INCOME TAX OF PERSONS, 1894.
INSTRUCTIONS RELATIVE TO ANNUAL RETURNS.
1. All persons who are required by law to make and render a personal list or return of the amount of their income, gains, and profits received in the preceding calendar year, and all persons who are required to make and render a list or return of the amount of income, gains, and profits of any minor or person for whom they act, shall, on or before the first Monday of March in each year, make out such list or return in the form and manner indicated on pages 2 and 3 of this blank.
2. The person making the return shall subscribe his name thereto in full, and shall state his place of residence and occupation, and if he is not a citizen of the United States he shall so state.
3. In case such list or return is made for or in behalf of any minor or other person, or estate, the fact shall be stated. The right and authority of any person who makes and renders such list or return, on the part and in the behalf of another, shall be disclosed, and the fact shown to the collector that such person was vested with such right and authority, and that it was his duty to make and render such list or return. 4. The gross amount of income derived from any particular source should be given, and entered in the return opposite the name of the source or object included in the statement. The exemption and the deductions allowed by law should be given next in order, and the several amounts should be entered opposite the several items of deductions appearing in the return.
5. The income, gains, and profits received during the year from any source not enumerated on the blank shall be given, and the particular source from which such income, gains, and profits were received shall be enumerated on said return under paragraph 15, and the amount of income, gains, and profits derived therefrom shall be entered opposite thereto.
6. The person making the return is required to verify the same, by oath or affirmation, as indicated on the within form, by affidavit to be sworn to before some officer using a seal and authorized to administer oaths, or before a collector or deputy collector of the district.
7. The income tax must be paid in the district in which the taxpayer's return is made, to a collector or deputy collector of internal revenue.
8. Persons having an annual income of less than three thousand five hundred dollars are not required to make and render an annual return, but in all cases where the annual income of any person exceeds the sum of three thousand five hundred dollars, whether it reaches the taxable limit of four thousand dollars or not, the list or return on Form 365 should be made by such person, duly verified, and forwarded to the collector of the district in which he resides.
9. Expenses for medical attendance, store accounts, family supplies, wages of domestic servants, cost of board, room or house rent for family or personal use, are not expenses that can be deducted from the gross profits or income in making annual returns. It was manifestly the legislative intention that the four thousand dollars exempt from the payment of the income tax should be applied to the above enumerated expenses, and all personal expenses for the maintenance of the family and household of the taxpayer receiving the benefit of the exemption.
10. The national, state, county, school, and municipal taxes deductible from incomes comprise such internal revenue taxes as have not been included in the expenses of the business, and all such state, county, school, and municipal taxes as are assessed ratably upon all persons liable to such assessment; but assessments made upon the real estate of a particular locality on account of street improvements, sewerage, street grade or other improvements intended to benefit the particular property included in said locality, are not considered as taxes which may be deducted from incomes.
11. The interest on all bonds of the United States shall be returned as income by the person, corporation, company, or association owning or holding such bonds, except the interest on bonds of the funded loan of 181, continued at two per cent; and the bonds of the four per cent funded loan of 1907; and the bonds of the five per cent funded loans of 1904, all of which are by the law of their issuance exempt, both as to principal and interest, from all federal taxation.
12. In estimating the amount of taxable income, only such losses as shall have been actually suffered, and the amount of which has been definitely ascertained during the year covered by the return, can be deducted from the gross profits for that year. No deduction will be allowed for any losses not specifically described and set forth in the annual return of the person or corporation claiming the deduction.
13. Non-residents are not entitled to the exemption of four thousand dollars, or to any exemption whatever, unless they make out their annual returns, duly verified by oath or affirmation, and deliver the same to the deputy or collector of the district wherein their property or business from which income is derived is situated, in the time prescribed in the case of residents. In preparing returns, non-residents may, when necessary, use two forms, No. 365- one for income from all sources, and one for income derived from business or any other source in the United States.
14. Persons receiving fees or emoluments for professional or other services, as in the case of physicians or lawyers, should include all actual receipts for services rendered in the year for which return is made, together with all unpaid accounts, charges for services, or other income due for that year, if good and collectible.
15. The annual return of merchants and manufacturers of their gains, profits, or income should cover the business of the year, from the first day of January to the 31st day of December in the year for which return is made; and their books of account, stock records, and inventories should be kept and taken at such time and in such manner as to clearly show the gross profits, business expenses, net profits or income for the year ending at the close of business hours on the 31st day of December.
16. The interest accrued during the year on notes, bonds, or other evidences of indebtedness, if good and collectible at the end of the year, should be returned as income, whether actually collected or not. Dividends payable in 1844 should be returned as income for that year, no matter when declared.
17. Debts which were contracted during the year 1894, but found in said year to be absolutely worthless, may be deducted from the income of the creditor in his annual return for said year, but such debts cannot be considered or returned as worthless until after legal proceedings to recover the same have proved fruitless, or it clearly appears that the debtor is insolvent, and that proceedings to collect the debt would avail nothing. In making the deduction for worthless debts, the person claiming the same must state in his return that one of the facts as above set forth exists in connection with the debt returned as worthless.
18. Where the salary or compensation paid to any person in the service of the United States does not exceed the rate of $4,000 per annum, or will not reach that sum in the calendar year, or is paid in fees, or is uncertain or irregular in amount or in the time during which the same was earned or has accrued, such salary or compensation shall be included in estimating the annual gains or income of the person to whom the same was paid, and shall be entered on his annual return (Form No. 365) to the collector with his other sources of income. All salaries or compensation paid to officers or persons in the employ of the government of the United States in and for the calendar year 1894 shall be included in the annual returns to collectors, on Form 365, of such officers and persons, in statements of gains, profits, and incomes sub ject to income tax for that year.
