But the chances are she has paid little or 10 attention to the actual details of the income tax laws, and hasn't bothered to check up on legitimate ways and means of saving on her tax budget, u well as her food budget. The authority lor the statement about food and taxes is Paul s. Willis, president of Grocery Manufacturers of America, inc., who ild in a recent speech that in 1950 the per capita tax bill was »376, while the per capita food bill "•as (346. He estimated that the >x bill would exceed $450 per person In 1951. This does not mean that- the man vith less than $2,000 annual Income >pends more for taxes than for food, but the man with an income of $3,000 probably does. His Income bill alone might be about $2,000, while his food bill, if he has a ihriity wife, should be considerably less. Add to this figure the sales taxes, amusement taxes, luxury :axes, gasoline taxes, license lees. ~eal estate taxes, school taxes and nidden taxes on practicaUy every ,t*m he buys, and you begin to get in idea of the total tax bill of middle-bracket income. Willis estimates that even before the 1951 tax increase a family with in income of S3.500 was spending me fourth of it for taxes, direct md hidden. He asserts that on jroceries alone. $1 out of every $6 goes for hidden taxes. Most people who make out their iwn income lax returns pay more han necessary, says Miriam Eolis. a tax expert who is a partner in he accounting firm of L. Eolis, Sew York, and a member of the federal Tax Committee of the N.Y. State Society of Certified Public Accountants.

Phone 3648 AmericansAreNowSpendLngMort Money for Taxes Than for Food By DOROTHY ROE Awoclatcd first Women's Editor Now that Americans are reported to spe/id more (or taxes than for food, <t would be a good Idea for the lady of the house to take a quick brush-up course on this important subject. The average U. 8. housewife has oted, no doubt, her husband's shrinking pay check, and perhaps , complained, about the bigger uncle Sam has been takin izes In tax matters, says the average tax payer is not aware of the regular deductions permitted under Income tax regulations, she says: "You can help yourself or your husband by keeping a record of all household and personal expenses that may be deductible. Many women keep a tax notebook, and moke dally entries to be sure every possible item i» recorded and not forgotten. Major Expenses LUled "Some of the major expenses to remember are: sales taxes but not federal excise taxes, real estate taxes, contributions, auto registration and driver's licensee lees dog licenses, state gasoline tax, interest paid on loans, mortgages and Installment purchases if specified in purchase contract, losses not covered by Insurance, such as burglary or storm damage to the home." Miss Eolis points out that, it's smart to keep track of medical expenses, too, since all .such expenses over 5 per cent of your adjusted gross income are deductible up to a point. These include doctor and dentist bills; medical and dental supplies, Including toothpaste; premiums on health, accident and hospltaltiatlon Insurance policies; eye glasses, false teeth and asprin. 300 Women Members There are 300 women members of the American Institute of Accountants, the national professional society of CPAs—and you can bet they don't overpay their taxes. This group points out some other pertinent facts: If you get married even on the last day of the year, you can file a joint tax return for the whole year. If you have a baby on Dec. 31, you can still list him as a deduction from the year's income. If you win damages In court for breach of promise, personal injuries or slander, the money you receive Is not taxable H nrt need not be reported in your income tax form. So, whether you're an average working girl or a housewife, it will pay you in dollars and cents to learn your tax primer, and keep a close watch on the tax situation this year.
