Remington Inc. purchases a machine that costs $700,000 and has an estimated useful life of 10 years, a MACRS property class 7 and an estimated salvage value of $75,000 after 10 years. It was financed using a $200,000 down payment and a loan of $500,000 over a period of 5 years with interest at 5%. Loan payments are made in equal amounts (principals plus interest) over the 5 years.
(a) What is the amount of MACRS-Class 7 depreciation taken in the third year?
(b) What is the book value at the end of the third year?
(c) Returning to the original situation, what is the amount of the MACRS-Class 7 depreciation taken in the third year if the machine is also sold during the third year?
