||The effective combined tax rate in an owner-managed is 40%. An outlay of $20,000 for certain new assets is under consideration. It is estimated that for the next 8 years, these assets will be responsible for annual receipts of $9000 and annual disbursements (other than for income taxes) of $4000. Meter this time, they will be used only for stand-by purposes, and no future excess of receipts over disbursements is estimated. (a) What is the prospective rate of return before income taxes?
