COURTS-MARTIAL ABUSES UP Surest Way Is to Follow Form 1040A. - Free Advice in Doubtful Cases. Severe.Penalties in ' Law. Nobody Is exe,mi«» from Income Tax. An obligation la laid directly on the shoulders of each citizen and resident to consider his own case and to get his return In on time if one is due, With each return showing, a tax due a payment must accompany the return In the full amount of the tax or at least, one-quarter .of the tax. All returns for 1919 must be flled on or before March 15. Must Show True Figure*. In figuring up his earnings for Income tax purposes a person must take Ipto consideration all items of taxable income, and each item Itself must be accurate In amount. Guesses and es- timatei • must be avoided, for the return la made voder oath. , Everybody who had an'income dur- ID( 1019 Bust n»w determine whether his or her net Income was sufficient in amount to require an Income Tax return. The best .way to find out is t» get a Form 1040A antf follow the Instructions printed on it. That form will serve as a remlnfler of every item of Income; and if a return is due. It tells how to prepare and file it. One of the Important points to keep In 'mind is that a person's 'net Income Is found bj a computation prescribed In the law, and that each Item of income from every source must be considered, unless specifically exempted. Another thing to remember Is that th<. personal exemption allowed taxpayers by law has no relation whatever to the requirement to file return. This exemption is not to be considered until a person has figured out his net income and determined whether it -iva? sufficient to require him to file a return. Then, If a return must be Hied, he should rend carefully the instructions for claiming exemption, nnd complete his return. If In doubt on any point as to income or deductions, a person may secure frep advice and aid from the nearest Internal Revenue office. Many banks and trust companies are also furnishing similar service (luring banking hours. Heavy Penalties in Law. For failing to make a return on time the penalty is a fine of not more than 51,000 and an addition of 2& per cent to the tax, if any. For making a false or fraudulent return -the penalty Is a Bne of not more than $10,000 or imprisonment hot exceeding one year, or both; and, In addition, 50 per cent of the tax. There are other penalties for failing to pay tax when due and for understatement of the tax through negligence, "i Many Sources of Income. Aside from what one may earn by his services, there are many other sources of Income. II he sold any property during 1919 he must figure out the gain realized. If he ren-ted buildings, land, apartments or rooms such rents must be considered taxa- able, and he may claim deductions for necessary expenses incidental to rents. Bank Interest is a common source of Income and is taxable whether withdrawn or not. Any amount of interest credited to a depositor is income to the depositor. Interest on mortgages and notes is taxable: also bond Interest received from corporations. A taxpayer who cashed his insurance during 1039 must report as in- 'come any excess received over the total of premiums paid. Members of partnerships or personal service corporations or beneficiaries of nu estate or rmst must report their shares of income distributable to them whether or not actually withdrawn.. Dividends of domestic corporations must be reported. Many other'forms of income are taxable, unless specifically -exempteC Rryai C.
