N.W. r [Maryland's Income Tax 'Short Form ‘ Return Is Easiest But Not Always the Cheapest ly the Associated Press I ANNAPOLIS, April 14.—The I “short-form” State income tax return is quickest, but it s not always cheapest. And (should you need encour agement) the controller's office Third of e Series. suggests you figure the tax by both short and long methods to determine which is more economi cal. | Any one may choose the regular, long-form, method. The optional. * or short-form, procedure is con fined to those who received no more than SIO,OOO, of which a maximum of SSOO consisted of investment income. It’s barred i i to any one in business for himself. For those eligible to use the abbreviated method, there’s a iclue to look for in judging whether I the long form would save money.! Involves Tax Table. The optional method involves tax tables. They appear on Page ( 2 of Form 502, which provides for pither system of calculating the tax. The tables are divided into brackets, which list the amount due by income groups of S2OO. If your taxable earnings just crawl into a bracket, better try the long form. For example, one bracket gives the tax on income from $3,000.01 to $3,200. The levy is an average for that range. Suppose your income subject to tax is $3,005. The straight 2 per cent charge; on earned income may cost you I less than the tax worked out for the table. The regular method allows you to multiply your income by the actual tax rate, without referring; to a table. j The optional method cuts cor ners for you. Its tables take into account your personal exemptions and deductions other than those tor dependents. Determine your personal exemption status from the blocks at the left of the tables. Then check the appropriate col umn for your tax. You already will have subtracted dependents’ credits. The tables take off 10 per cent for additional deductions, up to a ceiling of SSOO. For the most part. Maryland authorizes the same deductions as the Federal Government. You get credit for such things as steep | medical expenses, bad debts, fire losses not compensated by insur ‘ ance gifts to charity and other [ taxes. There’s a major exception in the other-tax allowance. You may' ■ not deduct income tax you paid ! the Federal Government. At the same time, Maryland 1 . grants you credit in many in- i 1 ■ stances for income taxes paid an i other state. If you’re liable for ' taxes elsewhere, contact the comp troller s office to learn whether there is reciprocity between the two States. It may save you a lot of trouble. May Itemize Deductions. Deductions may be itemized one-by-one on the long form. Or, ; you may simply take off 10 per cent of your gross income, up to SSOO, and enter the sum on line 13, page 3. This is the first year in I which the state has provided a| standard deduction for long-form! users. In following the regular method,' you’ll find the first SSOO of in ; vestment income is taxed at 2 per cent, the earned-income rate. The ! balance is taxed at 5 per cent. 1 There are a few variations, how ’ ever, in the levy on his type of income. Take an annuity. You pay on | only 3 per cent of what it cost you until the accumulated sum of the 1 difference between that percen tage and your annual receipts equals the total cost. Thereafter, all your income from the annuity is subject to tax, but at the 2 ;per cent rate. A pension toward which you contributed works the same way. except that you never pay more; than 2 per cent. Life insurance is not taxable. There's a hitch on page 3 of the ; return for some persons whose only income is from investments.' i If you're in this category, do this ( to take advantages of the grad-, uated rate: After you've entered your net income on line 16. skip down to line 18 and write in up to SSOO as, taxable at 2 per cent. Then en j ter the difference, if any. on line 17 as taxable at 5 per cent.
