8.3.3
Payment
 
(a)           Owner’s indemnity obligation to a Tax Indemnitee under this Section 8.3 shall equal the amount which, after taking into account any Tax imposed upon the receipt or accrual of the amounts payable under this Section 8.3 and any tax benefits actually recognized by such Tax Indemnitee as a result of the indemnifiable Tax (including, without limitation, any benefits recognized as a result of an indemnifiable Tax being utilized by such Tax Indemnitee as a credit against Taxes not indemnifiable under this Section 8.3), shall equal the amount of the Tax indemnifiable under this Section 8.3.
 
(b)           At Owner’s request, the computation of the amount of any indemnity payment owed by Owner or any amount owed by a Tax Indemnitee to Owner pursuant to this Section 8.3 shall be verified and certified by an independent public accounting firm selected by such Tax Indemnitee and reasonably satisfactory to Owner.  Such verification shall be binding.  The costs of such

 
Page 37


 
verification (including the fee of such public accounting firm) shall be borne by Owner unless such verification shall result in an adjustment in Owner’s favor of 5% or more of the net present value of the payment as computed by such Tax Indemnitee, in which case the costs shall be paid by such Tax Indemnitee.
 
(c)           Each Tax Indemnitee shall provide Owner with such certifications, information and documentation as shall be in such Tax Indemnitee’s possession and as shall be reasonably requested by Owner to minimize any indemnity payment pursuant to this Section 8.3; provided, that notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, no Tax Indemnitee shall be required to provide Owner with any Tax returns.
 
(d)           Each Tax Indemnitee shall promptly forward to Owner any written notice, bill or advice received by it from any Taxing Authority concerning any Tax for which it seeks indemnification under this Section 8.3.  Owner shall pay any amount for which it is liable pursuant to this Section 8.3 directly to the appropriate Taxing Authority if legally permissible or upon demand of a Tax Indemnitee, to such Tax Indemnitee within 30 days of such demand (or, if a contest occurs in accordance with Section 8.3.4, within 30 days after a Final Determination (as defined below)), but in no event more than one Business Day prior to the date the Tax to which such amount payable hereunder relates is due.  If requested by a Tax Indemnitee in writing, Owner shall furnish to the appropriate Tax Indemnitee the original or a certified copy of a receipt for Owner’s payment of any Tax paid by Owner or such other evidence of payment of such Tax as is acceptable to such Tax Indemnitee.  Owner shall also furnish promptly upon written request such data as any Tax Indemnitee may reasonably require to enable such Tax Indemnitee to comply with the requirements of any taxing jurisdiction unless such data is not reasonably available to Owner or, unless such data is specifically requested by a Taxing Authority, is not customarily furnished by domestic air carriers under similar circumstances.  For purposes of this Section 8.3, a "Final Determination" shall mean (i) a decision, judgment, decree or other order by any court of competent jurisdiction that occurs pursuant to the provisions of Section 8.3.4, which decision, judgment, decree or other order has become final and unappealable, (ii) a closing agreement or  settlement agreement entered into in accordance with Section 8.3.4 that has become binding and is not subject to further review or appeal (absent fraud, misrepresentation, etc.), or (iii) the termination of administrative proceedings and the expiration of the time for instituting a claim in a court proceeding.

 
Page 38


 
(e)           If any Tax Indemnitee shall actually realize a tax savings by reason of any Tax paid or indemnified by Owner pursuant to this Section 8.3 (whether such tax savings shall be by means of a foreign tax credit, depreciation or cost recovery deduction or otherwise) and such savings is not otherwise taken into account in computing such payment or indemnity such Tax Indemnitee shall pay to Owner an amount equal to the lesser of (i) the amount of such tax savings, plus any additional tax savings recognized as the result of any payment made pursuant to this sentence, when, as, if, and to the extent, realized or (ii) the amount of all payments pursuant to this Section 8.3 by Owner to such Tax Indemnitee (less any payments previously made by such Tax Indemnitee to Owner pursuant to this Section 8.3.3 (e)) (and the excess, if any, of the amount described in clause (i) over the amount described in clause (ii) shall be carried forward and applied to reduce pro tanto any subsequent obligations of Owner to make payments to such Tax Indemnitee pursuant to this Section 8.3); provided, that such Tax Indemnitee shall not be required to make any payment pursuant to this sentence so long as a Lease Event of Default of a monetary nature has occurred and is continuing.  If a tax benefit is later disallowed or denied, the disallowance or denial shall be treated as a Tax indemnifiable under Section 8.3.1 without regard to the provisions of Section 8.3.2 (other than Section 8.3.2 (f)).  Each such Tax Indemnitee shall in good faith use reasonable efforts in filing its tax returns and in dealing with Taxing Authorities to seek and claim any such tax benefit.
 
