A Federal Income Tax officer will be in Columbia, Jan 17th to 28Ui inclusive to give assistance and information to those who may not understand how to report to the Government their incomes and just how this tax is to be paid. An officer will also be at Casey Creek Jan 14th and 15th, and at Grady ville Jan. 29th and 30th. The Collector of Internal Revenue estimates that there will be 250 tax payers in this county. Returns of income for the year 1917 must be made on forms provided for tiie purpose before March 1, 191S. Re cause a good many people don't un derstand the law and won't know how to make out their returns the Govern ment is sending in this expert to do it for them. But the duty is on the taxpaer to make himself known to the Government If he doesn't make return as required before March 1 he may have to pay a penalty ranging from S20 to ?1,000, pay a fine or go to jail So if you don't want to take chances on going to jail you better call on the income tax man If jou are not sure about being subject to the tax, better ask him and make sure Whether you see the income tax man or not you must make return if subject to tax, Go to Church Times.
