    Determine how much of the amount paid to corporation D for advertising and promotional services can D lawn and Garden Supply deduct in 2019

    (200 lawn x $15) receives $3,000 for advertising and promotion from D lawn and Garden Supply; however corporation D spent only $2,750

    Thus D lawn and Garden Supply can only deduct $2750 because economic performance for services occur when the services are provided to the taxpayer.
