**6.Question:**

**You must evaluate a proposal to buy a new milling machine. The base price is $108,000, and shipping and installation costs would add another $12,500. The machine falls into the MACRS 3-year class, and it would be sold after 3 years for $65,000. The applicable depreciation rates are 33, 45, 15 and 7 percent as discussed in Appendix 12A of your text book. The machine would require a $5,500 increase in working capital (increased inventory less increased accounts payable). There would be no effect on revenues, but pre-tax labor costs would decline by $44,000 per year. The marginal tax rate is 35 percent, and the WACC is 12 percent. Also, the firm spent $5,000 last year investigating the feasibility of using the machine.**

**How should the $5,000 spent last year be handled?**
