TUESDAT, JANTJARY 99, 1998 BLTTHEVILLE {ARK.l COURTER NEW* PAGE THREE You and Yow I mom* T Three Forms Should Give Little Trouble in. Choosing for Return (EDITOR'S NOTE: This k the * •ccond In l ftrln explaining how to make out your Income tax return for 19M.) By JAMES MARLOW . WASHINGTON «>/—YOU should have no trouble choosing the lorm lor your 1951 Income tax return. Form 1040-A. Strictly for under- 45,000 income people who had all or most of the tax withheld from ' them. No figuring. Answer questions. Mail to the collector. He figures the tax for you. Form 1040 Short-Form. For under-$5,000 people who don't lit the rules for using form 1040-A. No figuring, rind your tax in the table on the back. That's why it's called the Short-Form. The lx>ng Form Form 1040 Long-Form. It's the same form ;040 but is called the long-form when instead of using the tax table, you figure you own tax. A person with $5.000 or mor income has no choice. He must use this long-form, figuring his tax. This 1040-Long-Form can also be used by any of the under-55.000 people whose deductible expenses, such as charitable contributoins or medical bills, were unusually large. Here's an explanation. Most people's deductible expenses don't amount to 10 per cent of income. Still, anyone using form 1040-A automatically gets a deduction of 10 per cent before the rest of his income is taxable. Collector Figures Tax When you mail form 1040-A to the collector he figures ybiir tax according to a- table in which al- n ]owance already has been made for ** that 10 per cent or so of deductible expenses. So, in using form 1040-A, you don't have to itemize a single expense. , But don't use form 1040-A if 1 you're one of those under-SS.OOO people whose deductible expenses were actually more than 10 per cent. Instead, use the 1040 Long Form. There you'll have to figure your own tax and itemize every expense you wish to deduct. But, in this way, you can claim the full Japan Resumes Making of Munitions, Plans to Begin Building Tanks c or/orn Aussie Lover Sits in Japanese Jail TOKYO <AP>—Japan, pledged by* IU Constitution to outlaw war, ha* resumed making munitions and has plans for building tanks, the newspaper Yomiurl cald today.

He said she gave her heart—in succession—to two other Australian servicemen at Kurea, main depo for Australians on occupation or Korean service.

But a court martial was unmoved. Ihe Australian Army said he had a criminal record besides' hi illegal entries and did not deserve sympathy. So he was sent h,ome again. Life in Australia was bitter.

Deduction I* Automatic The under-$5,000 people can't use form 1040-A but use the 1040 short-form also automatically get a deduction of about 10 per cent for expenses. It's allowed for hi th« table they use on the back of form 1010. H their expenses run to more than 10 per cent of Income, they too, should use the 1040 Long-Form •nd claim their deductions in full even though it means the extra trouble of figuring their own tax and itemizing deductions. Anyone with $5,000 or more Income, using the 1040 . Long-Form, takes a deduction of 10 per cent up to a limit of $1,000 without f. iteming. He subtracts that deduction -before applying the tax to what's left of his income. Note to married people: married couples filing jointly on the 1040 Jong-form take that 10 per cent, up to a limit of $1,000, without itemizing. But if they file separately, no more than $500, Examples: Jones' income was $7,800. He deducts $780 from his who income before applying the tax to the remainder. Smith's Income was $10,000. He knocks off $1,000. Brown's Income was $11,000. He can't claim any more than the $1.000 limit without itemizing. . In short, anyone with $5.000 or more income but less than $10,000 must itemize his deductions Sf he wants to claim more than 10 per cent of his income. Anyone with $10,000 or more who wants to claim more than $1.000 must Itemize. Here are the rules: 1040-A. You can use It If your Income was under $6,000 and all of It^—except for no more than $100 in untaxed wages, dividends or interest—had tax withheld from it. Examples: Jones: Income was $4,600. Tax was withheld from all but $100 in untaxed wages, dividends, or interest. He can use form 1040-A. But If that extra income from untaxed wages or interest or divi- each to limited to a deduction of dends amounted to as much as $100.01 he couldnt use it. And If le has any other kind of income no matter how small—say a commission or rent or money from farm- ,ng—he couldn't use form 1040-A. I But any under-$5,000 person who can't use form 1040-A can use the [ 1040 short-form. Or, if his deductions are more than 10 per cent of his Income, he can use the 1040 long-form where, although hell have to itemlie his deductions, he can claim them fully. Husbands and wives may use form 1040-A or the 1040 short-form to file » joint return and, by splitting their Income, save money if — their combined income is under $5,000 and it fits the rules for using form 1040-A or the 1040 short-form. Husband-wife problems will be treated mow fully in a later story. Remember this: No matter what form you use, attach to It all the receipts — called form W-2 — given you by your employer or employers for all the fcsx withheld from you during the year.
