# Depreciation Change of Net Income and Cash Flow

Reported \$9,000 of sales, \$6,000 of operating costs other than depreciation, and \$1,500 of depreciation. The firm had no amortization charges, it had issued \$4,000 of bonds that carry a 7% interest rate, and its federal-plus-state income tax rate was 40%. 2006 data are expected to remain unchanged except for one item, depreciation, which is expected to increase by \$1,000. By how much will the depreciation change cause the firm's net income and net cash flow to change?

Note that the company uses the same depreciation for tax and stockholder reporting.
