If you were a married person
on December 31, 1953, you are
considered married for the entire
year 1953. If youiwere divorced
or legally separated on or before
December 31, you are considered
single for the entire year. If your
wife or husband died during the
year, you are considered married
for the entire year.
If husband and wife have separ
ate income (for example, if both
work), they may file sheparate re
turns or a joint return. A separate
return accounts for the exemp
tions, income and deductions of
only one person. If married per
sons living in community property
states file separate returns, each
must report half of any commu
nity income. A joint return must
include all the exemptions, income
and deductions of both husband
and wife. A husband and wife
may file a joint return even though
one of them had no incom. A
joint return may not be filed if
either husband or wife was a non
resident alien at any time during
the taxable year.
How to Make a Separate Return
To file separate returns, husband
and wife must each have income
under the laws of their state and
they must fill out separate forms.
The "split income" provisions of
the federal law do not apply to
separate returns. When filing sep
arate returns, the husband and
wife should each claim the deduc
tions for those allowable expenses
pain wun nis or ner own funds.
(In community property states, de
ductions resulting from payments
made out of funds belonging joint
ly to husband and wife may be di
vided half and half.) If one item
izes and claims actual deductions,
instead of using the tax table or
the ' "standard deduction," then
both must itemize and claim actual
deductions on Long-Form 1040 returns.
How to Make a Joint Return
You can make a joint return bv
including all exemptions, income
and deductions of both husband
and wife. In the heading of the
return, list both names (for exam
ple: "John H. and Mary D. Doe").
Both must sign the return.
Advantages of a Joint Return
The present law usually makes
it advantageous for married
couples to file joint returns. The
law provides a "split income"
method of figuring the tax on a
joint return which often results in
a lower tax than-would result from
separate returns. If you make a
joint return on Form 1040A, the
District Director will figure your

Form 1040 either the short or long

Joint Tax or Refund .
When husband and wife sign a

other must pay it. If they are en

Rets weaker and must be amplified or "boosted" at intervals.
It used to take some rather bulky electronic equipment to do this.
But., today, a man can easily hold in his two hands more of these
voice-boosters than were once contained in each of the tall panda
pictured above. The smaller units are now in use in many places in
the West as part of a plnn we call "miniaturization." This is a pro

takes less space, does a better job and costs less to install. Such
