HUNT &-COMPANY.

In the returns of married per sons must be- included the net in come ti both husband and wife and dependent minor children. Husband and wifd may make a joint return or separate returns. They receive 3j2 or $2,000 as the case may be. If P thev make separate returns the exemptions may be taken by either or divided between them. The ex emption of-$400 for a dependent may be claimed only by the one who furnishes ' the dependent's chief support., ' The taxpayers status on the last day of the taxable year December 31, 1922 if made on the calendar year basis determines the amount of his exemptions and credits. If married and living with wife or husband on that flay the exemption is $2,500 -or $2,000, according to the 'amount of net income. , , If single and without dependents on that day he may claim but $1,000 as his exemption, even though he may, have been married or the head jpf a family during the greater part of tne year. Widowers, widows, di vorcees and persons separated by mutual consent are classed as single persons. ... ! , , The Bureau of Internal t Revenue is preparing to send into each coun ty in the United States revenue offi cers who will aid taxpayers in mak ing out their returns. Similar ser vices will be offered city residents'. But the bureau's advice before seeking uch assistance is to read carefully the instructions. Unless the problem is particularly complex, studv of the form will enable 'the ( taxpayer, to make a correct return. The normal rate of tax pf 4 per cent on the first $4,000 of net in come and 8 per cent on the re- ! maining net income above the ex emption repaains unchanged. ( Sur tax rates which apply only to in comes, in excess" of $6,000 are low ered, ranging forUhe calendar year 1922 from 1 per cent on the am ount of net income between $6,000 and $10,000 to 50 per cent, on the amount by which the net income ex g i ceeds $200,000. For the year 1921 W) the surtax rates ranged from 1 pr S ' cent on the amount of net income ! between $5,000 and $6,000 to 65 ,W. Casey, L. F. Shook, C. Consolini, R. G. R. Minacci, L.

This was apparently in advertently left out of the law, nnd the "'commissioner says that there should be a distinct determination as to just what may or may not be done under the marker. TJie sug gestion offered is that the marker and fees be graded, and that there be an unlimited marker by which the dealer may ' do ' anything h pleivses and for which he pays a higher fee, and a limited marked by which he may only demonstrate a car, and the demonstration of the car must be defined so that thre will be no escape from, the April Icaticn of the definition. s' The gasoline tax is commended at a success. Certain exemptions are recommended, however. The pro fessional oysterman . or , fisherman who uses hia boat for the gathering of oysters or sea products ought to ' be exempt from payment of the tax on his fuel, in the opinion of the commissioner. The fanner who plows his fields for agricultural pur poses ought to be exempted. Un der the present law, no fuel used in any motor boat is oxwpti nnd it I suggested that .the law be chan--od to that tie motor bn; user may henefU in productivebui'r.urs whore he uses fuel.

It is noted that Lieutenant .Talbot 0. Freerrian, a qualified aviator with large experience, has been appointed aviations inspector of the depart ment . ; Several of the other activities of the , department wich - have been told of in the newspapers from tirne to time are reviewed in the report withthe commlssorier's conclusions.
