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 effective tax rate is t = 50%
? The after-tax, actual dollar MARR is ic = 10%.
