[Maryland's Income Tax
'Short Form ‘ Return Is Easiest
But Not Always the Cheapest

both short and long methods to

maximum of SSOO consisted of

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

Deductions may be itemized
