PAGE SIX BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COimiER NEWS TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1950 Yo« ond Your Income Tox: Using Form 1040-A— Revenue Collector Does Wor/c For You Under Form 1040-A (Editor's- Note; This Is the *• eighth af « stories explaining i who mast do what and how about ( his 1949 income tax return.) By James MarJow WASHINGTON, Feb. 21. fAP> — This explains the u^e of Form 1010-A In making your-1949 income tax return. Just answer the questions on the form and send it to the internal revenue collector, Don't send any money with it. Kc'H figure your' tax for you. If he finds you owe any money, . he'll notify you. You have 30 days after he notifies you to pay i;p. If he finds you have a refund due because too much tax w?s withheld from you. He'll send it to you. Do yo have any doubts whether you can use 1 Form 1040-A? Tills U the rule for using it: Rule fur IOIO-A Your total income in 194!) must have been under $5.000 and all of it—except for no more thiin $100 untaxed income in wages .Interest or dividends—must have been in wages or salary from which full tax . was withheld during the year. If you dont' fit that rule, even though your income was less than $5.000, you can't use Form 1040-A. You can use the 1040 Short Form where you find your own tax in a table on the back. - If your income was $5,00fl or more, no matter what kind of income, you can't use either form 1040-A or the 1040 Short Form. You can use only the 1040 long form and figure your own tax. Example: You had $4.9!HKS9 total Income. All but 5100 of it had been in wages or salary from which full tax was withheld. That other $100 was in untaxed wages, interest or dividends. You can use Form 1040-A but— If that other untaxed income— in wag BE, dividends or interest—had amounted to $10i, even though full tax was withheld from the rest of your Income, you couldn't use Form 1040-A. But, so long as the total Income was less than $5,000. you could use the 1040 Short Form. And, even though your income was under $5,000, if any of it came from things like rents, or fes or farming, you couldn't ILSC Form 1040-A. You'd have to use the 1040 short form. " Since—in order to use Fjrm 1940- A you most have had all, or nearly all, the .tax withheld from you In 1M9—you-.should have receipts from your boss showing just how much tax he withheld and turiiedjovcr to the; government. -' j Receipt for Withdrawing Everyone who had taxes withheld 1 should have such a receipt from his boss. It's called Form W-2, a withholding statement. Some people will have more thjyi one such receipt because they worked for more than one boss during the year, In sending in your filled-out Form 1040-A, you must attach a copy of each form W-2 given you by your boss or bosses, On form 1040A watch the questions about your being blind or Co in 1049. Be sure you make the correct check mark. Every person filing a return gets a 5600 exemption. But if he was' blind in 19-59, he gets an extra $600 exemption, and if he was 65 in 1349, he gets still another $GOQ exemption. And each person filing a return— if his svifc files jointly with htm, or If sue had no Income—gels a JCOO exemption for her, plus another $000 if she was blind In 1949. plus another $GOO if .she wus (35 in 194Q. (You get only a $600 lOfemption for a dependent and no extra SGOO because the dependent was blind or Go in 1949.) Be sure, though, that you list every person you can justly claim as a dependent. A dependent is a close relative who received more than half his support from you in 1919 and income, if he had any, was less than 53CO. The rest of the problem of filling out Fonn 1040-A Is i s[mi)le. And be sure—if you're making a joint husband-wife return—that both 'of you sign it. For more detailed explanations of the problems of deductions, exemptions, and husband-wife filing on Form 1040-A, sec previous stories in this series. (Tomorrow using the l&IO Short Form) Quakers Object To H-Bomb Order WASHINGTON, Feb. (AP) — A spokesman for the Quakers told senators today thst President Truman's decision to make the hydrogen bomb was "unwise and immoral." .

Levering told a Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee the great majority of Americans believe the United States should "now launch a great moral crusade for peace through international control and reduction of national armaments, and through generous use of 'our economic resources to improve work! living standards."

WASHINGTON. Feb. 21. W) —i Splitting 5 U) 3, tile Supreme Court yesterday uphekt the right of feder- nl ojiiccrs to search a~d seize without a warrant so long as the action ts part of a lawd'l arrest. The major opinion by Justice Minion, newest member of the tribunal, described the search of a New York ^tninp dealer's office as "reasonable" nucl in line with past decisions. But Justice Frankfurter dissented sharply .inri aimed an indirect slap at both Minion and J'isticc Clark, molhr. comparative newcomer to thn bench. Declaring the decision runs coun- ; ter to the Foi-rlh Amendment to ! the Constitution, which forbids unreasonable search and seizure, Frankfurter wrote: "Especially ought tills court not to recnforcc the instabilities of our day, b.v giving fair prouiui for the . belief that law is the expression of i chance—for instance, of rnexpected chail£e.< in tl?p court's composition and the contingencies in the choice of successors " Specifically, the tribunal an- "foods to Remain n Louisiana Area FERRIDAY, La,, Feb. 21-H/1V™ lood waters in East-central Louisina won't start falling for four r .six weeks, it was predicted yes- erday.

Rab- Inowltz's one-room stamp sales office In New Vork City, The officers made the search after arresting RabSnowllz on a warrant chargln him with selling four altered postage stamps. While the officers had n warrant for his nr- rcst. they did not have a search warrant. Rabinowlt?. objected but the officers went ahead. The government charged that Rnbinowitz was implicated in a scheme to defraud stamp collectors by ceiflng stamps on which "overprints" had been forged. Overprints are scarce and thus have an extra value. Rabinou-iU was convicted In federal district covrt on both charges. He was ^iven a year's imprisonment on the stamp sale charge and was fined S1.000 on the charge of possessing altered stamps. Later the U.S. Circuit Court in New York dismissed the possession charge, holding the search was unlawful under the Constitution's ban aeninst unreasonable searches and seizures.

The bright lights were off last night in the fourth postwar brownout. Statewide restriction on electric slKns—part of an emergency program to conserve dwindling coal supplies—went into effect yesterday noon. But not until nightfall were the dismal effects fully noticeable. Police officials said that a midnight check showed the brownout almost 100 per cent effective in limes Square and other parts of mid town Manhattan, Unofficial surveys showed compliance was spotty in various other parts of the city. Broadway crowds—who have had periince with strict climouts in wartime and brownouts during strikes in vital mdusi.ries—appeared little affected by the new restriction.
