Your company is considering a replacement of an old delivery van with a new one that is more efficient. The old van cost $30,000 when it was purchased 5 years ago. The old van is being depreciated using the simplified straight line method over a useful life of 10 years. The old van could be sold today for $5,000. The new van has an invoice price of $75,000, and it will cost $5,000 to modify the van to carry the company’s products. Cost savings from use of the new van are expected to be $ 22,000 per year for 5 years. At which time the van will be sold for its estimated salvage value of $15,000. The new van will be depreciated using the simplified straight line method over its 5 year useful life. The company’s statutory rate is 35%. Working capital is expected to increase by $3,000 at the inception of the project, but this amount will be recaptured at the end of year five. What is the tax effect of selling the old machine?
