In many cases ther will s»ve money. ' And in most cases where both have Income they'll save by tiling a Joint return. Why? Because ol the new law which Congress passed lust year to cut taxes and give married couples a break. They can "split" Ihcir income as If each were claiming half.

With both forms a deduction if 10 percent already Is taken care o( in the tax table used with those forms. So a couple using them doesn't even huve to claim that deduction ol 10 percent,. It's given wiln- out asking. An automatic 10 percent deduction like that Is a generous allowance. Most people's deductible expenses don't run that high. But— If your Income was untler »5,000 but your deductions run more than 10 percent, you'll lose money by is on form 1C40A or the lOtu short lonn. Uie, Instead, the 1040 long-form. There you'll have to Itemize your deductions, but you can claim UHMII. Remember, though, that part ol your deductible expenses which is inane up ol contributions cnn'1 rim more than 15 percent of your income. 11 a wile or husband, lor any reason, use:; the long-term to Itemize deductions, the other partner must mo it, too. and Itemize. Couples with $5,000 or mate, income, using the long-lorm, are allowed a deduction oj 10 percent up to a limit ol $1,000 to such deductions. Tills Is a standard deduction for them. It doesn't require itemizing. Dt'ihlclloni Kxclaltned (Example: Ariams had 19,500 income.

A couple married anytime In 1S48—even on Dec. 31—can file a Joint return on their income for all of 1948, thus Belting the benefit ol the lower "split" income tax on married couples.
