IRS to tax Social
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Social
Security Administration will send 40
million Americans forms next month to
help them determine if they are among
the 10 percent of beneficiaries who, for
the first time, must pay income tax on
half their benefits.
Social Security and Internal Revenue
Service officials displayed yesterday
the new forms that will be mailed out in
ALL SOCIAL Security beneficiaries
- including the elderly and disabled -
must pay income tax on up to half their
benefits if their adjusted gross income,
plus tax exempt interest from
municipal bonds, plus half their Social
Security benefits exceed:
" $25,000 for a single individual.

and gain them a refund of all the taxes
they paid in the three previous years.
The IRS is auditing more than 300,000
tax returns that claim investments that
the agency considers "abusive"

before initiating a new marketing plan.
But Bruce Weinberg, manager of U-
Cellar, said he isn't going to sit and

sophomore shoppers who live in West
and South Quads to the Union store.
The U-Cellar is flaunting its status as
the "Official University of Michigan

onto customers out of loyalty to the 15-
year-old non-profit establishment.

this makes a difference to the students
