First In First Out. FIFO is a method for tracking the value of inventory.

With the use of FIFO, the cost of goods sold is based on the cost of the oldest inventory on record.

For most assets, the oldest inventory is the cheapest.

As a result, the FIFO inventory method causes the lowest value for Cost of Goods Sold, the highest income levels, the highest taxes, and the lowest value for the remaining inventory reported on the balance sheet.
