The State of Florida issued $2,000,000 of 12 percent coupon, 20-year semiannual payment, tax-exempt bonds 5 years ago. The bonds had 5 years of call protection, but now the state can call the bonds if it chooses to do so. The call premium would be 5 percent of the face amount. Today 15-year, 5 percent, semiannual payment bonds can be sold at par, but flotation costs on this issue would be 2 percent, or $40,000. What is the net present value of the refunding?
