FORM OF
TAX SHARING AGREEMENT


This Tax Sharing Agreement (the "Agreement"), dated as of this 12th day November, 1996, and effective for consolidated federal income tax returns filed after June 30, 1996, is entered into by and among The Allstate Corporation ("Parent") and the undersigned corporations, as includible corporations in the affiliated group (the "Allstate Group") of which Parent is the common parent (as such terms are used or defined in section 1504 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (the "Code")).


WHEREAS the Allstate Group has filed a consolidated federal income tax return for the taxable year ended December 31, 1995 and intends to continue filing consolidated federal income tax returns in subsequent years; and


WHEREAS the parties hereto desire to enter into this agreement to fairly allocate among themselves the federal tax liabilities, credits, refunds, benefits, and similar items related to the consolidated federal income tax return for the taxable year ended December 31, 1995 and subsequent years;


NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of their mutual promises, the parties agree as follows:


ARTICLE I - REGULAR TAX


1.1 Subject to the adjustments provided in section 1.2 of this Agreement, the regular federal income tax liability of each member shall be determined pursuant to the principles used to determine earnings and profits under section 1552(a)(2) of the Code and Treasury Regulation section 1.1502-33(d)(3) using a fixed percentage of one hundred. Accordingly, each member shall, subject to the adjustments in section 1.2, generally be liable for the amount of tax it would ordinarily pay on a separate return basis.


1.2 In determining the separate return tax liability of each member for purposes of this Article, only the regular tax liability (without regard to the alternative minimum tax or alternative minimum tax credits) shall be taken into account. Additionally, items of income, deductions, credits and other similar items that may be limited or recharacterized on a consolidated basis (e.g., foreign tax credits, charitable contributions, section 1231 gains, etc.) shall be included in the determination of separate return liability as so limited or recharacterized. For purposes of this determination, any item that is limited on a consolidated basis shall be allocated to each member according to the ratio of (i) the amount of such item

generated by a member to (ii) the total amount of such items generated by the Allstate Group.


ARTICLE II - ALTERNATIVE MINIMUM TAX


2.1 If the Allstate Group has an alternative minimum tax ("AMT") liability for any year, such liability shall be allocated to each member according to the ratio of (i) the excess of any member's separate return tentative minimum tax for the year (whether such amount is positive or negative) over the member's separate return regular tax for such year (whether such amount is positive or negative) to (ii) the sum of such excess amounts for all members of the group. In determining each member's tentative minimum tax and regular tax, the adjustments provided in section 1.2 of this Agreement shall be made.


2.2 AMT credits originating in a tax year shall be allocated to each member according to the amount of AMT liability allocated for such year. Utilization of such credits shall be determined on a FIFO basis (i.e., AMT credits from the earliest available year shall be deemed utilized before credits from a later year are utilized). If only part of the amount of AMT paid for any year is utilized as a credit, such amount shall be allocated to the members in proportion to the amounts of AMT liability allocated to members for such year.


ARTICLE III - OTHER TAXES AND CREDITS


Other taxes (e.g., the environmental tax), credits (e.g., the foreign tax credit or the general business credit) or similar items paid, incurred or received by the Allstate Group shall be allocated to each member according to the ratio of the amount of any such item generated by the member on a separate return basis to the total of such item generated on a separate return basis by all members of the Allstate Group.


ARTICLE IV - TAX RETURN ADJUSTMENTS


4.1 As agent for the Allstate Group, Parent shall have the right to control in its sole discretion any audit of returns filed by the Group. However, Parent shall, in its reasonable discretion, permit any member that might have a liability or refund as a result of an adjustment to participate in the proceedings relating to such issue. In the event any member of the group wishes to amend its portion of any filed return, Parent shall have discretion, taking into account the consequences to the entire group, to file an amended return, to present the adjustments to be included on such amended return at the audit of the consolidated return to which the adjustments relate, or to take any other reasonable action.


2


4.2 In the event of adjustments to taxes (as a result of audits, filing of amended returns, carrybacks, or other similar items), allocations under this Agreement shall be redetermined as if the adjustments were included in the returns as originally filed. Interest or penalties related to such adjustments shall be allocated to the member which generated the adjustment.


4.3 In the event an adverse adjustment with respect to income or items of one member is offset by a favorable adjustment for another member, thereby resulting in either a smaller deficiency for the Allstate Group or smaller refund for the group, the member with the adverse adjustment shall pay interest at the overpayment rate specified in section 6621(a)(1) to the member with the favorable adjustment to compensate the member with the favorable adjustment for interest not received from the Government as a result of the adverse adjustment.


4.4(a) Any member may make a deposit or payment of any tax liability to stop the running of interest by paying such amount to Parent and providing written d
