Internal Revenue Bureau Rules
Payments Muet Be Made
by Companies.
By the Associated Press.
Social security taxes must be paid
on dismissal payments to employes,
the Internal Revenue Bureau ruled
The bureau said any sum given an
employe on the termination of his
employment was part of his wages.
Vacations and sick allowances also are
included in wages, the bureau added.
The dismissal pay question arose at
the result of a contract between an
unidentified .company and a labor
union which provides that the com
pany can not dismiss certain employes
unless it pays them a sum equal to a
certain number of weeks’ wages.
