2.6 In its most recent financial statements, Newhouse Inc. reported \$50 million of net income and \$810 million of retained earnings. The previous retained earnings were \$780 million. How much in dividends was paid to shareholders during the year?
New Balance retained earning = Previous Balance retained earning + net income – Dividend paid
Dividend paid = Previous Balance retained earning + net income - New Balance retained earning
Dividend = \$780 million + \$50 million - \$810 million
= \$830 million - \$810 million
= \$20 million

2.7 The Talley Corporation had a taxable income of \$365,000 from operations after all operating costs but before (1) interest charges of \$50,000, (2) dividends received of \$15,000, (3) dividends paid of \$25,000, and (4) income taxes.
a) What are the firm’s income tax liability and its after-tax income?
b) What are the company’s marginal and average tax rates on taxable income?

For a corporation, 70% of dividends received are excluded from taxes; so taxable dividends are calculated with the remained 30% (page 72 of the book).

Company’s Tax Liability:
Taxable operating income \$ 365,000
Taxable interest (\$ 50,000)
15000*(1 – 0.70)
Total taxable income\$ 319,500

The marginal rate for this company is 39% (this information is in the corporate tax rate table in page 71)
The non-taxable dividends are: \$15,000 * 0.7 = \$ 10,500
The tax is:
Tax Liability =\$ 22,250 + (319,500 – 100,000)*0.39 = \$ 107,855
After Tax-income:
Taxable income \$ 319,500
Taxable (\$ 107855)
Non-taxable dividend
