You Can File Final
Return Jan. 31
YOU MAY TAKE advantage t>ds
year of an extra 15 days time to file
your final income tax returns.
Farmers and ranchers now
hare until Jan. 15, 1950, to file
their final income tax returns
for 1949, and if the lax is paid
in full by that time, they will
not need to file a declaration of
estimated lax.
Thomas M. Robinson, collector of
internal revenue, Helena, points out
that public law No. 378, 81st con
gress, approved Oct. 25, 1949,
amends section 60 (a) of the in
ternal revenue code and extends the
time for filing final income tax
returns for farmers from Jan. 15 to
Jan. 31.
Now, if you have been filing an
estimate of your income tax on Jan.
15 and then have filed a final
port by March 15, the change does
not affect you. You can still follow
>
re
that procedure.
But if you hare been avoiding
filing an estimate by making a
final report and payment
Jan. 15, the new ruling gives
you another 15 days, or until
Jan, 31 to file that report.
It is important to remember that
if you let Jan. 15 go by without fil
ing a report, then you must file your
final report and make payment by
Jan. 31. You cannot wait until
March 15.

Montana Farm Income
Stablest in District
THE MONTANA CASH farm in
come for the nine months, January
through September, 1949, was $193,
846,000, according to a federal re
serve bank report,
compared with $222,360,000 for the
same period in 1948 and the 1935-39
average of $57,857,000.
While the 1949 income was 13
This income
percent smaller than that of 1948,
this reduction for Montana was less
than that of any other state in the
ninth federal district, the report
showed.
Farm income was off 15
percent in Minnesota, 19 percent in
South Dakota and 28 percent in
North Dakota,
Farm Income Mav Be
Lower in 1950
FARMERS CAN EXPECT lower
incomes in 1950.
There may not be a depression or
price break, but all factors indicate
farm product prices will continue
to decline during 1950, asserts A. W.
Willis, economist of the Wyoming
agricultural extension service.
At least 10 percent below 1949
prices is the forecast for
prices re
ceived by farmers. Prices paid for
items used in production are
pected to decline between 2 and 3
percent. Thus, the decrease in not
farm income will be even more than
10 percent below 1949, Willis be
lieves.
ex
All indications point to a ratio of
prices received to prices paid below
100 percent. This means the buying
power of 1950 farm production will
be less than in 1910-14.
