Norton Industries needs three heavy-duty trucks that cost $115,000 in total. Saveway Leasing has offered to lease the trucks to Norton for a total of $23,000 per year for each of five years, with the lease payments payable in advance.

The present value of the CCA tax savings = $23,529. Under the terms of the lease, Saveway leasing has agreed to pay the $2,200 annual maintenance costs (before tax, end of year payment).
