Hi Kartik

Tax Burden Ratio = Net Income/Earnings Before Taxes

Net Income is measured after taxes. So if taxes are zero the tax burden equals one and so the lower this number, the higher the tax burden.
Similarly, if Interest Expense is zero then interest burden ratio equals one and therefore the higher the financial leverage, the lower is this number.
