Also, while tank cars will last? indefinitely, they will be depreciated? straight-line over a? five-year life for tax purposes. Suppose? Mersey's tax rate is 40%.

When evaluating the proposed? expansion, what incremental free cash flows should be included to account for the need to accelerate the purchase of the tank? cars?

Incremental FCF for year 0 is ?$? million. ? (Round to two decimal places and outflows as negative? values.)
Incremental FCF for year 1 is ?$?million. ? (Round to two decimal places and outflows as negative? values.)
Incremental FCF for year 2 is?$? million. ? (Round to two decimal places and outflows as negative? values.)
Incremental FCF for year 3 is ?$? million. ? (Round to two decimal places and outflows as negative? values.)
Incremental FCF for year 4 is ?$? million. ? (Round to two decimal places and outflows as negative? values.)
