D + VE D + VE Instead, we have: WACC = VE D · kD + · kE , D + VE D + VE with kD , kE , and VE all non-linear functions of the tax rate. This, again, is because r is endogenous and is a function of the firm’s tax shields. 22 The Marginal Effects of Borrowing on Firm Risk and the WACC The prevailing view is that with corporate taxes (and no bankruptcy costs), increasing debt lowers firm risk (the risk of D + E, βD+E ).
