To grow a satisfactory crop of ul

0esary to plant the seed early h

[lead of Family. tiets $2,000 3e
Single persons, though required
to file a return if their net income p9
for 1920 was $1,000 or more, are WC
if they are the heads of families, Se
granted a special exemption un
der the revenue laws. Such a du
person is defined by Treasury reg- Ja
ulations as "a person who actual- OV
ly supports and maintains in one Wi
household one or more individu- thi
als who are closely connected bo
with him by blood relationship, Al
relationship by marriage or by iZ
adoption, and whose right to ex- Bo
cess family control and provide Fr
for these dependent individuals is er.
based upon some moral or legal W(
obligation." Such persons are Ai
allowed the exemption of $2,000 P
granted a married person. In ad. an
dition, they are allowed a credit ii
of $200 for each dependent under t
18 years of age or incapable of tI
self-support beoause mentally or ti
physically defective. t
A married person living with to
husband and wife can not claim to
an additional $2,000 exemption as Ii'
the head of a family. His or her
exemption is based upon the mar- i.
ital status, irrespective of the be
support of others living in the r
same household. The additional wi
$200 credit for dependents does b`
not apply to the husband or wife th
of a taxpayer. For example, if a la
married man supports a father th
who is incapable of self-support, of
he is entitled to the $200 credit for Ti
such person. If through force of F
circumstancedT he supports his G
wife away from home he is en
titled to the $2,000 exemption al- of
lowed a married person, but not et
to a $200 credit for a dependent,
A son who has left home but P'
who sends his mother more than hi
one-half the sum required for her ai
support is entitled to the $200 h
credit, provided the mother can w
not support herself, Otherwise, e
the amount must be considered as
gift, and therefore, the credit is r
not allowed. A son living at T
home and supporting his father, 1
mother, or other relatite tay 0
claim the $2,000 exemption al- 0
lowed the-head of a family, but lc'
not the $200 credit unless such
a relative is under 18 years of age or
incapable of self-support.
