WesternGear.com is expected to have operating losses of $250,000 n its first year of business and $150,000 in its second year. However, the company expects to have income before taxes of $300,000 in its third year and $450,000 in its fourth year. The company’s required rate of return is 12 percent.

Assume a tax rate of 40 percent and that current loss can be used to offset taxable income in future years. What is the present value of tax savings related to the operating losses in years 1 and 2?

(Round present value factor calculations to 4 decimal places e.g. 0.2525. Round all other calculations and final answer to 0 decimal places, e.g. 5,252.)
