For failure to make a report to the
internal revenue colleotor at Omaha
relative to their income, at least two
Lincoln county telephone companies
have been assessed a fine of fifty dollar
each. Both these are neighborhood
lines, with a revenue of probably leBS
than fifty dollars u year, yet they are
incorporated and as a corporation they
must make a report, no matter how
little their revenue. The members of
both companies claim that they did not
receive income tax notices or blanks,
and supposed that a company with net
earnings of less than $4,000 per year
did not need report.
