Working on Aswath's Fall 2009 Quiz 2...problem 1 in year 3...why is tax only 40? 40% tax on 150 EBIT is 60. With NOL for year 3 being 50 and Reinvestment being 50, why not just make the tax amount 50 to eliminate the NOL?

    The NOL is used to reduce your taxable income from 150 to 100. You then pay 40% of the taxable income, which gives you 40 as taxes. I am not sure where you are getting 50.. and why that would eliminate the NOL.
