Recurring item exception to the all events test. This ruling clarifies the treatment of certain liabilities under the recurring item exception to the economic performance requirement under section 461(h)(3) of the Code. It also addresses the application of the “not material” and “better matching” requirement of the recurring item exception in the context of a lease and a service contract each having a term of one year. The ruling distinguishes contracts for the provision of services from insurance and warranty contracts and applies the recurring item exception differently. Rev. Proc. 2011-14 modified and amplified.
