MARCH 2, 1963 4 Heroes of Emandpation 4 Weekly feature by The NAACP SAMUEL RINGOLD WARD Horn into slavery in Maryland in 1817, Ward became a fugitive while still a child, and fled with his parents, first to New Jersey and then to New York. His education was financed by the wealthy Abolitionist, Gerrit Smith. After studying at the Oneida institute he became an agent of the New York Anti-Slavery Society in 1839. During this same year, he was also licensed to preach by the New York Con gregational Association. Along with his religious duties, he traveled throughout New York and the other free states lecturing for the Society. Ward was deeply committed to abolitionism and his position as an agent cave him .. the ever-to-be remem bered pleasure of meeting all classes of Abolitionists, pro fiting by their suggestions, accepting their hospitalities, re joicing in their sympathies and sharing their devotions.” He was convinced that if the principle be admitted that a black man may be legally, righteously enslaved, so may any other man: that slavery was altogether evil regardless of the color of its victims. Ward believed that one of the methods by which slavery could be abolished was through participa tion in political action. Thus, he joined the Liberty Party and actively supported it. A very popular orator, this “Black Daniel Webster,” as he was called by many, was among the most famous of the Negro Abolitionists. Traveling in England as so many of his compatriots did, he became internationally known. Upon returning from England he went to Canada where he became an agent for the Canadian Anti-Slavery Society. He actively aided the various Canadian Negro settlements. Ward finally left Canada and settled in the British West Indies where he re mained until his death in 1867. Timely Tax Tip Timely tips were offered recently by Benjamin D. ! Waeehter. social security district manager here in Down town-Detroit to help you make sure that you get all of your social security earnings credit when taxpaying time rolls around April 15. Mr. Waeehter emphasized that if you worked for two employers during 19(12. you may be entitled to have any , excess social security taxes you paid refunded, or applied to reducing the income tax owed. In 1962, he said, you as an employee had 3»/ 8 percent of your earnings up to the first S4BOO a year deducted from your wages by your employer. Your W-2 Form should show no more than $l5O deducted from your wages in the F.I.A.C. (Federal Insurance Contributions Act) box even if you were paid more than S4BOO, the maximum creditable for social security. Mr. Waeehter pointed out that if you worked for two or more employers during the year and the amounts in the F.I.A.C. boxes on all of your W-2 Forms add up to more than $l5O, you have some money coming back. The tax rate for a self-employed person for 1962 was 4.7 percent of the first S4BOO of self-employment earnings. Even if, because of a large number of dependents and small earnings, you don't owe any income tax, a self-em ployment social security tax must be paid and a return filed if your net earnings exceeded S4OO for the year. Many self-employed persons who file declarations of estimated income tax prefer to reread out the payment of their social security by paying it in four installments along with their estimated income tax. Under the income tax law, Mr. Waeehter said, self-employed persons, other than farmers, who expect to earn at least S4O income tax on in come not subject to withholding, are required to file decla rations of their estimated income tax and make advance payments. The law permits the inclusion of the estimated social security self-employment tax in these declarations and advance payments. You should be very careful as a self-employed person in giving complete answers to all of the questions on Sche dule C-3 and the Schedule SE attached to the bottom of Schedule C-3. The District Director of Internal Revenue de taches the bottom portion after he determines that a correct tax payment has been made and sends if to the Social Se curity Administration in Baltimore, Md. There, Mr. Waech ter said, it becomes a permanent part of your social secur ity earnings account. It will one day be very important in fixing the size of the benefits which you have earned for yourself and your dependents as a self-employed person under social security, Mr. Waeehter said. Police Warn: Beware of Sudden Stops More than 15,000 accidents on Detroit streets and freeways in 1962—a1l of them rear-end col lisions —are the reason for the current traffic accident preven tion program which* got under way this week. "Beware of Sudden Stops” is the theme of the new program, repeated on some 2,300 street side posters located in the Detroit area and in more than 100 Michi gan communities throughout the state. The poster was prepared by the Traffic Safety Association. IT. Polkinghorn said that at least 21 percent of Detroit's 1962 ac Do’s^AnchDon’ts ! ‘ ; (.

