(/Pi—In making out your 1949 income tax return you may wonder how much to deduct for the 2 percent Illinois sales taxes you paid during the year. As In previous years, the Chicago Retail Merchants Association suggests "reasonable" deductions for average low income taxpayers The following chart, unchanged since 1943, Is an unofficial guide. The collector of Internal revenue doesn't necessarily accept It. But It Is believed to meet his definition of "reasonable deductions." That means he probably would accept your figure, based on the char., without asking you to prove It by showing sales slips or receipts. The chart doesn't go Into higher Income brackets because those taxpayers are not easily generalized. Their purchases are more varied. Mar. 1 Mar.'_' Mar.
