketer – Floyd Tavares. FOHO is also backed by Tangentia and Tripvillas, two giants in the technology and real estate space respectively. In a short span of time, FOHO Coin has received accolades from many leading publications, and has also been rated “Top #1 IEO to look out for in 2021” by a well-known magazine.

“We are thankful for the continued support and shared vision for FOHO. We have now begun recruiting multiple participants in the ecosystem to join the platform – Realtors, Developers, Mortgage Lenders, Investors, Hoteliers, Vacation Rental Managers and those with deep expertise in management of Agricultural Assets. We are also committed to providing the best experience on our platform which will launch shortly and will simplify the process of investing in high-quality income-producing real estate.” says Roshan Dsilva, Founder of FOHO Coin.

Vijay Thomas, Founder of FOHO Coin had this to say on the launch of the IEO, “A huge thank you to all our supporters, who participated via the public IEO as well as via private placement. Your support is a great encouragement to the FOHO team whose hard work and dedication continues to take FOHO Coin forward. We are excited to embark on this journey to democratize real estate usage and investment worldwide with you – our stakeholders and partners. We envision the FOHO Platform to be the global marketplace for fractional real estate like what Robinhood did to stocks.”
