Best Class of Coods, Best Class of
Incomes Under $3,000 Not Affected by
Income Tax. Method of Comput
ing Net Income Explained
If a farmer is so fortunate as to
have a net income of over 3,000
a year in case he is a bachelor, or
$4,000 if married, he is subject to
the income tax, and under the law
each individual must make return
to the Internal Revenue collector
of his district on or before the first
day pf March if he has a net in
come of S3, 000 or over ($2,500 for
the ten months of 1913.) While
the interest of most farmers in this
subject is purely academic, the
Department of Agriculture has re
ceived inquiries indicating that
some wish to know just what is
reiuired of them under the new
The income tax law of October
3 I9i3i places a tax of 1 per cent
upon all net incomes of over $3,000
with an additional tax on incomes
of $20,000 or more. The first
question arising in the minds of
most people is what constitutes a
net income. For a man receiving
a regular salary, or a business
man with a good system of book
keeping, it is easy to determine
whether or not his income is tax
able. But for the farmer who re
ceives na stated income, and who
often fails to keep accurate ac
count of receipts and expenditures,
it is more difficult to calculate his
net income.
In order that farmers may be
posted on the income tax as it
may concern them, the following
information has been furnished by
the Internal Revenue Bureau of
the Treasury Department:
In general, an income consists
of amounts derived from salaries,
wages, or compensation for per
sonal service, paid in any form;
also from professions, business,
sales dealings in property, or
from rents, interest on bonds or
mortgages, dividends on stocks,
or other income from'investments
These items constitute gross in
come, from which', there should be
deducted the expenses of carrying
on the business; interest paid on
indebtedness, worthless debts
charge off; losses by fire, storm,
of shipwreck, not covered by in
surance; exhaustion, wear and tear
of property, and any income upon
which the income tax has already
been deducted at the source, as,
for instance, dividends on the
stock of a corporation which has
already paid the tax on its earn
ings. The provisions regarding net
incomes of $3,000 apply only to
unmarried persons, or to married
persons not living with wife or
husband. A husband and wife
living together are entitled to an
exemption of $4,000 on their ag
gregate income. This means that
in case the wife has a separate
income, if this added to the hus
band's income amounts to $4,000
the total is subject to the tax; or,
if the wife has no separate income,
the husband's income is taxable
only in case it reaches -$4,000.
But a return must be made if thet
aggregate income of both is $2,500
for the year 1913. The joint ex
emption, however, would be $3,-
In arriving at 'his net income
the farmer should start with his
gross income. This would con
sist of any items of the kind above
enumerated, and especially all
receipts from the sale of products
of every description from the farm.
This would include all money re
ceived from produce and animals
sold, and for the wool and hides
of animals slaughtered, if the wool
and hides are sold; but he may
deduct from these items the
amounts actually paid as purchase
money for the animals sold or
slaughtered during the year.
When the animals raised by the
owner are sold or slaughtered,
however, their value should not be
From the gross income there
should be deducted amounts of
money actually paid as expenses
for operating ' the farm and pro
ducing the farm products, live
stock, etc. This would include
hired farm labor, farm supplies
purchased that are necessary to
carry on the business and not an
investment that represents prin
cipal, etc. Expenses for repairs
on farm property may be deducted,
provided the amount deducted
does hot exceed the amount spent
for such repairs during the year
for which the return is made. The
cost of replacing tools or ma
chinery may also be deducted to
the extent that the cost of the new
articles does not exceed the value
of the old. No deduction may be
made for the cost of additional
farm machinery, but credit may be
allowed for the annual deprecia
tion in the value of such ma
chinery. For example, if a ma
chine cost $100 and is regarded as
good for ten years of service, the
annual depreciation would be 10
per cent, and a deduction of $10
each year could be made on this
account, as part of the expense of
operating farm.
The expense of supporting the
family, however, can not be de
ducted from the gross income.
Among items for which credit is
not allowed are expense for med
cal attendance, life insurance, in
surance on dwelling, store ac
counts, family supplies, wage of
domestic servants, cost of board,
room or house rent lor family or
personal use. In case an individ
ual owns his residence he cannot
deduct the estimated value of his
rent. But a tenant operating a
rented farm as proprietor may
deduct the rent of the farm as a
part of the expense of his business.
Farmers arf not required to in
clude in their income the produce
taken from the farm and consumed
by the family. Only produce sold
off the farm is to be included. A
farmer is not entitled to a deduc
tion of his own labor, or for ex
pense of feeding live stock. He
may, however, deduct such items
as cost of fertilizer and other sup
plies and materials which are used
up in the course of his operations.
The law provides that for the
year 1913 the tax shall be com
puted only on the net income for
the ten,months from March 1st to
December 31st, and that returns
shall be made on the basis of five
sixths of the year. Therefore, if
the net income for the last ten
months of 1913 amounts to $2,500
or more a return on form 1040 is
required. For the ten months of
1013 every single person is allowed
$2,500 exemption and in the case
of husband and wife, living to
gether $3,333.33 exemption. In
computing the net income for this
period deductions should be made
for only five-sixths of the amounts
properly allowable for the whole
year. Returns for 191 3 must be
made by March 1st, 191s.
Blanks for making returns for
the income tax may be obtained
from the collectors of internal
revenue throughout the country,
or from the Bureau of Internal
Revenue of the Treasury Depart
ment at Washington, D. C. In
case of failure on the part of any
one who is subject to the tax to
file the return by the first of March,
the law fixes a penalty of 50 per
cent of the amount of the tax
assessed and $10 to'$i,ooo fine.
Uncase of false or fraudulent re
turn there is a penalty of 100 per
cent and $20 to $2,000 fine and
one year's imprisonment or both.
The Bureau of Internal Revenue
is preparing regulations which
may be obtained by interested
persons on application to collec
tor of Internal Revenue for the
applicant's district.
