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.

The articles are based on information provided by the American Institute of Accountants and the Montana Society of Certified Public Accountants.) You may think that listing your income Is the easiest part of tax I filing. Actually, according to the Internal Revehue Service, this is where taxpayers make the greatest number of errors. Not all the money that may have come to you during 1955 needs to ; be reported on your tax form. For example you may have received \dividends” on an insur­ ance policy. Don’t list them as divi­ dends, because they are considered merely a refund of part of the premium you paid. Don’t include Social Security benefits. Railroad Retirement Act benefits, or payments received under Workmen’s Compensation laws. Don’t list gifts you received, although the giver may pay a gift tax. However; tips and other compensation for services must be reported. Do not report inheritances and bequests. The estate may be taxed but not the recipient. Personal Damages Not Taxed Damages received for personal injuries áre not considered taxable income, whether awarded by a court or settled out of court. i When listing your income you can also forget about government bene­ fits to veterans and their families, except non-disability retirement pay and the interest on terminal leave bonds. . The interest on state and muni­ cipal bonds is also tax exempt Although compensation for serv­ ices is generally taxable, whether ( S e n e e s e C o o k I s J a n u a r y B r i d e O f D a l e C o n o v e r A beautiful, w inter wedding united Miss G e n e e s e Alfreda Cook, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John A.

Prizes and Awards There is an interesting rule on prizes — they are only taxable if you worked for them. Even the. slightest action on your part to earn the prize — such as appearing on d quiz program or writing a slogan — makes it taxable income. But prizes awarded for scientific, literary or other achievements with­ out any action by you to bring about your selection wponld be regarded as gifts to you rather than taxable income.

To make the link w ith home com­ plete, Home Service came into being with its program of counsel­ ing and communication for .fam­ ilies of servicemen.-W orld W ar I also saw the beginnings of Red Cross recreation activities for able bodied men as well as hos­ pitalized servicemen and the in­ auguration of Canteen Service, which foreshadowed the clubmo- biles of W orld W ar II and Korea. Between the wars, the Red Cross continued to serve m ilitary personnel and veterans, strength­ ening and expanding its programs so that it was ready for the gigan­ tic tasks of World War II and its afterm ath.