A—That part of a Gl home loan guaranteed by the govern ment may be up to 60 percent cf the amount of the loan or not more than $7,500. The limit on direct loans made when no loans from private lenders are available is $15,000. The Bible Tells IJs: .. we know that all ; thins* work together for good to them that love God. foThem who are the called according to his purpose. ••For whom he did fore know he also did predesti nate to be conformed <o the image of his Son. that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. “Moreover whom lie predestinate, them he also called: and wliom he called he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us. who can be against us? “He that spared not his own Son. out delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? “Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. “Who is he that condemn* eth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God. who also maketh intercession for us. “Who shall separate us Its Tax Time Again Q —l wonder if I can file a I orm li'HOA? My income from wages. on which withholding was taken out was $8,900.00 I also had dividends of 5240.00. Would this dividend prevent me from usiri” the 1040A? A —You can use the Fo-m 104 CA, called the "short form". This year, any person who has income from wages, and with holding was taken from such wages, and the total wages were less than $10,000.00 can use the Form lU4OA. There is one other limitation on the use of the "short so-m" and that is if you have income from other sourc es of over $200.00 on which no withholding was taken. In your case the other income was divi dends on which you are allowed an exclusion of $50.00. You may deduct th« exclusion before list ing the dividend and thus, with dividend income of only $190.00, you are entitled to use the "short fcrm." Q — I was employed as a wait er at a summer resort hotel. I received my room and most of my meals at the hotel. Do I have to include the value of the meals and lodging in my income tax purposes? A —The meals are not taxable, if furnished on the premises of yeur employer and if fo.r his convenience. The lodginps are not taxable, if they are a condi t on of employment, are furnish ed to vou on your employer's premises, and are for his conven ience. If you had a choice to ac cept or reject the meals and lodging, you must report the val ue as income on yoi'.r tax return. * * * Q —My husband Is a salesman and uses his car in business. Can we deduct from his commissions thi' expenses he paid in earning them and still take the standard deductions? A—Yes, you can take the stand ard deduction, if your husband qualifies as an outside salesman, a» explained in your 1004 instruc tion book. All ordinary and nec essary business expenses of an outside salesman are deductible in computing adjusted gross in come. Do not, however, deduct bis cost %f meals unles he is trav ;!,ng awa Y from home overnight. After determining the adjusted oss income the standard de duction may be used, if the in come is $5,000.00 or more. If the income is less than $5,000 00 you must use the tax table. ♦ * * Q—My employer requires me to use my automobile in my cm- Ployment.

Are these payments subject to tax? A—Yes, supplemental unem ployment benefit payments from a company-financed supplemental unemployment fund are taxable. These are sometimes referred to as "Guaranteed Annual Wages." Unemployment compensation to you by a state or othe-r govern ment agency is tax exempt.

A—Television sets and other prizes won at .raffles afe includ ed in income at thair fair mar ket value. Fair market is gener ally the price which the tele vision set could have been sold for at the time you received the prize. The oni-y deduction which can be properly claimed against this prize is the cost of the raf fie ticket.

If you earn $4,800 or more during the year, you will have $174 deducted from your wages for Social Security. This is $24 more than last year, and you should allow for this in your budget. If you will reach age 65 this year, you need only 12 “Quar ters ’ of employment to qualify for Social Security benefits. So, if you have worked for at least four years since the Social Securi ty law was passed, you are elibi ble for benefits. If you are planning to continue part-time work after you reach 65 and will earn less than $1,206 per year, you can collect tfo<? full Social Security benefit. When you earn more than $1,200 you may still qualify for reduced benefits- Social Security retirement age is 65 for men, but only 62 for women.
