ABSTRACT

of statistical estimation. The method of maximum likelihood

is used to determine the estimates of the parameters. Theory

is developed to allow for estimation without resorting to the

usual "exposure" formulas. Both single and multiple decrement

models are considered. Theoretical results are obtained for

some specific mortality models. Numerical procedures to obtain

the estimates are considered.

SOME INSIGHTS INTO ALLOCATING

Federal Income Ta.xes for a company may be broken down into a Separate Company Tax

for each line of business and a Marriare Tax for the company as a whole.

For allocation purposes, the Federal Income Taxes may be divided into two

parts:

The Separate Company Tax is the tax calculated for each line of business treatin<

the line of business as if it was a separate company in the same tax position* as

the com?any as a whole. The Marriage Tax (positive or negative) is the difference

between the tax for the company as a whole and the sum of the Separate Com?any

Taxes. Therefore,< the main problem in allocating the Federal Income Taxes among

How does each line or business contribute to the overall tax for the company as

a whole? The answer to this question may lie in the All But Method. This method

determines a tax for each line or business by taking the difference between the tax

for the com?anY as a whole and the tax for the same company but which excludes the

Tax may be broken dovn into a Separate Company Tax and a Marriage Tax from the

All But Method. This Marriage Tax for each line of business is the difference

between the All But Tax for that line of business and its Separate Company Tax.

Can the Marriage Tax for the company as a whole be allocated amen~ various

lines of business according to the All But Marriage Taxes? Fact: An allocation

method should have at least two characteristics in common with the thin~ it is

Therefore, allocating the Marriage Tax for the company as a whole among various

lines of business according to the All But Marriage Taxes would appear to be theoreti-

cally plausible. But, this may not be practical because the Marriage Tax for the

approximated by the Separate Company Tax) for any one line of business, causing an

allocated tax which is a vide deviation from the Separate Company Tax.
