Three Sections—18 Pages VOL. 81—NO. 10 101 Algona Seniors Will Graduate From 2 Schools Next Week Allen, Ardella Bruns, Mildred Income Tax Men Checking Real Estate, Land Profits While the present trend toward inflated prices on property has brought smiles of satisfac- satisfaction to many, it may come as a shock to know tha.t the U. S. treasury department's internal revenue officers are vitally interested in'such transactions." And it may be a surprise to know that these officers have been checking all transactions on .real estate and other properties. Purpose:.of the checkup is to find out whether such transactions have been reported on income tax returns and whether enough documentary revenue stamps; have been affixed. The checkup is not only for in- come, tax returns for the year 1945 but it goes back several years. In case sellers of property have made a profit but neglected to include such profit in their income tax returns they will be required to do " so. For example, if a man originally-paid $2,000 for a. property, and then 'sells it for $7,500 he has made a profit (capital gain) of $5,500. On this profit he is required to pay an income -tax on $2,700 if he has held the property for-six months.. If he has held it for less than six months, he pays an income tax on the entire $5,500. In other words, the revenue officers are watching for those who have not reported capital gains in their income tax and those who have resold property they have bought and which the original sellers have deeded 'straight across. In such cases, they check both failure to report income tax and failure to pay revenue on the transaction, in the form of revenue stamps. If one'property is sold two or three times without a deed being made, each intervening purchaser must report for .income tax and affix the proper amount trom. ChiriVJoe, TsChetter, Mel Griffin, R. S.
