You are thinking about abandoning your business. If you do, then you will receive $168,000 on an after-tax basis from the land associated with your business. Abandoning your business would bring $15,000 on an after-tax basis from sale of equipment; also, you would not have to repair equipment at a cost of $10,800 per year on an after-tax basis. The before-tax cash flows from your business are $60,000 per year. Your tax rate is 25% and your required return is 12%. If you abandon your business, you will be able to spend your time earning wages that are equivalent to receiving an annuity of $16,000 per year on an after-tax basis until you retire in 12 years. At that time you could sell your land but would only realize what you could receive today. Should you abandon your business if you can make more money doing that? A. Yes.