 
8.3.4
Contest
 
(a)           If a written claim is made against a Tax Indemnitee for Taxes with respect to which Owner could be liable for payment or indemnity hereunder, or if a Tax Indemnitee makes a determination that a Tax is due for which Owner could have an indemnity obligation hereunder, such Tax Indemnitee shall promptly give Owner notice in writing of such claim (provided, that failure to so notify Owner shall not relieve Owner of its indemnity obligations hereunder unless such failure to notify effectively forecloses Owner’s rights to require a contest of such claim) and shall take no action with respect to such claim without the prior written consent of Owner for 30 days following the receipt of such notice by Owner; provided, that, in the case of a claim made against a Tax Indemnitee, if such Tax Indemnitee shall be required by law to take action prior to the end of such 30-day period, such Tax Indemnitee shall, in such notice to Owner, so inform Owner, and such Tax Indemnitee shall take no action for as long as it is legally able to do so (it being

 
Page 39


 
understood that a Tax Indemnitee shall be entitled to pay the Tax claimed and sue for a refund prior to the end of such 30-day period if (i)(A) the failure to so pay the Tax would result in substantial penalties (unless immediately reimbursed by Owner) and the act of paying the Tax would not materially prejudice the right to contest or (B) the failure to so pay would result in criminal penalties and (ii) such Tax Indemnitee shall take any action so required in connection with so paying the Tax in a manner that is the least prejudicial to the pursuit of the contest).  In addition, such Tax Indemnitee shall (provided, that Owner shall have agreed to keep such information confidential other than to the extent necessary in order to contest the claim) furnish Owner with copies of any requests for information from any Taxing Authority relating to such Taxes with respect to which Owner may be required to indemnify hereunder.  If requested by Owner in writing within 30 days after its receipt of such notice, such Tax Indemnitee shall, at the expense of Owner (including, without limitation, all reasonable costs, expenses and reasonable attorneys’ and accountants’ fees and disbursements), in good faith contest (or, if permitted by applicable law, allow Owner to contest) through appropriate administrative and judicial proceedings the validity, applicability or amount of such Taxes by (I) resisting payment thereof, (II) not paying the same except under protest if protest is necessary and proper or (III) if the payment is made, using reasonable efforts to obtain a refund thereof in an appropriate administrative and/or judicial proceeding.  If requested to do so by Owner, the Tax Indemnitee shall appeal any adverse administrative or judicial decision, except that the Tax Indemnitee shall not be required to pursue any appeals to the United States Supreme Court.  If and to the extent the Tax Indemnitee is able to separate the contested issue or issues from other issues arising in the same administrative or judicial proceeding that are unrelated to the transactions contemplated by the Operative Agreements without, in the good faith judgment of such Tax Indemnitee, adversely affecting such Tax Indemnitee, such Tax Indemnitee shall permit Owner to control the conduct of any such proceeding and shall provide to Owner (at Owner’s cost and expense) with such information or data that is in such Tax Indemnitee’s control or possession that is reasonably necessary to conduct such contest. In the case of a contest controlled by a Tax Indemnitee, such Tax Indemnitee shall consult with Owner in good faith regarding the manner of contesting such claim and shall keep Owner reasonably informed regarding the progress of such contest. A Tax Indemnitee shall not fail to take any action expressly required by this Section 8.3.4 (including, without limitation, any action regarding any appeal of an adverse

 
Page 40


 
determination with respect to any claim) or settle or compromise any claim without the prior written consent of the Owner (except as contemplated by Section 8.3.4(b) or (c)).
 
