Your Income Tax NO. 16 Capital Gains And Losses The term "capital assets" is defined as the property held by the taxpayer (whether or not connected with his trade or business), but does not include stock in trade of the taxpayer or property of a kind which would properly be included in the inventory of the taxpayer if on hand at the close of the taxable year, or property held by the taxpayer primarily for sale to customers in the ordinary course of his trade or business, or property, used in the trade or business, of a character which is subject to the allowance for depreciation. Capital gains and losses are classified as "short-term" (applicable to capital assets held for 18 months or less) and "long-term" (applicable to capital assets held for more than 18 months). Such gains and losses are taken into consideration in the percentages shown on the return, aased upon the period of time during which the assets were held. Short-term capital losses are allowable only to the extent of short- term capital gains. However, any net short-term capital loss (not in excess of the net income for the :axable year) may be carried over to the succeeding year and applied against the short-term capital gains not already cffset by short-term capital losses in such year. The carryover is restricted to one year. In the case of a net long-term capital gain or loss, an alternative :ax is imposed with respect to a gain if such tax is less than the normal tax and surtax on net income, and in the event of a loss, such alternative tax is imposed if greater than the normal tax and surtax on net income. VVrjere a tax- layer derives a net long-term capital gain and computes his tax under section 117(c) (1), relating to alter- native taxes, the base for determining the 15 per cent limitation on the charitable contributions deduction provided by section 23(o) and the earned income credit provided by section 25(a) (3) is "net income". ; Where a taxpayer sustains a net long-term capital loss and computes his tax under section 117(c) (2), the base for determining the charitable contributions deduction is "ordinary net income," that is '-'net income" plus the amount of the net long-term capital loss, and the base for determining the earned income credit is "ordinary net income" as adjusted for the charitable contributions deduction.

Morris, 19, Phoenix criminals who escaped from an Arizona prison farm last September 23, have been committed to the Arkansas State Penitentiary for long terms for a series of offenses in that state, J.
