What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

His wife and two children | will remain with his parents, Mr. j and Mrs. Norman Downing, on i their ranch south of Dillon. I many careless mistakes by tax­ payers. Most of the errors are very sim­ ple. For example, about one million returns are filed every year with signatures missing. (This includes joint returns with only one signa­ ture and Individual returns with no signature at all.) Little slips in arithmetic last year resulted in overpayments by tax­ payers of $18,000,000. Taxpayers got back these overpayments eventually, after the government discovered the mistakes, but the ■ taxpayer cannot rely on the government to save him from all his errors. The mistakes of arithmetic favor­ ing the taxpayer were even larger— perhaps not entirely by’ coincidence. All returns are checked, and-when an underpayment is discovered the government not only collects the difference, but also charges interest. Opportunities Overlooked Apart front obvious mistakes, many taxpayers overlook opportuni­ ties to claim exemptions and deduc­ tions, and other ways to reduce their tax. In order to help you avoid such pitfalls, this newspaper is publish ing a series of articles prepared w ith , the help of the national and -state, organizations of certified pub­ lic accountants. These articles — if you save them and use them along with the official instructions that come w-ith your tax forms — may save you money. Your first step is to consider whether you should file at all. and then what kind of a return to file. For'income tax purposes you are not required to file a return.'if your gross 1955 was less than $600, or if you are 65 or older and had less than $1,200 gross income. But if you had income from self- employmefft of $400 or more, the return must be filed for social security tax purposes. Don't forget that tax on salary or wages may have been withheld dur­ ing the year by your employer, even if your income was -less than $600; and the only way to get it back is to file a tax return. Advantage o f Joint Retains A common mistake is the filing of a separate return by a Wife who had a small income. If the wife files a separate return, she is not per­ mitted to file another return jointly with her husband, nor is her hus­ band allowed to claim an exemption for the wife on his separate return. Most married couples will save money by filing a joint return, as i this “splits\ their income to put them in the same bracket as though each of them had received half the total income. ; ‘ There are unusual cases, however, such as those involving capital losses, in which separate returns might result in a saving. If this is a possibility, it is best to figure both jointly and separately before decid­ ing which‘way to file. The instructions that come with your tax forms give -further infor­ mation. Help is also available from the Internal Revenue Service, which urges you to consult a properly qualified advisor if you need outside assistance.

In reviewing the Chamber’s ac­ tivities for 1955, Past President Frank Lasich pointèd to the in­ creased membership which for the first time passed the 150 mark; assistance in promoting and pub-1 licizing the successful Lewis arid Clark Pageant; sponsorshio of thè town-college “Advance Western” c o m m i t t e e ; promotion of the street widening project along the Union Pacific park. He also noted that for the first time in several years, the Chamber closed its op­ erations with a cash balance—■ even though a small one. Water Commissioner Bert Meg- quier, representing Mayor Lovell, outlined plans for city improve­ ments this year and long-range planning for a continuous pro­ gram for the future which will in­ clude street maintenance and pav­ ing, construction of sanitary and storm sewer lines. He referred to the present successful operation of city garbage collection by pri­ vate truckers. In the past, while operated by the city, this service had operated at a lefss which drained money from other funds. Representative George- Gleed spoke briefly c o n c e r n i n g the Clark Canyon dam and pointed out that a fund of $3,000 had been quickly subscribed to underwrite necessary promotional expense. He said that two-thirds of the fund is still intact and available for use when the necessity arises.
