Income Tax Reporting
Easiest on Form, I 040A
EDITOR'S NOTE-This is the last
in a series on problems of filing an
Income Tax return.)
By JAMES GREGORY
Income tax Farm 1040A, the
yellow sheet, is new, taking the
place of the form which appeared
last year on the back of with-
It is the easiest way to make out
your tax return. If you use Form
1040A, you don't have to figure
the amount of your tax. You an-
swer the questions on the form,
and the collector of internal rev-
enue figures your tax and sends
you a bill or a refund.
BUT ARE YOU permitted to use
this form? The answer is "yes"
if your answer to the forthcoming
questions is "no":'
1' Did your income in 1948 total
$5000 or more?
2. Did you get more than $100
from dividends, interest and wages
not subject to withholding ?
3. Besides wages,dividends and
interest, did you have any other
If you can't answer "no" to
all three questions, then you
must use Form 1040, the white
sheet, as a return.
Even if you are permitted to
use Form 1040A, you may want to
use Form 1040. This may be the
1. You had out-of-town travel
expenses or "reimbursed expenses"
in connection with your work and
want to deduct those expenses in
order to reduce your taxable in-
come. ("Reimbursed expenses" are
reported by some employers as
part of your income.) There is no
place to list such expenses on
2. You want to know the amount
of your tax at once without wait-
ing for the collector's notice on
it. On short Form 1040 you find
your tax in the table on page four
of the form.
FORM 1040 may be used either
as a short form or as a long form.
The short form is simpler than the
long form. It differs from Form
1040A in that:

a jealously guarded secret, known
only to expert chefs, who used it
on limited special occasions.

reimbursed expenses from your

$5,000 and you do not want to

find your tax from the table on
the back of the form, tear off the
first sheet and file it as a short
form. Then, as on Form 1040A.
you will receive an automatic 10
per cent deduction for nonbus-
ONLY IF YOUR nonbusiness
deductions are about 10 per cent
or more of your income will you
stand a chance to save money by
using long Form 1040. And only
if your income was $5,000 or more
are you required to use it.
If after reading about the
other forms, you still decide to
use Form 1040A, be sure to at-
tach all your 1948 withholding
statements (Forms W-2) to your
As March 15, the deadline for
filing, looms closer, larger num-
bers of people will be sehding in
their returns every day, crowding
the offices of the collector of in-
ternal revenue. So if you have a
refund coming; as do many stu-
dents, you'd better get your re-
turn in right away.
The sooner you do, the less time
it will take for the collector to
get around to mail your refund to
