WytJievflta (Ark.) Courier K«m - Friday, February t, MM - Pa|ajrin Income Tax Rulings cut your own taxes by Ray DeCrans A common saying i n income tax law is> that all money that flows to you is taxable unless it is specifically exempt by law. '» The law exempts a great deal of income from such tax, perhaps more than most people realize. Check this list carefully to make sure that income from none of these sources is listed on your income tax return. INCOME FROM ALL THESE SOURCES IS NONTAXABLE: Accident and health insurance proceeds. Bequests. Disability and death benefits paid by an insurance company. The first $5,000 paid by or for an employer to a deceased em- ploye's beneficiaries or estate because of the employee's death. Gifts and inheritances. Interest on tax - free securities, such as municipal bends. Life insurance proceeds paid on the death of the insured. Military allowances, such as allowances for uniforms, subsistence and quarters. Mustering - out pay. Payments to dependents of •military personnel. Railroad Retirement Act pen-ions. Rental or Housing allowances furnished a clergyman. Scholarship and fellowship ' grants. Sick pay under certain circumstances. (See a later installment in this series for a complete descussion of the sick pay rules.) Social Security benefits. *••••••••••«•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• "CUT YOUR OWN TAXES" f/o Blytheville Courier News Dept 723 P. O. Boi «9 Radio City Station New York, N.

Our friend claims that he was quite philosophical about this but really blew his top wfien the South member of his team criticized him for not doubling the diamond slam. bitter about today's hand. It : seems that in a team match he sat West and opened the six of hearts against the diamond slam. His partner won with tfie ace, and since our correspondent made his king of trumps later on, they scored wh'a't should have-been a niee ; prof it- able 100 points. V ' 'He felt that North and South -had overbid, and.we have to agree with him. South had a tough choice of bids at this second turn. Two diamonds would : be an underbid, three;dianiohds or anything else an overbid, so South had overbid when he went to three diamonds. After .tjiat overbid; South shoukFhave contented himself with merely going to five diamonds. His four spade call suggested a slam, and while North might have bid only five diamonds, North assumed that his partner was demanding a slam if North could take the second heart lead. : ' In any event, the slam wasn't too bad a contract. We have bid and made many worse ones. It seems that the South player 'on his team chose the underbid of two diamonds. North might have passed but saw no reason not to raise to three diamonds. Then this South corrected his .previous-underbid in the worst possible way. He went to three no-trump. . West made his normal open- Ing of the fourth best heart, arid the defense opened up with five heart tricks. They still,had to make either the king of diamonds or queen of clubs, so. plus 100 for beating sir diamonds turned out to be a loss of 100 points of three International Match Points.
