MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE P I /· .YOUR U. S. INCOME TAX Exemption $1200 for Family Head See Us First for Wallpaper and Wallpaper Supplies. BOOMHOWER HARDWARE The federal income tax is, as the name implies, a tax levied upon incomes and it is payable in relation to the amount of income. Income for federal income tax purposes means in general any compensation for one's services whether the compensation be in money or in goods or other services. It includes also tlie net value received for the product of one's labor, as- farm produce in the case of a fanner: income from investments; profit from business operations; and other gains from sales and exchanges of goods and property. Certain limited categories of income are. however, tax exempt and to the extent of such exemption are excluded in computing the tax. Because of exemptions from the tax given to persons having less than certain stated amounts ot income as well as because of various deductions and credits allowable only a small proportion .of the number of persons receiving income have until recently been subject to the tax. Thus, of the estimated 55 million persons in this country who received income in one form or another during the calendar year 1341 only some 2C million were required to file federal income tax returns for that year while of these same 2ti million more than 9 million were not taxable because of credits and deductions allowable. As a result of the lowering of exemptions, many more persons are now subject to the federal income tax than before and for the calendar year 1942 it is estimated that more than 35 million persons will file federal income tax returns. To the large number of persons now subject to the federal income lax who have never reported income before for federal tax purposes an understanding of the law and applicable regulations is of prime importance. An income lax return is a declaration on the part of (he taxpayer of his total taxable income for the'year together with the various deductions, exemptions and credits to which he is entitled. It is in reliance upon voluntary disclosure and the integrity of taxpayers generally that the cost of administration of the income tax can be : kept at a minimum. Though the return is a voluntary statement any person who willfully makes a return which he does not believe to be true and correct in every material matter is subject to the penalties provided by law. * ¥ * The first requirement of Ihe law is the filing of an appropriate return. For individuals generally, this must be done by March in following the end of the calendar year. The. return must be filed with the appropriate collector oi internal revenue for the district in which is located the legal residence or principal place of business of the person making (he return. _, Under the present law every single person and every married person not living with husband or wife, having a total income (earnings together with other income) of S500 or more, and married persons living with husband or wife throughout the taxable year who have an aggregate income (total earnings of both husband and wife, together with other income) of 31,200 or more, regardless of the amount of ne't income, must file a return.

Paul Martin, secretary or the Iowa Restaurant Operators association, said Monday that the public had responded wholeheartedly to the plea of restaurant men that customers get along on a single cup of.cplfee to conserve supplies. Before coffee rationing a majority of resturant patrons asked for a second cup. Martin said, but now only a scattered few want a refill. However, restaurant men are being hit by new problems at the rate of nearly one a week, Martin said, and many of them have given up and quit business. He declined to estimate how many of Hie 3.500 restaurants t h a t were operated in Iowa before the war have been closed, but said the total would be '"large." Inability to obtain food and help, and lack of customers be- c a u s e gasoline rationing prevents them from reaching outlying places, have caused most of the closings. Martin said. Butter is becoming a major problem in restaurants. Operators can't get as much as thev used to . breath- an( i have turned to two ways of to tell Ins mother of a | cut ling consumer demand.

She paid lip service to his amazing discovery, and chalked it up to his imagination. However he caught the creature in a trap later, and up until now it has been identified only by guesses whirh have run to crosses between beaver, muskrat, ground hog opossum and other native animals! G. Braga of Rockford writes that the animal, whose picture he saw in a recent issue of the Globe-Gazette, may be a South American animal known as Ne- tura. He says that several of thes-- were raised by Wilbert Mund- showcr of Marble Rock a year ago, mid that one escaped, "and had never been found. The Netui-a was pictured with meal, as has been the custom. Most place-; have begun to feature the so-called "cheaper" cuts of meat on their menus becayse of difficulty in setting fresh ham. boneless cuts of beef and good steaks. Martin said. Thev ;et all She poul- Iry they want, he reported. a muskrat and a deer mouse to show comparative sizes, and it was nearly twice as large ;ts the muskrat, greatly resembling it otherwise.

W O L F S - R E A D Y - T O - W E A R - W O L F S Minnesota Legislature to Be Opened ST. PAUL, (U.R) -- Minnesota's first wartime legislative session in ] 26 years will open Tuesday. I The last war-time legislature [was in April, 1917, when war broke out 12 clays before adjournment. J, A. A. Burnquist, now state attorney general, was governor when America went to war with Germany. He had begun his second term in office in January, after having completed the previous term of 'Gov. Winfield S. Hammond, who died in December, 1915. Actually, activity of the 1943 session began Monday, with members of majority and minority groups in both the house and the senate meeting in caucus to complete organization. Possibly the biggest task to confront the 1043 session will be , consideration of post-war rc- i habitation legislation. Its position, thus, will differ from that of . the World war I session which delayed all action on such meas- ', tires until a special session short: ly after the war. Gov. Harold E. Stassen promised voters during his campaign for re-election that a complete program to cushion the shock of unemployment would be presented to the legislature. So far he has outlined plans for extensive post-war construction programs, and has set up emergency reserves to meet the costs of the work. His action in freezing state highway department funds must be approved by both houses. The legislature must select a , new lieutenant governor to suc- j coed Ed Thyc when he moves I j into the governor's office late in I April. , Thye. who will succeed Gov-' i ernor Stassen when the governor j ; enters active service with the! i navy after the close of the lenis- I [ laturc, will be followed in office i i by the president pro tern of t h e ! I senate. Stntc statutes provide | that the senate shall name a [ I president pro tern at the end o f ; | the session, who will serve as ' lieutenant governor in the event of a vacancy in that office. The salary of the lieutenant governor is double that of a state senator THE SAlE'THAt ATTRACTS THE CROWDS!
