MONDAY, MARCH 7, 1949 "" JHE NATION TODAY jiitial Payment on Estimated 'ax for 1949 Due at Same Time [is Final Payment on '48 Income 'EDITOR'S NOTE: This is Uic Hist, of 12 stories explaining who |isl do what, about his 1948 income tax return. The deadline Is March By James Mariow WASHINGTON. March 7. M'j-Tlie estimated tax return, What. Is WIio must, do something about It? Some people, besides filing their 1048 income tax return by March | and paying up any lax owed, must Abo by March 15 file an estimated tax return . . . it's called a Icclaration of estimated tax" . . on their 1949 income and pay oti lai, too. ^ ^^____ I Who's in this group? Two kinds people: Jl. Those, like landlords and doc|vs. who won't have any lax at I! withheld from their 1949 income. |2. Those, like waRp-earncrs and Ilarled people, wholl have some Is. but not the full tax for 1949. Iiihheld from their pay. 1 Because "estimate" means just It says, the people in the I'D groups must do this by March 11. Estimate that, tlicir 1949 income lilt be and what the tax on it • loiild be. 1-'. Then start paying—in four tn- lallments—The difference between •ie tax n-llhlicld from tlietn. It any • id the full tax they'll owe for •H9. The other payments are due • me 15. Sept, 15, and .Jan. 15, 1950. 1 The idea is to have everyone on I pay-as-you-go system. Those with IJ1 tax withheld from them, will e paid in full by the end of I Those who must make an esll- lated return and four instnllnient liymcnu should be paid up in full I'ound lh(; year's end, loo. I If you will make $600 or more • Us year, and no tax. is'withheld, liu must make an estimated re• un. I (Because that.'income is so low. |)U may not owe any tax or have • i make any payments. Still, you •lust make a return.} 1 If tax is regularly withheld from •iiir pay—but you'll gel more than •100 income from which no lax is ••ithheld—you must file B return |"d figure whether you have to • lake those installment payments. I Generally, employers withhold I ill lax on their employes' pay up J} $4,500, plus $600 lor each' ex• mption claimed. J_Example: Jones, single, will get •5,100 in salary. He doesn't have li file an estimate. Pull tax is witli- leld on the first $4,500 or his pav •nrt then he gets the next $600 as I is personal exemption. I But Smith, single, with a SO 000 •ilary, must tile an estimate and Tirt paying the difference between '-- tax withheld and the fun lax ' Adams, married, has $5.700 No Estimate for him. Full tax is withheld from him up to S4.500. Then • e gets S1.200 (n exemptions $000 |or himself. $600 for hi.s wife. Estimate* Due on March 15 If you're wondering what all |his means, do this: If you know what you get a week |r a month in pay and how much lax is being withheld from you |very week or month. J So [igure how much pay you'll |:et this year and how much'tax will K withheld from it. Then—previous stories explained •low to do It—figure what your full • ax on your income for the year fhould be. If you find you'll owe more tax I han will be withheld from you Ihen you must rile an estimate 'and litart paying by March 15 the first • if the four installments on Ihe •Jiffcrence between the (ax withheld find the full tax owed. File your estimate on form IHMO-ES. It's a very brief f orm .. m blue ink. On the tack |)f it arc tiie same table and formula you used with Ihe 1040 long or l-hort forms in figuring i- O iir 1018 |:ax. Be sure in figuring your estimated |tax that you claim all your ex- wnptions and the standard cleduc- gftns explained in previous stories. ~ y And when you hand over, or mail, •your estimated return to the intcr- • nal revenue collector, enclose with •it the first of the four payments ou •any estimated tax you o\ve. 3 State Police Officers Quit After Probe LITTLE ROCK, March 7. lip,Three Arkansas and two Oklahoma stale policemen have resigned or been suspended after an Inve.stlRn- tion |p involving ~H< luor „„„ gl ,,^.
