:Two Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Taxpayers Can Ignore Expense Account Item WASHINGTON (UP) — Taxpayers can ignore one line in the 1957 federal income tax forms — the one requiring itemization of expense accounts. The government dropped the requirement Monday for listing expense receipts, although the query •will remain on the tax forms on line 6-A. Internal Revenue Commissioner Russell C. Harrington said the itemization "would place too great a burden on many taxpayers" because it was announced so late in the year. Harrington warned, however, that taxpayers should keep accurate records on their expense accounts for the 12 months starting Jan. 1 "so that for 1958 and later years they will be in a position to supply expense account infor- malion" to the government. The tax chief also said taxpayers would be required to follow the customary practice of attaching to their returns a separate listing of deductible expenses for which they received no reimbursement from .their employers. This applies principally to self-employed persons. Harrington's statement ended a month of confusion and consternation among taxpayers whose business expenses are reimbursed by their employers.
