You are considering two mutually exclusive alternatives to perform a specific task. Machine A costs $150,000 and machine B costs $200,000. The first year costs for A are $1,000 and $500 for B. These costs are expected to rise at a rate of 10% per year for the 10 year study period. Both machines qualify as 5 year MACRS (GDS) property. The company's effective tax rate is 50%. Using incremental analysis and after tax analysis, which alternative would you recommend based on the after tax IRR.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 9, 2019, 11:06 pm ad1c9bdddf
