During its current tax year (year one) a pharmaceutical company purchased a mixing tank that had a fair market price of $120,000. It replaced the an older, smaller mixing tank that had a BV of $15,000. Because a special promotion was underway, the old tank was used as a trade-in for the new one, and the cash price (including delivery and installation) was set at $99,500. It was assumed that the new mixing tank has a useful life of 9 years.

A. What is the depreciation cost in year three and BV at the end of year four of the new mixing tank? Use (a) SLM (b) SYDM and (c) Sinking Fund if i = 7%.

B. If Declining Balance depreciation has been applied on this problem, what would be the cumulative depreciation through the end of year four?
