Twelve -BlythevlUe (Ark.) Courier Newa - Thursday, January 8, Cut Your Taxes! HERE'S HELP IN FILING RETURN By RAY DE CRANE Newspaper Enterprise Assn. About the Author Each Jaxpayer should know the income tax laws. He should neither underpay nor overpay the amount due. The government expects him to take advantage of every legitimate break he can get in the tax laws and thus, in effect, cut his own taxes through familiarity with the regulations. This is the contention of Ray De Crane, author of this series and for 25 years he has been advising the public on avoiding errors in the annual return and taking every advantage granted under the law. He has written a unmber of books on the subject. The Internal Revenue Service honored him with their 1966 Meritorious Public Service award for his clear and concise explanations of the regulations. Several million Americans who never in their liefe have had to file an income tax return will be wrestling with the the first time In 1967. The thousnds of U.S. servicemen in Viet Nam who have young wives at home will be seeking answers to tax questions they hadn't dreamed of just a year ago. Do they get any special credit for combat service? How do you get a signature on a tax form from an infantryman waging guerrilla war against the Viet Cong? And how bout you 65 million other taxpayers who are becoming old hands at this annual routine? Will you be filing your 1966 income tax return in identical fashion to the one you completed a year ago? You had better not if any of these events occurred in your family last year: — A birth, a death, a marriage involving you or any of your children. — You or your wife turned 65. — You had unusual medical expenses. — You sold your home. — Money was made or lost in the stock market. — You made contributions toward the support of a parent. — You retired on pension or started to receive Social Security payments. — There was a separation or divorce. — You moved and changed jobs. — How these factors — and many more — can affect your return will be covered in this series of 14 articles of. which complexities of Form 1040 for this is the first. Needs Night Out -/tviqaii Van KJU, ren ••iniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiDinniiiiiiiiiHiiM DEAR ABBY: We are just or-. dinary people. My husband has a 9 to 5 job and I am only a housewife. We have been married for 10 years and in all that time we have never gone anywhere without taking our children (we have three). I have never had one night away from home except those few when I went to the hospital to have another baby. We have never hired a sitter. Never needed one. My husband said the children grow up so fast we should enjoy every moment we can with them. I love my children, Abby, but don't you think I deserve a night out without the children just once a year? STALE MATE DEAR MATE: Your husband forgets that you "enjoy" your children all day, everyday when he is at work. Remind him. I think you not only "deserve" an ocasional night out, but you NEED one. DEAR ABBY: My mother passed away early in November after a lingering illness. She knew she was dying and her last wish was that my sister's son go ahead and get married on the scheduled date which will take place in about three weeks. My question: Do you think my three sisters and I should attend the wedding in our mourning clothes? And should we dance? IN MOURNING DEAR IN: Don't sadden an otherwise happy occasion by apcaring in mourning clothes. (Your mother wouldn't have wanted you to.) Dress as you normally would for a wedding, but don't dance. DEAR ABBY: Last Sunday my husband and I were at my mother's when my in - laws dropped in unexpectedly o n their way home from church. My husband was watching something on TV. Everyone gathered in the living room and started talking. My husband's mother asked him to turn down the TV. He turned it down a little and drew his chair up closer to it and continued to watch while his parents, my mother and I shouted to make our- selves heard above the TV program. Finally his mother walked over to the set and turned it off. With that, my h u s b a n d stomped out of the house in a huff and took of in his car. What do you think of a 24- year-old man acting like that? ASHAMED DEAR ASHAMED: I would say that in this case rudeness was an inherited trait. DEAR ABBY: I became widowed suddenly and have suffered severely from the shock of losing a truly perfect partner after nearly 50 years. What upsets me more than I can say is having someone come up to me in a public place and say, "I am so sorry about your loss. I meant to send you a note, or I have been meaning to pay you a visit, but - blah, blah, blah," and then a long list of lame excuses follow. If people don't think enough of you to write a note, or to pay a call, they should just say "hello," and not mention your "loss" or their good intentions at all. RECENT WIDOW Troubled? Write to Abby, Box 69700, Los Angeles, Cal., 90069. For a personal reply, enclose a stamped, self - addressed envelope. For Abby's booklet, "How to Have a Lovely Wedding,' send $1.00 to Abby, Box 69700. Los Angeles, Cal., 90069.

IF YOUR CHILD IS BORN TODAY ... he, or she, will be one of those interesting persons who talks very little, but actually the mind is ever busy figuring out how to make headway and with the least amount of effort, or how to improve on present systems. A more direct approach has to be learned early and the best outlet here is some profession where the nvesligaliye is a major factor.
