MM Proposition I with corporate taxes states that capital structure can affect firm value by an amount that is equal to the present value of the interest tax shield. by raising the debt-to-equity ratio, the firm can lower its taxes and thereby increase its total value.

firm value is maximized by using an all-equity capital structure. The Bond Market Association estimates that U.S. corporations had more than $ trillion in bonds outstanding at the end ofwith debt averaging about 50 percent of equity (the value of the stock) from through Thus, corporations depend heavily on debt financing.

• If the benefits exactly offset the costs, debt will not affect value. –Interest payments received from debt are taxed as income. –Equity investors also must pay taxes on dividends and capital gains.

•Personal taxes reduce the cash flows to investors and can offset some of the corporate tax benefits of leverage. Personal Taxes. Company owners may prefer using debt because selling stock reduces their ownership control over the firm.

Given a tax advantage to debt, firms should use lots of debt. In the M&M set upwith corporate taxes and interest deductibility (but with no other “market imperfections”), a firm should use % debt.
