10—Ukiah Dally Journal, uilah, Calif. Wednesday, January 25, 1978 Get your records together now for tax returns With the holidays just a memory, California taxpayers are preparing for another , annual ritual . — the preparation of their state income tax return. While few consider it a reason to be jolly, preparing a return can be considerably less onerous if taxpayers start now to gather their records, according to the Franchise Tax Board. Whether a taxpayer itemizes or takes the standard deduction, certain documents are essential, for example, the Form 540 income tax return for residents or the Form 540NR for nonresidents or people who arrived here after Jan. 1, 1977. Every wage earner must have his or her employer's report of wages paid, the W-2. The department has mailed 8.3 million forms to Californians who filed tax returns last year. In addition,'660,000 postcards were sent to taxpayers who indicated last year , that they did not require the regular state forms. "These are mostly people whlo have their returns prepared by practitioners and who' use their own forms almost identical to and acceptable to the department," according to Assistant Executive Officer James Gentz. Some persons will not receive the tax form or a postcard through the mail, including newcomers to California and those filing a return for the first time'. All the department's district offices will have forms available as will many banks and savings and loan companies, most post offices and other state offices, Gentz said. Employers must deliver W-2 forms and, by law, must have 'Battle of Algiers'to be screened After a short break to let everyone recuperate from the holiday season, the Magic Lantern Film Theatre will be starting a new series on Jan. »27 and 28. The first film will be the "Battle of Algiers." This film, which depicts the Algerian rebellion against the French won 11 International awards. The director, Gillo Pontecorvo, uses a documentary style to cover the mass scenes. These are intercut with moments of intimate personal drama, which underscore his belief that one's private life is affected by the greater historical drama of the times. The Battle of Algiers covers the period from 1954, when the governer closes off the Casbah (the Arab sector) until 1957, when the rebel headquarters are destroyed. An epilog sumnfarizes the events of the following five years that end in Algerian independence in 1962. Although the search for an adequate space which can be used on a regular basis has been the greatest obstacle to continuing efforts to present quality films in Ukiah, a new temporary home has been found for this film series, at the Financial-Federal Savings Bank, 700 S. State St, Ukiah. This season Magic Lantern will be working with some of the citizens of the Anderson Valley area to bring films to Boonville as well. Hopefully this combined effort will enable a larger segment of the county to view this season's films. Battle of Algiers will be shown Friday, Jan. 27 and Saturday, Jan. 28 in Ukiah, and qh Sunday, Jan. 29 at the Anderson Valley high school in Boonville. Ukiah showings will be at 8 p.m. and at 7:30 in Boonville. Donations, are $2. them available before the end of January. Taxpayers who want to file early should not Wait until then to assemble their records however,. Gentz said. State tax officials suggest ' taxpayers sort out their records on the basis of in-' formation called for by the tax return: ,' Filing status and dependents —Be prepared to^prov& your right to the head of household status if you claim eligiblity and to prove your right to claim certain dependents. Income— Have records showing any interest or dividend income received, rent, income or other miscellaneous payments. It's a good idea to' have paycheck stubs handy in case of a discrepancy in your W-2 form. Adjustments to income — you will need records for any disability expenses, moving expenses, certain employee, expenses and alimony payments, which, for the first time, is allowable -as' an adjustment to income. Itemized deductions —Get together your receipts for taxes,. records of charitable contributions, medical and dental expenses, interest' payments, and proof for any other allowable deduction. Credits —This includes payments for the care of a dependent child, receipts for installation of an approved solar energy device, credit for taxes paid to another state, and the water equipment tax credit.;' • . • • • Capital gains or losses— Taxpayers who claim these gains or losses, will need records of .investments, sales information and other related data. . , Taxpayers with business income need records to document their business costs. And finally,, taxpayers who need help should check their telephone directory for the number of the Franchise Tax Board.
