Ricardo expects his taxable income to vacillate over the next several years, and his ability to claim the remaining charitable contribution deduction in those years is uncertain. Assume that Ricardo is in the 39.6%, 25%, and 15% tax brackets in the year of contribution, the third year following the contribution, and the fifth year following the contribution, respectively.

Assume a 6% discount rate. The present value factors, at a 6% discount rate, are as follows: Year 1: 1.000, Year 3: 0.8396, Year 5: 0.7473.

Compute the present value of the tax savings from the charitable contribution if \$177,500 is deducted in the year of the contribution and \$71,000 is deducted three years following the contribution (when Ricardo expects to be in the 25% rate bracket).

\$.
