#### Homework Answers

Answer #1

=> In this question, the corporate tax = 40%

* Earning per share after the corporate tax is paid = Earning per share before tax is paid * (1 - corporate tax rate)

* EPS after all tax is paid = 10*(1-40%) = 10*0.60 = \$ 6

* That means the the company will distribute \$ 6 per share as dividend

=> John is having 1000 shares and he will get 6*1000 = \$ 6000 as dividend from the company

=> His personal tax rate is 30% and after paying all the taxes he will have an amount

= 6000*(1-30%) [ Income*(1-tax rate)]

= \$ 4200

Therefore the answer is option c. 4200
