International Full LCIM WTM MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY DECEMBER II 1959 a Copy of Two HOME EDITION 99 Uncle Sam checking dividends First concrete move to collect all thats due By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau WASHINGTON This is the time of year when corporations play Santa Claus cuttingin their stockholders for an extra slice of melon in the form of a special dividend when war ranted by the years earnings And with the dividend notices a good many of them at least come reminders that you mus list your dividends as income for federal tax purposes This year the Internal Reve nue Service is asking corpora tions and banks to mail 35 mil lion special reminders that in come taxes must be paid on dividends and interest This is the first concrete move in a broad campaign to collect taxes on as much as billion in divi dends and interest which is not reported on tax returns The government loses about million a year in revenue be cause many taxpayers dont re port income from these sources the IRS says THE DIVIDEND and interest program will involve an educa tional campaign and stiffer en forcement efforts Within a few years electronic equipment wil enable the IRS to match individ ual returns against dividend re ports of corporations and banks in the meantime individ ual returns will be checked in the usual ways but more care fully the past Tax experts have long been aware as Journal of Ac countancy recently pointed out stepped dow that if some taxpayers come to French soil be convinced that others are evading their fair share of the tax burden the upshot could be a breakdown of the whole sys tem of self assessed income The alternative of course would be a withholding t a x on dividends imposed at their source Congress has rejected p r o posals for a withholding tax on dividends for the past decade or so The Senate in passing the 1959 Tax Extension Act rejected by voice vote a dividendwith holdingtax amendment s u b mitted by Sen William Prox mire but the proposal is sure to come up again THE PRINCIPAL objection to taxing dividends at their source as the accountancy journal points out is that a withholding t a x on dividends and interest would involve tre mendous expense for corpora tions and savings of which the federal govern ment would pay 52 per cent in most This is because the outlays would reduce earn ings taxed at the 52 per cent rate Moreover handling re turns and refund claims would impose a large additional ex penditure upon the IRS Congress in the Internal Rev enue Code Act of 1954 permitted the taxpayer to exclude his first S50 of dividend income in re porting earnings for income tax purposes On joint returns hus band and wife the maximum exclusion is doubled to In addition a taxpayer can take credit against his actual tax bill amounting to 4 per cent of Few clues in Touhy slaying Slim clues many theories and an apparent dead end marked the early police investiga tion for motives in the shotgun slaying of Roger Touhy prohibitionera gang chief As police intensified their search for the killers of the 61 yearold exconvict there appeared many motives that migh have prompted the assassination There were not many clues Touhy was shot two men with 12 gauge shotgun only 23 days after he finished serving more than 25 years in Stateville Prison for kidnaping He was assassinated from ambush in typical ganglan fashion as he and a companion a retired policeman mounted the steps of Touhys home on the West Side The expoliceman Walter Mil ler 62 was seriously wounded but before he collapsed he