(b)           Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event shall a Tax Indemnitee be required to pursue any contest (or to permit Owner to pursue any contest) unless (i) Owner shall have agreed to pay such Tax Indemnitee on demand all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by such Tax Indemnitee in connection with contesting such Taxes, including, without limitation, all reasonable out of pocket costs and expenses and reasonable attorneys’ and accountants’ fees and disbursements, (ii) if such contest shall involve the payment of the claim, Owner shall advance the amount thereof (to the extent indemnified hereunder) plus interest, penalties and additions to tax with respect thereto that are required to be paid prior to the commencement of such contest on an interest-free after-Tax basis to such Tax Indemnitee (and such Tax Indemnitee shall promptly pay to the Owner any net realized tax benefits resulting from such advance including any tax benefits resulting from making such payment), (iii) such Tax Indemnitee shall have reasonably determined that the action to be taken will not result in any material risk of forfeiture, sale or loss of the Aircraft (unless Owner shall have made provisions to protect the interests of any such Tax Indemnitee in a manner reasonably satisfactory to such Tax Indemnitee) (provided, that such Tax Indemnitee agrees to notify Owner in writing promptly after it becomes aware of any such risk), (iv) no Lease Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing unless Owner has provided security for its obligations hereunder by advancing to such Tax Indemnitee before proceeding or continuing with such contest, the amount of the Tax being contested, plus any interest and penalties and an amount estimated in good faith by such Tax Indemnitee for expenses, and (v) prior to commencing any judicial action controlled by Owner, Owner shall have acknowledged its liability for such claim hereunder, provided that Owner shall not be bound by its acknowledgment if the Final Determination articulates conclusions of law and fact that demonstrate that Owner has no liability for the contested amounts hereunder.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any Tax Indemnitee shall release, waive, compromise or settle any claim which may be indemnifiable by Owner pursuant to this Section 8.3 without the written permission of Owner, Owner’s obligation to indemnify such Tax Indemnitee with respect to such claim (and all directly related claims and claims based on the outcome of such claim) shall terminate, subject to Section 8.3.4(c), and subject to Section 8.3.4(c), such Tax Indemnitee shall repay to Owner any amount

 
Page 41


 
previously paid or advanced to such Tax Indemnitee with respect to such claim, plus interest at the rate that would have been payable by the relevant Taxing Authority with respect to a refund of such Tax.
 
(c)           Notwithstanding anything contained in this Section 8.3, a Tax Indemnitee will not be required to contest the imposition of any Tax and shall be permitted to settle or compromise any claim without Owner’s consent if such Tax Indemnitee (i) shall waive its right to indemnity under this Section 8.3 with respect to such Tax (and any directly related claim and any claim the outcome of which is determined based upon the outcome of such claim), (ii) shall pay to Owner any amount previously paid or advanced by Owner pursuant to this Section 8.3 with respect to such Tax, plus interest at the rate that would have been payable by the relevant Taxing Authority with respect to a refund of such Tax, and (iii) shall agree to discuss with Owner the views or positions of any relevant Taxing Authority with respect to the imposition of such Tax.
 
 
8.3.5
Refund
 
If any Tax Indemnitee shall receive a refund of, or be entitled to a credit against other liability for, all or any part of any Taxes paid, reimbursed or advanced by Owner, such Tax Indemnitee shall pay to Owner within 30 days of such receipt  an amount equal to the lesser of (a) the amount of such refund or credit plus any net tax benefit (taking into account any Taxes incurred by such Tax Indemnitee by reason of the receipt of such refund or realization of such credit) actually realized by such Tax Indemnitee as a result of any payment by such Tax Indemnitee made pursuant to this sentence (including this clause (a)) and (b) such tax payment, reimbursement or advance by Owner to such Tax Indemnitee theretofore made pursuant to this Section 8.3 (and the excess, if any, of the amount described in clause (a) over the amount described in clause (b) shall be carried forward and applied to reduce pro tanto any subsequent obligation of Owner to make payments to such Tax Indemnitee pursuant to this Section 8.3).  If, in addition to such refund or credit, such Tax Indemnitee shall receive (or be credited with) an amount representing interest on the amount of such refund or credit, such Tax Indemnitee shall pay to Owner within 30 days of such receipt or realization of such credit that proportion of such interest that shall be fairly attributable to Taxes paid, reimbursed or advanced by Owner prior to the receipt of such refund or realization of such credit.

