APRIL 1 LAST DAY
FOR FEDERAL RETURNS
Penalties for Income Dodgers Are
Severe—Get Your Return
in if You Are Liable.
April 1, 1918, 1* tbe final day al
lowed under .the federal income tax
lew for the filing of federal income
tax returns. Persons who are requir
ed to llle returns under the provisions
of lew and who fall to get their re
turns in on time are subject to se
vere penalties, as follows:
For making false or fraudulent re
turn, not exceeding $2,000 or uot ex
ceeding one year's imprisonment, or
both. In the discretion of the court,
and. In addition, 100 per cent, of the
tax evaded.
For falling to make return on time,
not less than S2O nor more than sl,-
000, and. In addition, 00 per cent, of
the amount of tax due.
If on account of illness or absengo
from home you are unable to render
your return within the time prescribed
by law you may obtain an extrusion
of 30 days If u request filed
with the collector of your district be
fore the due date of th'j return.' 14,
this request you must state the rea
son why the return cannot be filed
within the time prescribed by law.
Collectors of internal revenue are
not authorized to gruut extensions of
more than 30 days, but the commis
sioner of Internal revenue has author
ity ro grant u reasonable extension
beyond 30 days In meritorious cases.
If you desire an extension of more
than 30 days your request should be
addressed to the commissioner and
should contain a detailed statement
covering the reasons which make it
Impossible for you to file your return
on or before April 1.
The Internal revenue men are now
completing their tour of the country,
during which they were in touch with
the people of every city and town. If
you failed to get in touch with the
deputy which visited s our section it Is
not too late to get advice. Consult
your postmaster as to where the near
est deputy Is now. Get your blank
form, study the directions and the re
quirements as shown thereon and
make your return without fall If your
income was sufficient to come within •
the bounds named In the law.
It Is pointed out hy Commissioner
Roper that it is important that the
people comply with (he federal
as fully as they are complying withy
the drafts for men and the conserva
tion of foods and fuel. “The war must
be paid for," aaya Commissioner Roper.
“Congress has as much right to cen
script a Just portion of Income as It
has to conscript our boys. The
for 1017 in designed to reach moder
ate as well as large incomes, so that
all persons who are In financial posi
tion to bear a portion of the Wavs
government expenses can be a&%aed
In proportion to their ability to pay
“The man who Is barely making s
living or barely supporting a family
’la not affected by the 1917 law. But
the man who Is able to bear a share
of the burden has been reacts | by
the new law. and he should accept his
responsibility In the same patriotic
spirit that our young men have shown
In offering themselves for tills great
purpose of the country to make the
world safe for people of all kinds to
live In and to govern themselves."
This tnx Is one which recognizes
women as on nn equal basis with men.
The unmarried woman or the married
woman sdth u salary must make tax
return just itfe same ns any man. Only
the woman supporting her mother or
other members of her family may take
out $2,000 exemption.
Under the law the head of the fnml- '
ly Is the one whose earning power con
tributes to the family's support.
Similarly a widow with small chil
dren to support can take out $2,000
exemption and S2OO additional excmp<w
tlon for each of her children under*
eighteen. Thus It Is Intended that
the lsw shall work no Jiurdshlp to wo
men having to straggle to get along.
But each must file return If her In
come Is SI,OOO.
A man whose wife dies and who Is
left with small children to support
upon a moderate Income may also take '•
full exemption under the new tnx law
and also claim S2OO exemption for
each of hla children under eighteen.
The widower under the law Is s
single man and must make tax re
turn accordingly. Murrled men need ¥
not file returns unless they arc earn
ing $2,000 or more.
••This Is as much a national obliga
tion ns the reporting for duty of a man
drafted for service with the colors,"
says D. C. Roper, commissioner,;/ in
ternal revenue. "As It standi; 4t Is
much a matter of the man or wo
man's own conscience. It is for him
or for her to determine Just how far
he Is liable to the tnx. lie must figure
his own Income and reaches the
figures named In the law must innkf
faithful report upon It to the proper
authority.
"This tax Is distinctly a war meas
ure and will b# In effect during tlie
war. f
"This Is a people's tnx—lt reaches
right down Into the pockets of the
■mall wage earner; It makes him s
partner In the Job of winning the
I war."
