Answer #1

**Answer
1.**

Corporation tax = (1,20,000*21%) = 25,200

Salary tax = (1,00,000*37%) = $37,000

Income tax = (1,20,000*21%) +
(1,00,000*37%) **= $62,200**

**Answer
2.**

Corporation tax = (1,20,000*21%) = 25,200

Salary tax = (1,00,000*37%) = $37,000

Dividend tax = (1,20,000 - 25,200)*24% = $22,752

Income tax = 25,200 + 37,000 +
22,752 **= $84,952**

3.**
