Lose the tax benefit of debt.

A firm losses the tax benefit of debt when it cannot reduce taxable income with interest on debt.This can happen if a firm has losses in operations ( and thus has no income to reduce with the interest deduction). In the U.S. this situation is unlikely because firms can carry losses forward or backward against future or past income.
