NL Group Tax Liability

Example Definitions of "NL Group Tax Liability"
NL Group Tax Liability. For a taxable period, the liability for Federal Taxes and Combined Foreign, State and Local taxes, as applicable, that the NL Group would have had if it were not a member of the VHI Group or Contran Tax Group during such taxable period (or during any taxable period prior thereto including prior periods when the NL Group was part of the consolidated federal income tax group of which NL Industries, Inc., a Delaware corporation, was the common parent ("NL Group") ), and instead filed a separate... consolidated or combined return, as applicable, for such taxable period); provided, however, that for purposes of determining such liability for a taxable period all tax elections shall be consistent with the tax elections made by Contran for such period. In making such tax elections it is understood Contran will make those tax elections which are beneficial to the Contran Tax Group on a consolidated basis. Nevertheless, Contran will use its best efforts in the case of those elections which affect the computation of the NL Group Tax Liability, to make elections in a reasonable manner so as to minimize the NL Group Tax Liability. For purposes of this Agreement, in determining the Combined Foreign, State and Local Taxes for the NL Group, such determination shall be made based on a separate Foreign, State and Local Tax Calculation as if the NL Group were a separate unitary filer with respect to states and other jurisdictions in which Contran is required to file on a unitary or combined basis.
