MJ- and Mjrs Lester Larson visited Mrs Christine Fox oi Britt Saturday evening. Mrs In previous articles in this series it has been pointed out the wage reporting and social security tax remitting responsU bility many farm operators must meet by Jan. 31. This applies to all of them who paid as much as $100 cash wages to any one agricultural employee in the calendar year 1955. ., Right npw we want to define! "agricultural, labpr" US-the term 'applies to social' security'.undez; the old-age arid survivors insurance program. The definition includes services performed on 9 farm in connection with the raising and harvesting of products and the raising, etc. of livestock, poultry, bees, fur-bearing animals and wildlife; services in the care of the employer's farm and equipment if performed for the most part on a farm; services performed in handling, processing, or packaging agricultural commodities produced in major part by the employer; and domestic service in or about the household of the employer if performed on a farm operated for profit. If you operate an agricultural enterprise—either as sole owner or in a partnership—and you paid any one employee as much as $100 cash wages to perform agricultural labor in 1955, you have an obligation to meet before the end of January. Specifically, you must fill out Internal Revenue Service Form 943, "Employer's Tax and Information Return for Agricultural Employees," and remit the social security tax, to the Director of Internal Revenue, Des Moines, la. The amount of the tax is 4 percent; it applies to each of your agricultural employees to whom you paid casjh wages of $100 or more in the year. If you paid an employee more than $4,200 in the year, report only $4,200 paid to that employee. If you paid wages for any services other than agricultural labor, do not report such wages on Form 943. Please bear in mind that the regularity of the employee's work for you is not a consideration. You may employ him part time or for a short period of time; you may engage him by the day, week, or month. It is the amount of cash wages paid him during the year*that determines whether you have an obligation to report wages and pay the social security tax. In conclusion I want to point out that the cash wages you report on Form 943 are credited to the worker's social security account. The Social Security Administration maintains individual accounts for every person —employed or self-employed—in work that counts toward old-age and survivors insurance. Through the proper reporting of taxable wages to your employee's account in January, just as by your proper reporting of your net earnings to your social security account by April 15, both you and he are building old-age and survivors insurance protection for yourselves and your families in your later years and for your dependents in case of your death. Fox is recuperating from a brcn ken hip in her home. Mr and Mrs Philip Lee and three children will move next week into buildings on a farm 3 miles e*st of Granada, Mian. The Arnold Lallier family of AJgon§ will move on the Ferstl f vacated by the Lee family.
