• The cost of the land to Rigdon is $60,000.
• The fair value is $78,431.39.
• The lessor incurs no material initial direct costs.
• The collectibility of the rentals is reasonably assured, and there are no important uncertainties surrounding the amount of unreimbursable costs yet to be incurred by the lessor.
Required:

2. Why are the final two criteria (lease term 75% of economic life and present value of lease payments 90% of fair value) not applicable when classifying a lease of land?
