__WI<;i)i\USUAY, JANUARY 10, 13LYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS 1945 Income Tax Primer Changes In Income Tax Law Offer Real Simplifications Survivors Tell Of Jap Torture Bound Prisoners Left On Deck Of Jap Sub When It Submerged COLOMBO. Ccj'lon, Jan. 10 (UP) — Twenty-three' survivors of an American Liberty ship Imvc n 1'er- sonul score to settle with tlic Japanese. Their vessel was torpedoed by a Jap submarine. And the submarines' crew murdered some of their shipmates and tortured the rest. Tlie sunburned bodies of tlte 23 survivors still bear scars from the beatings and bayonetiiiss inflicted by the merciless Japanese. It seems they were Merchant Marine, Army and Navy units bound for India from San E'edro Calif., in a 10,000-ton Liberty ship Last July, when they were 1 days out of Australia, two torpcdoe; crashed into Hie forward part tlieir boat. The order was given abandon ship. But before radioman Cullie Stone i of Tulsa. Oklahoma, left his post,' lie sent three SOS signals. They' were received by stations in India, which relayed (hem to the Royal Air Force patrol plane station, anil the subsequent approach o( one of the RAP patrol planes forced tile Jap submarine to crash- dive, and saved the lives of the 23 survivors. After its torpedoes rammed the American ship, the submarine surfaced. The leering Japanese crew ordered the survivors aboard. The first man to climb aboard flic enemy craft was a 17-year-old messman making his first voyage. The Japs led him to the bow of the submarine, shot him in the back, and tossed his body overboard. As the others climbed aboard, they were stripped of their watches, rings, wallets, identification tai and shoes. Then, they were bound and taken forward, where they were forced to sit with their heads bowed. If any man lifted his head —he was beaten. The Japs then formed n 'i |lc (> f death. Armed with' bayoneted amis and iron' pipes, they formed ail aisle through which tiie Americans were compelled to walk. 'As they walked, each Jap took his turn at stabbing or beating the defenseless .American. As the brutality progressed, the submarine commander addressed I his capiives saying: "Let this be a lesson to you that Americans are weak. You must realize that Japan will rule the world. You Americans were stupid for letting your leaders take you to war. Do you not know that the entire American Fleet is now in the bottom of the Pacific?" The Liberty ship's officers were taken to the conning towcv. They were never seen again. The Japanese had been enjoying their role of torturers for about two hours when'' th'e" 'RAP 'patrol plane appeared. The submarine quickly submerged, giving no thought for the Americans sitting on its deck with their hands tied behind their backs. As the men swam in the water, the plane dropped life" jackets and cans bf food and water to them. Thirty-six hours later a; rescue ship 'appeared on the .horizon: It was a' vessel of the -Ceyloiie'sc' Navy commanded by British officers. ; Here is Ihc second of 10 authoritative, oasy-to-follow articles telling the wage-earning taxpayer how lo prepare his Income tax iclurn. Readers should clip and save each Installment of the sc- ries. By S. BURTON HEATH NKA Staff Wrllen Three really radical changes have been made in the income tax low this year, In Ihc Interest of simplicity. Of tliose the most drastic is the new $500-per-]>crson exemption suggested by this writer a year ago in articles written for NEA Service and The Courier News. Formerly, you will remember, an unmarried taxpayer had a personal exemption of $500 unless he was legally head of a family, in which case he hnd the same $1200 exemption as a married couple. Each dependent was worth n credit of $350, except the first dependent of an unmarried family head, who was worth nothing for tax purposes. Now you can forget these complexities. You merely count the number of persons supported by I'our income—you are 1; your wife, if you arc married, is 2. each dependent counts one. And'each, including you, is one exemption. Jusi multiply $500 by the number of exemptions, and there Is your tax- family exemption DKPKNnKNCY TESTS Hi lax families of three or less, ihis reduces the total exemption a trifle. In families of four or more, It Increases the total exemption substantially. The second major change is in the test for dependency, which has been altered In three respects: First, against a few taxpayers, by eliminating all dependents who are not "close" relatives — natural or adopted children or descendant of children; step-children; parents or ancestors of parents; step-parents; parents-in-law; brothers and sisters (full, half, foster, step- or. -!n-law); uncles, aunts, nieces and nephews by blood, but not in-law. Second—For any of these the lest is actual dependency, regardless nf age or mental or physical condition. Now the taxpayer can claim credit for support oi nn over-lB- year-old child still in school. He no longer is refused the same credit for support of a close relative, healthy but out of work. ,that he always has had for gifts to charity for the benefit of total strangers. And finally, yon no longer have to figure, to the nearest month, how long you supported a dependent, and pro rate your credit. If n close relative was dependent at any time during the year, you can take full credit. Ttie third radical change Is eliiii- Ing of the tax liuv, rallier tlmn upon who paid the tax. Over a period of years, however, through custom and with the assistance of such articles as these, taxpayers had learned that they could deduct customs dudes i on articles im|>orted for personal use or gifts; admissions tax on tickets and Imposts such us tho cabaret tax; the wartime levy (now 15 per cent.) on transportation tickets; the cost of stamps required to be affixed lo certain business documents; tlic use lax stami: on automobiles; Ihe lax on lele phone and telegraph messages costing above prescribed amounts the taxes on safely deposit ,bo> rental, club dues, clc. Now all of Ihcse arc out. You pay them, but you can't deduc them, You'll have to leavn (he lisi all over again. Other cluiiujcs worth mcntlonlni Include a new $500 special excmp lion for Ihc blind; elimination o Installment payments on Income tax; a juggling of lax names and rales. ination of the old "earned income credit." That was based upon the theory that earned money ought not to be taxed so heavily as non-earn- Corp. Hallmark's Outfit Praised By Gen.

This change, far from simplifying the situation, increases the size of the income tax and also further befuddles what always has been a source o[ annoyance and bewilderment to most taxpayers. It used to be the theory that any tax could be deducted (except the federal income levy) if it was imposed directly upon the consumer. That theory meant little, because Ihe deducibility of each tax depended upon the technical word- ing organization it is today.
