cogs is sometimes referred to as cost of sales and refers to the production costs for products manufactured and sold or purchased and re-sold by the company. these costs are an expense of the business, and they reduce the revenue the company makes from selling its products.

the $10 cost is deducted from the widget's sale price to determine the gross profit it generates, and the taxes on that profit. the irs allows you to include a variety of costs in this calculation.
