Rain will aid the late corn but most of the ripening fruits and grains are.blasto e~l. A Withholding Receipt, showing total wages paid and total income tax withheld during the year, is re- quired by law to be furnished by each employer to each of his em- Floyees on or before January 31. The form of the Withholding Receipt has been revised to include the necessary questions and instructions that will permit most employees'to use it as a return. This form of return may be used by anyone whose ;total income in 1944 was less than $5,000 in wages and not more than $100 in other forms ,such as dividends and inter- est. A taxpayer using his With- holding Receipt for his return will fill it in and mail it to his local col- lector of internal revenue by March 15, 1945. The collector will figure his tax, give him credit for the tax already paid and send him either a bill or a refund for the difference. A special feature of the new form solves the problems of many hus- bands and wives as to .whether to file separate or joint returns. If theI combined income of a husband and wife permits use of the new form they may combine their returns on one receipt,-and the collector wilt f!gure their tax on either their com- bined or separate incomes, which- ever is to their advantage. The tax on this form will be fig- ured by bhe collector from a table that automatl~ally allows about 10 percent of the employee's total in- come for charitable contributions, in- terest, taxes, medical expenses, etc. Therefore. the Commissioner of In- ternal Revenue states, employees should not list deductions for such expenses on their Withholding Re- ceipt. However, an employee whose expenses for these purposes exceed- ed 10 percent of his total income may claim his deductions in detail. .Printing of the new form of With- holding Receipts has begun, but it may take a few" months before all employers receive their supplies. The new form is being printed in tripli- cate. The employer gives the em- ployee the first two copies and sends the third to the office of the collec- tor in that district. The first Copy marked "Original", may ,be filled oBt by the employee and mailed in as his return. The second copy, mark- ed "Employee's Copy", or "Dupli- cate", is to be retained by the em- ployee for his o,~n personal records.
