After-tax cash flow

A Church wants to purchase a GMC Van for \$12,000 in Year 0. It will provide income of \$6000 real dollars (R\$) every year for Years 1 and 2. At the end of Year 2, it will be sold at a market value of \$3500 real dollars (R\$ in Yr 0 dollars). Also,
? The GMC Van is depreciated by the straight-line method with a depreciable life of 6 years (assume zero salvage = 0 and ignore the half-year convention for depreciation calculation).
? The inflation rate is f = 3%
? The effective tax rate is t = 50%
? The after-tax, actual dollar MARR is ic = 10%.
