      Depends on the particular situation. LIFO means that most recent stock will be sold/used so it also depends if the cost of the stock is rising (usually the case) or falling. So in the case of LIFO, higher sold inventory cost means that compared to FIFO, profits are lower, assets (remaining stock) are lower, and taxes are also lower (because profits are lower).
