April 11. 136o liuiiiiiiimHiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiMiiiiiiiiiiHiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiMiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiniin fNAflfJir rlhlt furtri The Gals In Tax Line Led Women Control Money By LYNN CAKLSOV Women are outnumbering men In one of the few remaining male tanctuariei the office of the Internal Revenue Bureau. Joseph M. Hofmann, district director'! representative In Rochester, reports that substantially more women call or come into the State Street office than men, The reaioni, tayi Hofmann, are that nirn work and womrn can find more time to stop in and that In many households it's the woman who controls the purne strings. The majority of questions the women have on their minds concern itemizing deductions. )fS JjS jfc MOST PERPLEXING IS THE NEW YORK State sales tax deduction. The three per cent Monroe county sales tax was in effect for the entire year of 1965. The two per cent State sales tax went into effect last August, so there was a five per cent sales tax for five months. However, in the New York State instruction book a sales tax table is given only for the two per cent sales tax. Both sales taxes are deductible and the Internal Revenue office has a tax table incorporating the Monroe county tax and the state tax, commensurate with income and exemptions. Another common question of womra visitors rnnt-rrni college students at dependents. Hofmann dears up the Issue this way: As long as the student Is in an accredited school for five months of the year, he can be claimed as a dependent of the parents, provided the parents provide more than one-half of his support no matter how much he makes. If the college student earns over $600, he must file also. It is not required by law for him to file if he makes under $600; however, he must file to receive a refund of his witheld taxes. 5 ii 5 THE CASUALTY LOSS DEDUCTION IS another problem area. Ordinarily one can deduct a casualty loss which was not Insured no recovery was received from it. However, the first $100 cannot be claimed and that applies for each casualty. Under deductions associated with one's car, Hofmann points out that a deduction at the rate of five cents a mile can be made for charitable driving. The five cents a mile rate also holds if one uses his car to go for medical treatment for himself or a dependent. Hofmann reminds filers that license plate "fees" and drivers' license "fees" are no longer deductible. Nor are excise taxes or tobacco lates. The gasoline tat, real estate tax and the New York Mate income lax are deductible. The amount of New York State tax deductible on the Federal return consists of the total amount of New York State tax witheld in 1965 plus any payment made to New York State in 1965, either as balance on a l'.64 return or as payment on an estimated lax to New York State. A refund received from a 1964 return is included as taxable income in 1165, if deductions were itemized in 1964. t',t sj: A CIIANKK IN REPORTING DIVIDENDS confuses .some of the women. Previously, tax payers were able to exclude the first $50 of dividends, per tax payer. Now $100 can be excluded, per tax payer. However, the dividend received credit of four per cent has been eliminated. In the same category of reporting dividends and interest Hofmann stresses that all interest is taxable, under or over f 10, althuogh some banks send out notices of amounts only over $10. Technical advice is also frequently required by women in the sticky areas of retirement income credit, sick pay exclusion and moving expenses.
