(1) "Original cost" of property which has a basis other than zero for federal income tax purposes equals the basis of the property for federal income tax purposes at the time of acquisition by the taxpayer and adjusted by subsequent capital additions or improvements thereto and partial disposition thereof, by reason of sale, exchange, abandonment, or any other type of disposition.
(2) "Original cost" of property which has a zero basis for federal income tax purposes shall equal the taxpayer's actual cost of the property at the time of acquisition; provided, however, if the actual cost is unknown, the "original cost" shall equal the fair market value of the property, or, at the option of the taxpayer, eight times the net annual rental rate as described in G.S. 105-130.4(j)(2). The valuation method chosen by the taxpayer must be used consistently thereafter.
(b) Inventory of stock of goods shall be included in the factor in accordance with the valuation method used for federal income tax purposes.
