THf NATION TODAY— January 76 is Important Tax Date for Millions in the U.S.; Deadline for Income Estimates By James .Marlow WASHINGTON'. Jan. 3. W-January 16 is an income tax date tor several million people. at should have been Jan. 15, but that's a Sunday. So these lax returns must be In by midnight Jan. 16 instead of midnisht Jan. 15,. This Is a date for you if you haven't had the full (ax, or any lax withheld from yonr 1940 income or WIIBC. and your total income, was $600 or more. 4. . _ ... income of mo.u peo-I ,},p corr*>r-(imi .,.,^ ...... i.. *..n i... had full mn income tax withheld from them in 1940. it: <If you're one of them, don't •fc'orry about Jan. 16. You'll have to make your final relurn by March 15. when people do.) You can tell from what follows whether Jan. 16 means yon. (Jnn. 16 us a date for farmers, Ux>, but lhe.v'11 be treated separately here.) Kstiimiles Due .Ian. II! That date—Jan. 16—Is for filing, changing and paying yonr declaration of rstlmated'tax for 1949. !. Some people hud no tax withheld from their 1949 income. This includes people like doctors, servants, farm hands. Early in 1949. if they knew no tax was going to be withheld from their 1949 income, they should have estimated what that tax would be by the end of 1049 and started pay- Inw it in four installments The first installment should have been made March 15. 1940, the .second, June 15, the third, Sept. 15. and the fourth, Jan. 1C. 1950. So for them Jan, 16 means final payment on their estimated !fl49 tax. 2. Some people had some tax. but not all the !!)49 tax due, withheld from (heir 1949 wages. Starting last March 15, they should have been paying the difference between the tax withhold and Ihe full tax they knew they'd owe by year's end. The last quarterly payment from them is due Jan. 16. 3. S-,me people hart full tax withheld from their 1949 wage.s but received more than S100 in outside in- irOme from which no tax was with- Tield. That outside income for a wage-earner might have been rents. dividends, sales. The government wants them to pay by Jan. 10 any tax owed.

As for farmers: Farmers didn't muko any tax payments in 1949 on 194!) income. Didn't they have to make those ! quarterly estimated payments like! other people No. Why?

CARUTHERSVILLE NEWS By Joan D<iii|;laKs * WE, THE WOMEN in lurrri'n NEA Stan Wrilo \n Knlh MilleU ... .,..,.: ....... IHMM.JL- Educators argue back and forth The people in those three groups i on whether or not women should can make Iheir Jan. 16 return on be educated exactly as men arc or | whether they should be educated as women. White they nrgue, mothers should be making sure that their diuii;h- tcrs are being educated "as \vomen" at home. Bring up a daughter cxactlv as you briny up her broliiers "and | you've failed to til her for her feminine role in life. For the girl who knows no more about Ihe art of homernaking than her brothers know is going to have to start from 'scratch' when she finds herself responsible for running a home of her own. Off to a head start is the girl who. from (lie time she is little, is taught at home, the social and household skills that a woman has to master if she is to be successful or form 1040. Trcy'll save time or form 1040. hey'll save time, and trouble by using form 104H. since lliat will finish up all their tax business with the government. If they use form 1040-ES to file a return Jan. 1C, it won't stand as their final return for 1949. Why? Because form 1010-ES is simply an estimate of what you think your lax should be. Forin 1040 is where you're positive and final on what your tax Is. Everybody!' file 10-iQ anyway. So. even though you tile form 1040-ES on Jan. 16. by March 15 you'll have to file a final return on form 1MO. Therefore, if yon can file form 1(HO on Jan. 16, your work is none. ^ Still, some people in the three 1^'oiips above may, for various reasons, iincl II best for them lo iile their Jan. 16 return on form 1040- ES and then by March 15 make their final return on form 1040. For Instance: during 1949 they got a raise but will not know precisely by Jan. 1C—because the boss in a girl while she is still young hadn't yet given them a receipt And the sooner a mother real- showing how much tax he withheld ' i^es that and starts in lo help her from their pay—what their total i daughter become feminine in all 194D income was and exactly how • the ways that will make life easier much tax was wiihtt'ld from them. ' Stress Importance or llnmcmabinff Gracious manners, the art of making guests comfortable and happy, pride in how she looks, good taste, and the feeling that homemaking is an important Job, can all be nurtured and encouraged . There's another point to keep in and smoother and happier for her — the better. mind: Some of thaw who've been We've just gone through a period making quarterly payments on their j when girls were allowed to ape 11119 estimated tax. discover now boys in their clothes, in their nian- they underestimated the lax they'd owe. ners. and so on.
