Tax returns may inevitably cause
guish and frustration for some per-
ns, but help is available locally for
ta'xpayers having problems figuring out
just what they owe the government.
dThe Internal Revenue Service (IRS),
p~ivate income tax services, and a
student volunteer assistance center can
all provide help with the returns,

l services offer ta3

although the type and cost of the ser-
vice available varies from place to
place.
The IRS office, located in the Federal
Building on E. Liberty, will answer all
questions regarding the filing of retur-
ns. They keep copies of all federal and
state tax forms and will compute
anyone's taxes. Some persons,
however, shy away from having the

government do their return.
PRIVATE INCOME tax services also
offer help, but their services can be
rather expensive. Fees range from $15
to $20 for the short form and as much as
$30 for the long form.
Returns completed at these centers
are don by trained individuals.
However, those persons who are un-
willing or unable to pay for this type of

forms they have to do, the people up-
stairs (in the MSA offices) are good
enough to do it."
The volunteers, who are also studen-
ts, specialize in student tax problems.
Specific examples of such problems in-
clude: How does a student teaching
assistant declare his income if it is in
the form of tuition credits? Is a scholar-
ship declared as income? And; what do
foreign students have to declare, if
anything.
Anyone who can file either a 1040 or a
1040A tax form and has a W-2 form is
eligible for assistance. Help ranges
from answering simple questions to doi-
ing the entire form.
All the project volunteers were
trained by Pat Wilke, a graduate
student working in taxation. "They are
well trained, they know their business,"
said Larry Halpern, co-director of the
program. If a form is filled out in-
correctly, the IRS would not issue
penalties or fines but would simply ask
for a recalculation of the tax.

ANSING (UIP) - If Gov. William
lliken left Michigan for the vice-
presidency or a cabinet post, his suc-
cessor most likely would ban welfare-
funded abortions in the state, Sen. Ed-
ward Pierce (D,-Ann Arbor) said
yesterday.
At a news conference, Pierce predic-
ted Lt. Gov. James Brickley would sign
into law any legislation banning
Medicaid abortions if he became the
state's chief executive.

Milliken -"touted as-a favorite for
the GOP vice presidential nomination
- has routinely vetoed bills axing state
abortion funds.
BRICKLEY'S OFFICE confirmed he
personally opposed to state funding of
ortions.
Pierce, the only physician in the
lislature, said Milliken alone has the
power to keep anti-abortion lawmakers
from eliminating the funds.-
JResults of 14 hours of hearings by his
Senate Health and Social Services
CGmmittee reinforced his belief that
state-funded abortions are necessary,
Pierce said.
But he admitted the four volumes of
timony would do little to sway his
f llow lawmakers on the emotionally

charged issue.
"The attitude I see among my
colleagues is 'Please don't bother me
with facts because my mind is made
up," he said.
THE ANNUAL battle over abortion
funding is expected to heat up in the
legislature soon as lawmakers begin
drawing up the 1980-81 state budget. A
bill prohibiting state funding of abor-
tions currently is stalled in Pierce's
committee.
The committee deadlocked on the bill
last fall, but Pierce said the committee
may force a vote to place the measure
before the upper chamber. He predic-
ted the bill would win quick approval in
the Senate.
But he noted a pending U.S. Supreme
Court decision could put an end to the

issue permanently. The high court last
week ruled pending a full review of the
question the federal government must
finance medically needed abortions.
Testimony during his panel's public
hearings indicated teenagers and
"ignorant' persons would be hardest hit
if welfare abortions were abolished,
Pierce said.
Those groups cannot afford the
procedure at all or delay seeking abor-
tions until their pregnancy is so far ad-
vanced the operation is more costly, he
said.
lie said the testimony also revealed
the state did not deal harshly with per-
sons who had undergone or performed
abortions prior to the 1973 U.S.
Supreme Court decision legalizing the
procedure.
