by Suraj Srinivasan and Amy Kaser


Mike Mayo takes on Citigroup (B) is a supplementary exercise to go along with Mike Mayo takes on Citigroup (A) case and is designed to give students an opportunity to understand the creation of deferred tax liabilities (DTLs) and the life cycle of a DTL using an example based on the difference between Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS) depreciation which is allowed for tax purposes, and straight line depreciation which is typically the method used for financial statements.
