Cars are scarce on the high ways these days, not because people do not want to travel or cannot afford to but because four gallons of gas per week will not take them very far. Then, too, the larger trading centers are ex periencing the same handicaps in ob taining stocks as the smaller centers. Disappointment soon discourages one in the policy of trading away from home.

The federal income tax is, as the name implies, a tax levied upon incomes, and it is payable in rela tion to the amount of income.

Certain limited categor ies of income are however, tax exempt, and to the extent of such exemption are excluded in com puting the tax. ecause of exemptions rrom uie tax given to persons having less than certain stated amounts of in come, as well as because of vari ous deductions and credits allow able, only a small proportion of the number of persons receiving in come have until recently been sub ject to the tax. Thus, of the esti mated 55 million persons in this country who received income in one form or another during the cal endar year 1941, only some 26 mil lion persosns were required to file federal income tax returns for that year, while of these same 26 mil lion, more than 9 million were not taxable due to credits and deduc tions allowable. As a result of the lowering of exemptions, many more persons are now subject to the federal income tax than before, and for the calen dar year 1942 it is estiimated that more than 35 million persons will file federal income tax, who have never reported income be Tore for federal tox purposes, an under standing of the law and applicable regulations is of prme importance. An income tax return is a de claration on the part of the tax payer of his total taxable income for the year, together with the va rious deductions, exemptions, and credits to which he is entttled. It is in reliance upon voluntary disclos ures, and the integrity of tax pay ers generally, that the cost of ad ministration of the income tax can be qept at a minimum. Though the return is a voluntary statement, any person who willfully makes a re turn which he does not believe to be true and correct in every ma terial matter is subject to the pen alties provided by law. The first requirement of the law is the filing of an appropriate re turn. For individuals generally, this must be done by March 15 fol lowing the end of the calendar year. The return must be filed with the appropriate Collector of Inter nal Revenue for the disttrict in which is located the legal residence or principal place of business of the person making he return. Under the present law every single person, and every married person not living with husband or wife, having a total income (earn ings, together with other income) of $500 or more, and married per sons living with husband or wife throughout the taxable yer, who have an aggregate income (total earnings of both husband and wife, otgether with other income) of $1200 or more, regardless of the amount of net income, must file 8 return.
