Inventory Basis For Re
porting Farm Income
Thousands or dollars more than re
oulrcd were paid by Oregon rarmors
In ID ID lo the United States treasur
er in the form of iuconio taxes.
rather discomforting 'fact about this
was that such could have been avoid
ed if the fanner hud kept a complete
record or his btislnean and knowu
how to make out his reports.
In the last row years It Is unruly
eiitlmuted that nine out or ten farm
ers reported their Income on the mih
receipts and disbursements basis.
They should have used tho Inventory
method. It Is not necessary that a
farmer kuow his exact cost or pro
ducing n bushel of wheat or of rain
ing a nteer in order to jmo tho inven
tory plan. Tho inventory plnn as
now approved by tho federal treasury
department provides that tho farmer
may una "Tho farm value of livestock
and grain." This means that thu
farmers must keep records and no
founts, which practice ho should
adopt anyway.
llenortlng tho Income on tho in
ventory basin provides against doubl
ing up two ye,urn tnconio into one,
through tho holding over or crops
and livestock intended ror market.
This holding orton results In very
little, H any, net Income thu ono year
and an abnormally large net Income
the next year.
Since the rate or tax
llMltnounts up to $1000. 8 per cent or
the nmoiiuts between 5-1000 ana
SH00O uud a surtax of one per cent
on al. between $5000 and ?G00O. a
surtax of two per cent on the
iiinoiintH between $0000 and $S000.)
It can readily be seen that the farmer
Who reports his Income on u . cash
basis paya more taxes, often 50 or
100 per cent more, than If ho Includ
ed his Inventory values each year,
Some confusion may result when a
man chaugos from the cash plan of
reporting to tho inventory plan, but
with M little thought and with, the
klp which should he secured from
the field agent or tho internal reve
nun olllce, an adjustment can natla-
fartorlly be made.
The Income tax in in principal and
the present law 1b, In moat resPecta,
good. Some further regulations ror
Improvement will no doubt bo inr.do
within tho next two years. TI19 Ore
gon olllclaln of tho fccuenil Income
ta. olllco are supporting the college
in an effort to give fair uoutinont and
instructions to the farmers In his re
gard. Tlio farm management dlvi-
hIoii of tho collage extension service,
cooperating with the uovoral county
agricultural ugentH, will bo glad to
assist farmers In getting tholr farm
