State St 5-6 ASK EMPLOYERS TO READ UP ON SOCIALSECDRITY Because of the fact that some employers are sending remittances to Washington for the payment of tax and wage deductions in connection with the old-age benefit system under the Social Security Act, assistance in clearing jip this misunderstanding has been asked of The Upper Des Koines. All tax payments and wage deductions in connection with the old- age benefit system under the Social Security Act should be sent to the Bureau of Internal Reveune and should be mailed to the office of the Bureau nearest the business address of the employer. The office of the Collector for the State of Iowa is in Des Moines. All remittances should be made payable to the Collector of Internal Reveune, and not to any individual nor to the Social Security Board. These taxes and wage deductions are to be returned to the Bureau of Internal Revenue monthly, on or before the last day of the succeed' ing month. In other words, the taxes for January must be paid on or before the last day of February; the taxes for February are payable on or before the last day of March, and so on. All necessary tax forms can be secured from the offices of the Bureau of Internal Revenue. All questions regarding the taxes should be directed to the offices of that Bureau and not to the Social Security Board. Down they go! In the face of rising tire prices.
