Mr. ' 1 ito'Min adds that this method could be ' lowed wltti perfect safety to the flov merit, an the man's expenses could be chci kl up at the end of the year and verllled wltti his return In tho same man 'er 1 hat tils exemption of J3.000 could be terlflod. 'I in exemption provision, which Is ' 'ihlrMiino to many persons, In mndo rer by several explanations. The first 1 iii 1 tho casn of 1111 until in led In ihlil ivhiisii Income of fli.nnu Is en 'y from bonds. Under Ihn law hn Is taxable, yet unless n plan nf Idcntl- li ailon was adopted -f 10 -would fc.d. ducted from his Income nnd he would have tn apply for refunds.

Thus It Is entirely at tho option of tho Individual where ho claims the exemption. If he has n salary nnd hla bonds are tax free ho can claim the benefit of ex emption from his employer, ns tho cor poration which Issued his bonds pays the tax on thorn. Although this Is hardly fair to the corporation, there Is no way of avoiding It ns the law now stands. The Individual who lias an Incomo of J MOO tax exempt bonds, however, should not fall to claim exemption Just tho same, a nil certificates become Uovornment record, and If exemptions are not claimed on them the (Jovcrnmcnt will Infer that exemption lias been claimed (that tho person h.n a taxaulo Income kb a result he will be asked to explain by tho Uovornment why he hns not filed a return.
