form was written especially tor
people like Jones, who haven't
large incomes or complicated busi
ness affairs. On this form, you
don’t have to figure deductions and
things like that because- the form
gives you credit for an average a
mount of them.
If you" are like Jones* maybe it
would help you with your own in
I come tax return to see how ht> did
it, step by step, (see above)
First, Jones saved himself a lot
of trouble by reading the instruc
tions and the form carefully. Sec
ond, Jones made it easy by getting
together the figures he would need.
Here are the figures he collected:
a. The amount of his 1943 wag
es and the amount of income tax
and victory taken o’-t of his wag
es by his employer.
He got both of these figures
from hjs employer on a receipt.
(Form W-2) which the law says
you'r employer must g»ve you.
b. The amount of his other in
come. Jones had some money in
a savings account and he made a
note of how much interest the hank
paid or credited him last year.
c. The amount of nis 1942 tax
and how much he paid on it. Jon
es copied these figures from the I
slip (Form 1125) which was mailed j
him by the Collector of Internal I
Now. Jones was ready t° fill out
| his return. He put down his name>
' address, occupation and social se
NOw let’s follow, what he did ac
cording to the numbers on the re
Item 1—That’s wagv« and other
kidns of pay. Jones -arned $50 a
week last year, working as a Clerk
for the Henry Smit hoompany in
his home town. Of course, there
were a lot of tihngs such as war
bonds, taxes, and union dues de
ducted from his pyacheck every
week, but Jones had to put down
the full amount of his wages which
came to $2,600, opposite the name
of his employer.
Item 2—Here he put down the
$25 interest he received on his sav
ings. Incidentally, Jones owns
war bonds, t°o, but unless you o
lect to accrue bond interest on war I
bonds until you cash them or they
Item 3—He added the $2,600 an 1
| the *?5.
I Item 4—Jones has a young dau
ghter, named Mary, so he wrota
her name down and, as the form
directs, wrote his credit of $SS5
over in the money column.
Item 5—He subtracted the cvod
it he got for Mary from the 'ust.
zltem 6—He turned over the
form and looked over the boxes at
the top of the page to see which ;
one fit him. No. 4 was "it,” and
he put a check mark there. Tha:
meant that Jones would find iiis
income tax in column C of the ta
ble. Jone's figure in Item "• on
nhte front page was $2,249. He
looked in the table for a line where
that figure would fit. He found
a line which said ‘‘over $2,225 but ■
not over $2,250”, and then looked
across to Column C, where it said
$159. That is Jones’ income tax
and he wrote it in Item 6 on the
Item 7—This time, Jones had to
do some figuring at the bottom of
the back page, where It says “vic
tory tax.” On Une "a” he copied
the figure he had in Item 3 on the
other side, which was $2,625. On
line “b” he put his victory tax ex
emption of $624. Then he sub
tracted and put th defiefrence of
$2,001 on line ‘‘c”. Then Jones
noticed the twO-line table of per
centages, found the percentage
which fit him (married, one de
pendent). and put a circle around
it. His percentage was 2.9. lie
was a little rusty on decimals, so
he looked in the examples to see
how to multiply $2,001 by .029, and
again the examples helped him
move the decimal points around to
the right places. This arithmetic
showed him his victory tax was
$58.03, and he wrote that figure
in Tern 7 on the front page.
Item 8—He added the two taxes
together and found the tax on his 1
1943 income was $217.03.
Item 9—He already had made a
note of the fact that hjs income
tax for 1942 was $84.17, and he
wrote it down here.
Item 10—The fignire in item 8
was bigger than the figure in item
9. so he put the item 8 figure of
Item 11—Since the item 9 figure,
was smaller, he put that figure in
item 11-A. Next he had to figure
three-fourths of $84.17, which is;
