PAGE TWO BI.YTHEVIU,E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Yew ond Your Income Tax: Claiming Your Exemptions—• Dependents Are Worth $600 (E4IUr'« N«te: This Ic the third f •f 12 siWtai explaining who must it irhit inrf hair about his IMS incMac lax r*(iirn.} By James Marlow WASHINGTON, Feb. 15—</P)— Watch your exemptions In making your 1949 Income tax return, For each one you can rightfully claim. $600 Is knocked off your income before what's left can be taxed. Everyone who had $600 or more income in 1949 must file a. return. ' But—everyone who files a return: 1. Is allowed a $600 exemption for himself plus $600 If he was blind in 1949 ;plus $000 if he was 65 or oJder in 1019. 2. If his wife had no income or files a Joint return with him, he's allowed a 5600 exemption for her; phis S600 If she was blind in 1049: plus SGOO If she was 64 or older in 1949. 3. And lie's allowed a $600 exemption for each dependent lie can claim. That's all he gets for a dependent. There Is no added $600 exemption because a dependent is blind or 65. Wives or Dc-prurlenls? ' Tile rules covering wives and dependents are not the same because a wife Is not classified as a dependent. So watch them. Tiie wife— If she had any income, no matter how small, the husband can claim no exemption for her unless she files Jointly with him. What of a wife who is claimed as a dependent by somebody else, such as her father, who may have sun- ported her? Can she file jointly with her husband? >Yes. but then the perfon who sun- ported her can't, claim her. However, if she wants her father, who supported her, to have her exemption she should not file a joint./c- tnrn with her husband. She can't be . an exemption on two different returns. If she files her own return, then 'she claims her own $600 exemption. The husband, in that case, gets no exemption for her on his return he can/claim only his own exemptions. . Example: The husband's salary was $5,000. The wife had $40 Income from baby sitting, or sewing, or something' else. Since her Income was less than $600, she doesn't have to file a return. But-^since she had income—unless she files Jointly with her husband, he loses the $600 exemption for her. Dependents— .' (Wei Quirk in I-aw There's a queer twist In the law on dependents. As pointed out before, anyone with $600 or there, income must file his own return and claim his own $600 exemption If his income was : 'ess' 1 linn . srjcn. lie does hot have to tile a return but— 'A person who-'had ,$500Jpr mrire income—even :;.though' 1 : that's iiw less than the $600 income which would require him to file a return In his own right—cannot be claimed as a dependent by anyone. That doesn't make sense, but that's the law. You can claim as a dependent . any close relative'of any age—age doesn't matter—who got more than half his support from you in 1949 and had less than $500 income of his own. You can claim as a dependent only these close relatives: Youv child jr gn.urlclultl: n sliii- child but not his children; a legally adopted child; a brother, sister, step-brother, step-sister: your parents, grandparents, or other ancestors; your step-father; step-mother; aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, all related by blood; and your In-laws; father-mother-sister-brothnr - son- daughter-in-law. You can claim' as a dependent lor the full year a child born to you any time in 1949, even though It died a moment after hirtli. You can't claim as a dependent an unborn child or one born dead. What of a dependent who dieri in 19497 You can claim a full $600 exemption for him ,even though lie. died as early as Jan. 1, 1949. provided he was truly a dependent during tile part of thn vear he was alive.
