The Wendt Corporation reported \$30 million of taxable income. Its federal tax rate was 21% (ignore any possible state corporate taxes).

1. What is the company's federal income tax bill for the year? Enter your answer in dollars. For example, an answer of \$1.2 million should be entered as 1,200,000. Round your answer to the nearest dollar.

2. Assume the firm receives an additional \$3 million of interest income from some bonds it owns. What is the additional tax on this interest income? Enter your answer in dollars. For example, an answer of \$1.2 million should be entered as 1,200,000. Round your answer to the nearest dollar.

3. Now assume that Wendt does not receive the interest income but does receive an additional \$3 million as dividends on some stock it owns. Recall that 50% of dividends received are tax exempt. What is the additional tax on this dividend income? Enter your answer in dollars. For example, an answer of \$1.2 million should be entered as 1,200,000. Round your answer to the nearest dollar.

a. Taxable Income = \$30,000,000

Federal Income Tax @21% = \$30,000,000 * 21% = \$6,300,000

Federal Income Tax @21% on additional income = \$3,000,000 * 21% = \$630,000

Less: Dividend received deduction = \$1,500,000

Federal Income Tax @21% on additional income = \$1,500,000 * 21% = \$315,000
