  1. Meyer Retirement (Again) Company (MTC) is evaluating the merits of leasing versus purchasing a truck with a 4-year life that costs $80,000 and falls into the MACRS 3-year class. If the firm borrows and buys the truck, the loan rate would be 8%, and the loan would be amortized over the truck’s 4-year life, so the interest expense for taxes would decline over time. The loan payments would be made at the end of each year. The truck will be used for 4 years, at the end of which time it will be sold at an estimated residual value of $25,000. If MTC buys the truck, it would purchase a maintenance contract that costs $1,500 per year, payable at the beginning of each year. The lease terms, which include maintenance, call for a $19,000 lease payment (4 payments total) at the beginning of each year. MTC’s tax rate is 21%. What is the net advantage to leasing? (Note: Assume MACRS rates for Years 1 to 4 are 0.3333, 0.4445, 0.15, and 0.07 respectively and round all dollar to the nearest whole number.)
