ZELLNER'S LAST BARGAINS AT ZtLLNWS SLIPPtR Congress to 'expected to revise the persons! Income tax law early tills year. That revision 1< expected to apply to all or most Income received during 19*8. Tt Is generally assumed that the revision will Include permission for all husbands a,nd wive* to B plH their Joint Income, as those In Community J ropcrty law states now can. This would considerably reduce the nmount a! tax due. There Is strong sentiment for increasing the personal exemption allowed for each member of the tax family, from the present »500 to a larfier figure — possibly MOO each. That would make some change In the nnroifiit of tax due. Finally, there Is the possibility of a downward revision of tax ratej. The Bureau of Internal Revenue Is not assuming anything about what Congress will do in any of these respects—or whether'Presi- dent Truman will veto such a bill —or whether, if he does .the bill will be passed over his veto In this presidential election year. But the Bureau does want to avoid a flood of estimates—accompanied by partial payments—based upon the old law, which then have to be amended downward, often with claims for refund of the payments already made. If action on a new tax law is not taken by _thc middle of March there Is n'o op'inion. under the law, except to (lie an estimate and then amend it later—making extra work lor taxpayers and Bureau alike, and jr.ittins both to needless expense.
