Income Taxes for 1917.

to the treasury department lndlcato
the government will collect $1100,000,
000 In Income taxes during the current
year, or about two and one-half times

months. Internal revenue receipts
nro expected to exceed $700,000,000,
an increase of nearly $200,000,000.
The time for filing income returns
expired March 1. Most of tho In
crease Is due to the higher rato of tax
ation. Collections actually made up to
tho present aggregate about $125,000,
