revenue - department at Washington is girding ltlf for one of the mightiest bookkeeping tasks the world war has Imposed upon tho Oovernment For the task of figuring the tax to be paid On these Incomes devolves on Washington where an army of new clerks will have to be employed to handle this Intricate work ltevenue officers of the Oovernment believe that not one man In 1000C understands the Income tax provin - lons of the statutes as they stand now Hundreds of letters that are reaching Collector Justus S Warden in Sam Francisco testify to this The States leading bankers are balked at what Congress was driving at when It passed the war revenuo bill and they are flooding Collector Wardens offloo with requests - for circularised information Some of this - can not be given until the - department at Washington construes certain points ALU MlST FILM RETVRXS The advice Collector Warden gives oilt is not to worry The only duty Imposed on the citizen Is the official statement of his income called the return In Government parlanceThe returns will be assessed and audited In Washington for the entire country so that the local offices lw1I act merely as clearing - houses for accepting and forwarding the returns and later collecting the - taxes when they become due The returns must be made between January 1 and March 1 19 IS These must show the entire Income from every source at the Individual during the year 1917 and they must be sworn to before a notary public deputy collector or pther officer Blanks for these returns have not been received but they wll be - in time and they may be had by applying either In person or by mall to tha collectors office In the custoni - house The San Francisco office will supply all of i rr r i Northern California as far south as JOtir UOUSflS tlOla WAIT FOR NOTIFICATIOX j Once the return is fllcdl properly the lav may be forgotten until the Oovernment nptlfles the Indlvldiial the amount of his tax and then It niust be paid In full sometlme before June 15 The taxmay be paid at the -

the fact that there arc two laws In force each distinct and each with supertaxes for higher incomes at different rates The 1918 law goM no hlgherthan to take 13 per cent of Incomes over ta0O0O0C but the new -
