Biotech, a medical imaging and modeling company, must purchase a bone cell analysis system for use by a team of bioengineers and mechanical engineers studying bone density in athletes. This particular part of a 3-year contract with the NBA will provide additional gross income of \$100,000 per year. The effective tax rate is 35%.

 Analyzer 1 Analyzer 2 First cost, \$ 150,000 225,000 Operating expenses, \$ per  year 30,000 10,000 MACRS recovery, years 5 5

a. The Biotech president, who is very tax conscious, wishes to use a criterion of minimizing total taxes incurred over the 3 years of the contract. Which analyzer should be purchased?

b. Assume that after 3 years the company will sell the selected analyzer. Using the same total tax criterion, does either analyzer have an advantage? The selling prices are expected to be \$130,000 for analyzer 1 and \$225,000 for analyzer 2.