 
Page 42


 
 
8.3.6
Tax Filing
 
If any report, return or statement is required to be filed with respect to any Tax which is subject to indemnification under this Section 8.3, Owner shall timely file the same (except for any such report, return or statement which a Tax Indemnitee has timely notified the Owner in writing that such Tax Indemnitee intends to file, or for which such Tax Indemnitee is required by law to file, in its own name); provided, that the relevant Tax Indemnitee shall furnish Owner with any information in such Tax Indemnitee’s possession or control that is reasonably necessary to file any such return, report or statement and is reasonably requested in writing by Owner (it being understood that the Tax Indemnitee shall not be required to furnish copies of its actual tax returns, although it may be required to furnish relevant information contained therein).  Owner shall either file such report, return or statement and send a copy of such report, return or statement to such Tax Indemnitee, or, where Owner is not permitted to file such report, return or statement, it shall notify such Tax Indemnitee of such requirement and prepare and deliver such report, return or statement to such Tax Indemnitee in a manner satisfactory to such Tax Indemnitee within a reasonable time prior to the time such report, return or statement is to be filed.
 
 
8.3.7
Forms
 
Each Tax Indemnitee agrees to furnish from time to time to Owner or Mortgagee or to such other person as Owner or Mortgagee may designate, at Owner’s or Mortgagee’s request, such duly executed and properly completed forms as may be necessary or appropriate in order to claim any reduction of or exemption from any withholding or other Tax imposed by any Taxing Authority, if (x) such reduction or exemption is available to such Tax Indemnitee and (y) Owner has provided such Tax Indemnitee with any information necessary to complete such form not otherwise reasonably available to such Tax Indemnitee.
 
 
8.3.8
Non-Parties
 
If a Tax Indemnitee is not a party to this Agreement, Owner may require the Tax Indemnitee to agree in writing, in a form reasonably acceptable to Owner, to the terms of this Section 8.3 and Section 15.8 prior to making any payment to such Tax Indemnitee under this Section 8.3.

 
Page 43


 
 
8.3.9
Subrogation
 
Upon payment of any Tax by Owner pursuant to this Section 8.3 to or on behalf of a Tax Indemnitee, Owner, without any further action, shall be subrogated to any claims that such Tax Indemnitee may have relating thereto.  Such Tax Indemnitee shall cooperate with Owner (to the extent such cooperation does not result in any unreimbursed cost, expense or liability to such Tax Indemnitee) to permit Owner to pursue such claims.
 
 
Payments
 
Any payments made pursuant to Section 8.1 or 8.3 shall be due on the 60th day after demand therefor and shall be made directly to the relevant Indemnitee or Tax Indemnitee or to Owner, in immediately available funds at such bank or to such account as specified by such Indemnitee or Tax Indemnitee or Owner, as the case may be, in written directives to the payor, or, if no such direction shall have been given, by check of the payor payable to the order of, and mailed to, such Indemnitee or Tax Indemnitee or Owner, as the case may be, by certified mail, postage prepaid, at its address as set forth in this Agreement.
 
 
Interest
 
If any amount, payable by Owner, any Indemnitee or any Tax Indemnitee under Section 8.1 or 8.3 is not paid when due, the person obligated to make such payment shall pay on demand, to the extent permitted by Law, to the person entitled thereto, interest on any such amount for the period from and including the due date for such amount to but excluding the date the same is paid, at the Payment Due Rate.  Such interest shall be paid in the same manner as the unpaid amount in respect of which such interest is due.
 
 
Benefit of Indemnities
 
The obligations of Owner in respect of all indemnities, obligations, adjustments and payments in Section 8.1 or 8.3 are expressly made for the benefit of, and shall be enforceable by, the Indemnitee or Tax Indemnitee entitled thereto, notwithstanding any provision of the Trust Indenture.
