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.

Dillon Implement Co. Box 230 Dillon, Montana 59725 It's Tax Time Again! NEW YORK (AP) — While most people arepreparing for Christinas and the new year, the nation's tax preparersare getting ready mr March and April. March is when their business booms. April 15 is their D 6 W yCtQTf Since their minds are already into 1972, many of them are thinking in terms of the new tax law just signed by President Nixon, effective Jan. 1. But, they note, it has applications now. ' . . If, for example, you are planning to contribute to the campaign of a political candidate or party, it might be wiser to delay doing so until next year, which now means a delay of only a few days- • The reason is that the 1972 law specifies that an individual cmi earn a tax credit of one-half the amount of any contribution to $25, and a married couple twice that. No such provision covers 1971. Note: That's a tax credit, not a tax^deduction. A tax credit is much better; it comes directly off the check' you send to the Internal Revenue Service. A tax deduction comes off the amount of income on which you calculate your tax. Hie final saving is only a fraction of the deduction. , For some reason, says Sanford Kahn, tax director for General Finance Corp., which hopes to prepare the returns of many thousands of customers next year, this provision of the new law didn’t generate much publicity. Whereas the political contribution will mean more in a tax sense if made in 1972, there is a convincing argument for paying in advance some other bills between now and the end of the year. That is, if you re still able to do so. The reason is found in the new standard deduction allowances. In 1971 this allowance is $1,500 or 13 per cent of adjusted gross income, which ever is less. The 1972 allowance will be 15 per cent up to $2,000. Assuming the same income for 1971 and 1972, he states, the 1972 tax owed would be less. Therefore, he continues, “itemized deductions are of greater value if you can include them on your 1971 tax form.” Among deductibles that could reduce taxes if paid before midnight Dec. 31 are charitable donations, medical bills, interest and property taxes. “If some of these are due in 1972, ultimately it might prove more profitable to prepay.” One of the neatest but conceivably the most hazardous tax reducer is marriage. If the legalities are observed and the ceremony completed by 11:59 p.m. on New Year’s Eve, the couple can file a joint return for the entire year. Reminder: You can wait an entire year and obtain the same benefit. Making some major purchases now could help, Kahn says. Sales taxes on big ticket items, for example, can be deducted on 1971 income tax if the bills are paid before Jan. 1. As for medical expenses, Kahn suggests the possibility of delaying payment until next year. Such expenses can be deducted only to the extent that they exceed 3 per cent of income. “If your 1971 medical bills don’t appear likely to go over that figure, it would be smarter to defer them until next year. If they surpass 3 per cent, then it would be best to itemize them on the 1971 form. Another reminder that might not be appreciated by busy people: “Consider having any other medical work you were planning on— visits to the dentist or new eyeglasses, for instance— completed during the remainder of December. Then pay the bills at once and lump them with your other 1971 deductions.” Hie object of such advance buying and prepaying is to lift your deductions above the 13 per cent or $1,500 allowance and thus reduce your tax bill. But. jf you fail to top $1,500 you must change your thinking. ............... Instead, take the standard deductions and put off those medical, charitable, interest and tax bills until 1972. Itemize them then and, with other bills paid during the year, try to top the 15 per cent or $2,000 allowance. ' ’ !.. And if you still fail?.Admit defeat. Surrender. Take the standard deduction. ..................... Special New Years Service Scheduled DILLON—The First . Baptist Church here will have a.special New Year’s Eve service beginning at 7 p.m. with a fellowship supper followed by a singspiration time, a film “To Russia With Love,” and the Lord’s Supper. Hie new 35-minute full color motion picture, “To Russia With Love,” is an Underground Evangelism production. It graphically portrays life for many thousands of Christians in com munist lands today. Many of the shots were filmed inside Russia and give eloquent testimony to the fact that hunger for the Word of God is very real in that land of multiple closed churches. Rev. L. Joe Bass, director of the missionary organization Un derground Evangelism, says, “Hiis film was dne of the most difficult projects we have ever undertaken. In our first attempt to put it together we ran into a number of problems. Hie second was highly successful, and today we are justifiably proud of the picture. Premiere performances across the nation have resulted in a high degree of interest among viewing audiences and mtich praise from the critics.” Bass adds: “We sent a professional photographer, with minimum equipment, into Russia to get the necessary shots. For the Soldiers Clash TIBERIAS, Israel (AP) - Is raeli troops and Arab infiltrators clashed near the Lebanese border Sunday night, and two Israeli soldiers were wounded, a military spokesman reported today. The guerrillas escaped into Lebanon, he said. Hie clash occurred near Avivim, where Arab guerrillas ambushed a school bus in May 1970, killing 12 persons and wounding 22. sight of much professional camera equipment would be enough to put the KGB on a foreign photographer’s trail 24 hours of each day. He was able to lose himself among the vast crowd of tourists and go on his way un challenged and unmolested. The result was some of the finest behind-the-scenes shots we have ever seen.” Narrator is Pastor Stephan Bankov, a young man who recently escaped from behind the Curtain with his wife and two children. Hie public is cordially invited to view this exciting and informative film. There is no admission charge.
