Your Income Tax NO. 11 Gross Income, Net Income, Surtax Net Income And : In computing a federal income • tax, the taxpayer is confronted with • the problem of ascertaining, (1) his : gross income, (2) his net income, :' and (3) his surtax net income. The : Instructions which accompany the : forms clearly and explicitly set out : how this is done. If, after reading • them carefully, the taxpayer does •: not understand them, he should • consult the nearest collector of in; ternal revenue. : Gross income, generally, is all in: come derived in any taxable year '' from any source whatever, unless • specifically exempt'by;law. In any • usual business, the gross income of • the person operating it consists of ;' the gross profits on sales, plus any : income from investments and inci- " dental or outside operations or ; sources. The income tax return • must show the exact condition of ; the business—gross sales, purchases, I and the cost of the goods sold, and ; the inventories at the beginning i and end of each taxable year. I In the case of professional men— : a lawyer, a physician, an architect, ; a surgeon, a dentist, a clergyman, ; a writer, or any other—the gross ; income must include all fees, sal- I aries, and compensation of any kind ' received for prqfessionad services. •' Amounts received from the Com;. modity Credit Corporation shall, at ; the option of the taxpayer, be con: sidered as income and shall be in- I. duded in the gross income for the • taxable year in which they were • received. If the option was exer- ; cised for any taxable year which :• began in 1939, it shall be adhered 1 to with respect to all subsequent '. taxable years unless the commis- ; isoner of interne'. revenue approves • a change to a different method. ; Net income is the gross income 1 less the deductions allowed by law. :: The long-continued and varying ex:• perience of the bureau of internal • • revenue shows that numerous er- ;. rors are made by taxpayers in their ;'. income tax returns due to their : failure to understand clearly what ' deductions from gross income and : what credits against net income are j allowable. The taxpayer, in his own • interest, is urged to read over the ;.' instructions on the forms until he j understands them, before he makes ; out his return. Legal deductions in-' ; elude business and professional ex-| : penses, such as salaries, pensions,' • and bonuses to employees, taxes,; • losses, interest, bad debts, deprecia- j ; tion, depletion, contributions, and| ;. similar items definitely set out in ; the instructions. : An earned income credit of 10 : per cent of the earned net income : not in excess of 10 per cent of the ; net income, is allowed, in addition ; to the personal exemption and ;' credit for dependents, if any, for ; the purpose of computing the'nor- ; mal tax. : • Surtax net income is the balance - left after deducting exemptions and \g™. y*. n * ' n »me.
