Tax eredits
help, out
student
ten ants

By NANCY NEWMAN
Taxes and rent are usually unpleasant subjects for
student tenants. But two Michigan tax credit
programs may make the combination of taxes and
rent a little easier to swallow.
Students can receive welcome breaks on their state
income tax, due April 15, througl4 home heating and
rent credits. To qualify for the credits, students must
live in off-campus housing and be declared finan-
cially independent.
STUDENT TENANTS are eligible for the home
heating tax credit even if heating is included in their
rent bill, according to Curt Gemalsky, income tax
administrator for the state's Department of
Treasury.
The credit, is "meant for low income people,"
Gemalsky said, and is based on household income.
and a standard allowance set by the state. Y
A rent credit, based on total rent and total income,

is also available for tenants. And if a tenant owes no
other state taxes, the rent credit can qualify for a
refund.
THE CALCULATIONS for the tax credits are easy
to make and can lead to substantial savings. "It was
worth filing for last year," said LSA senior Al Bayer.
"For simply filling a few lines I made almost $200."
For tips on federal income tax, H&R Block super-
visor Jerry Browning advises students who earn less
than $3,300 a year not to withhold federal tax on em-
ployment forms.
If the federal tax is not withheld, filing a federal tax
form is unnecessary; if the tax is withheld, a student
must file to get his or her money back.
"Why should you let them hold your money?"
Browning said.
Students can call the state Department of Treasury
to receive an income tax credit booklet with complete
information on calculating both home heating and
rent credits.

China plans extensive
govern1enalcutbacks

HONG KONG (AP)- China plans an
extensive governmental retrenchment
that includes cutting the number of vice
premiers from 18 to two or three and
scrapping a system -that allows most
bureaucrats to keep their jobs for life,
an authoritative leftist Hong Kong
newspaper reported yesterday.
It was the most detailed report yet on
the Communist leadership's plan to cut
down China's monumental
bureaucracy, which many senior
Chinese officials blame for stalling the
country's drive to modernize by the
year 2000.
THE HONG Kong Chinese-language

daily newspaper Ta Kung Pao, which
reflects the official Communist Party
line in Peking, said the program was
"revolutionary" and of paramount im-
portance to the "fate of the country and
the party."
Although the report could not be
verified in ,Hong Kong, diplomatic
sources in the British colony said it was
likely. The sources, who asked for
anonymity, said the Chinese gover-
nment has called on all ministries,
bureaus and councils to submit retren
chmert plans before March 1.

fewer eourses required

BY INDRE LIUTKUS
Beginning next fall term, students
working on their bachelor of business
administration degrees will have fewer
required courses and greater freedom
in choosing electives from their areas
of specialization, according to business
school officials.
The philosophy of the BBA program
has changed over the years, explained
Donald Skadden, the business school's
associate dean for academic affairs.
Originally developed to serve as a
broad business background for
graduate work, the BBA program is
beginning to emphasize specialization
for the growing number of students en-
tering the job mrket immediately after
graduation, Skadden said.
THE REQUIRED two three-credit
core marketing courses will be con-

solidated into a single three-credit
course, explained Martin Warshaw,
chairman of the business school's
curriculum committee.
Students will also have to choose one
of two currently required finance cour-
ses, and they may choose to take the
other course as an elective, according to.
Skadden.
Students questioned about the change
seem to agree that the flexibility
provided by freeing hours for electives
is desirable.
WILLIAM Middlebrooks, a senior
finance major, said that although a
basic understanding of financing and
marketing is crucial, the new program
answers the need for more electives.
"This reduction in the two cores'should
not cut back on fundamental knowledge
that is applicable to all phases of
business," he said.

Bob Peak, a business school junior,
said he thinks "It's great because more
specialization will help in a job.
Everything here is geared toward ac-
counting," he said. "There is a need for
more electives in other areas."
Another change in the business school
involves students who have taken
University courses in other schools
which are considered equivalent to
those offered by the business school.
Students will take Placement exams
next fall which may enable students to
waive the business course, according to
Judith Goodman, director of ad-
missions and students services in the
business school.
"I STRESS that this (exam) is an op-
tion available to students, not a
necessity," Goodman said. "If a student
does waive a course, the freed space
must be filled with a business school
elective," she explained.

Environmental groups- urge
control of waste shipments

LANSING (UPI) - Environmental
groups geared up yesterday for a key
committee fight on a bill strengthening
Michigan's control over radioactive
waste shipments.
Officials of Greenpeace Great Lakes
and the Safe Energy Coalition appeared
at a news conference to urge approval
of the bill by the House Public Health
Committee Wednesday- and counter,
arguments the-state is preempited by
federal action on the issue.
THE BILL, developed by a House
subcommittee after several months of

work, is designed to give the state the
legal authority it needs to control ship-
ments of high-level radioactive waste
through Michigan.
Gov. William Milliken used emergen-
cy rules to block a Canadian shipment
last yearksandpermanent regulations
are: in the works, but backers of the bill
said a statute would give Michigan "a
stronger day in court'! in a legal clash
viewed as almost inevitable. They said
they are conifdent Michigan's actions
would stand up despite the federal
rules.
