BURTON' HEATH NBA Stuff • Writer The Withholding Receipt that can he filed by some 30 million persons as an income tnx return, If they please, Is known technically as Form W-2 (Rev.) Your employer Is required by law to give you such a statement not later than January 31 or. if you leave the job previously, when your employment tcrmi- .nates. Form VV-2 is new. During 1944 another form was used. If you cbnngcd jobs (luring 1944 nnd received n "Statement of Income Tnx Withheld from Wages," you can use this as a withholding receipt for that portion of your last year's income. COltniiCT RECEIPT Your employer fives you an original (hat you can file, and n duplicate for your own records. He is supposed to fill in the left side of the front with his own name and address; your name, address and bocial Security number; the total wages he paid you last year and the amount he withheld for income tax. If you decide to file the original W-2 you should correct any error in your name or address. Then on the right side of the front you should (ill in the blanks in the five lines printed in blackface type. If you have more than one receipt use the' most recent one for filing] If both husband and wife have W-2 forms, it may be best to use the husband's most recent one. !i Line 1. if you were the only wage-earner in the family and this was your only job during the year, enter on line. 1 the amount of wage- shown by your employer's statement on the left side of the page; 11 you had more than one job, or if your wife also worked, add the wages shown on all Withholding Receipts for both of you t Line 2. Add together all untaxed wages received by you and your wife, plus interest on bant- accounts, bonds, notes or loans plus any dividends on stock,' to get the figure for line 2. IPor appreciation on war bonds, see tomorrow's article). 5 Line 3. Add the amounts shown on lines 1 and 2 to get line 3 Now apply the test. Is the amount on Line 2 $100 or less? Is the amount on Line 3 les>s thnn $5000? If so, you can file W-2 as a return, it either amount exceeds that mentioned, you must use Form 1040 Jf you do meet the test: ? Line 4. Unless both husband and wife had income, ignore this. If both did, divide your income and show how much belonged Io each. Tliis will save you money. 3 Line 5. If you filed a Tax Estimate (1010 ESI during (he year, and paid something with it, enter here the amount paid. Otherwise ignore this line. Now turn to the back of the form. On the left side, on the flrsl line , write your name. On the other lines write UIQ names of your wife and each dependent for whom you claim exemption, slatliig'cncli relationship. In the second niilclc 1 named'de- grees of relationship thnt can be the basis for legal dependency.
