Your Money's Worth
How You Can Save Money on Your Income Tax—lX
By Sylvia Porter
Knowing the key tax angles
involved In home ownership can
save you money.
Or if you received money as a
gift or as a beneficiary under a
life insurance policy last year
you also are in a special tax class.
Knowledge of the tax angles here
is equally important to you.
QUESTION: I own my own
home. Although X earn less than
$5,000 a year, can I file Form
1040A too and take the standard
10 per cent deduction? I’m won
dering if I’ll lose money by so
ANSWER: As a homeowner,
Circular On Raquaat
Jones, Kreeger & Hewitt
Member. New Tort Stock Exch.n.e
Cofritz Bldg. Dl. 7-5700
1625 EYE ST. N.W.
the chances are a thousand to
one you’ll loee money if you file
1040A and take just the standard
10 per cent deduction. In most
cases, people like you would save
on taxes by tiling Form 1040 and
Itemizing all your deductions. No
matter what your income tax
bracket, if you have a lot of de
ductions, you should at least
work out your tax status on each
of the forms and see which will
place you in the best tax position.
For instance, say you earn
$4,800 a year, are married, have
two children and own your
home. In 1954, you paid prop
erty taxes on your home of S2OO,
mortgage interest of $250, you
contributed about S2OO to your
church and had other deductions
totaling S2BO. By Itemizing your
deductions instead of using the
tax table applicable to incomes
under $5,000 »< which allows you
approximately 10 per cent de
ductions) you will pay about S9O
less In taxes—quite a saving in
QUESTION: I sold my house
at a loss in 1954. Can’t I deduct
that loes on my income tax re
ANSWER: No. You cannot
deduct it If you sell property
devoted to your personal use at
a loss, you do not have a tax
QUESTION: Our property is
i in my wife’s name, but I paid
; the real estate taxes in 1954.
Do I get a deduction?
ANSWER: Only if you file a
joint return with her this year.
QUESTION: My grandfather
died in 1954 and left me $2,000.
Do I owe any tax on this money?
ANSWER: No. You do not
pay a tax on property you get
by inheritance, gift or bequest.
; But once you own that property
