Ready For Retirement., He Needs Investment Program By SAM SHULSKY Author, "Stock Buying Guide" and "Investing For Retirement' husband has been with Sears, Roebuck 30 years and has shares of stock and a re- serve of about We would like to retire at age 58, but, of course, will not receive social se curity or pension until 62. What would be the best way to handle this stock? Should we buy muni- cipal bonds? Sears, Roebuck employe stock plan never ceases to amaze. Certainly, it has proved one of .he most rewarding to long-time employes that I am told about n readers' letters. Sears stock has a top rating, A plus. And there is little wonder about that. For the same reason, jf course, its yield is on the low side. Enough people want to buy he stock of this largest retailer o keep the price up to where he yield is around 2ft per cent. That means that when you retire may have to sell and use the approximately (at cur- prices) to buy a 5 per cent neld in some less aggressive, but letter yielding situation. Better check your tax liabili- les on this. Wait until after you etire and your tax bracket falls iff. I can't see much point to the municipals. Once you quit work, tax bracket won't warrant ;oing into that market. does one determine the x-dividend date of a stock? dividend" means 'without the dividend." Every dividend is payable on fixed date to all shareholders isted on the books of the corn- any as of a previous date of ecord. For example, a dividend may ye declared as payable some ime in November to holders of ecord on the books of the corn- any on Friday, Oct. 26. NORMAL TRANSACTION Since four business days are equired lor delivery in a normal lock exchange transaction, the xchange would declare the stock ex-dividend" as of the opening f the market on the preceding uesday, Oct. 23. Anyone who bought the stock n or after Tuesday, would not be entitled to that dividend. The payment would go to the person who owned it at the close of busi- ness Monday, Oct. 22. Q. We are in our 40s. Almost 4 years ago we purchased a 3- family house for with two mortgages against for 000 at 6 per cent and the second for at seven percent. We want to sell, but we don't know how easy it will be because of the two mortgages. Should we pay off one, or do you think someone would buy it with 3 mortgages. no way of telling un- til you try. If both mortgages carry clauses against prepayment, the thought of having to pay six and seven per cent might be discouraging to a potential buyer. But if the mortgages can be prepaid, they present no special problem. I certainly would not pay off either mortgage. Some one might be willing to assume them and thus cut down on his cash pay- ment. Evidently you are prepared to accept a third mortgage (or your equity. That could be risky if the property doesn't bring in enough to cover all three mort- gage payments.

(AP Wirephoto Map) YOUR 'MONEY'S WORTH THE NEW TAX LAWS' MEANING TO How To Use Tax Rebate (5th in Sylvia Porter's New Tax Law Series of 8 Col.) Many of you in business, trade or the professions will find when you make out your 1962 income tax return that the new investment of the Revenue Act of giving you an utterly unanticipatec tax cut on this year's earnings. For this credit applies to all your qualified purchases of equipment after 1961, regardless of why you bought the equipment. You can take the credit as direct reduction of the tax you ow on your 1962 return. It is, as re ported in yesterday's column, effect a tax rebate. But wliile the credit is a wind fall to many of you who woul have bought the property in an case, a highly important point that it also can make it consider ably easier for you to buy de >reciable equipment, autos, ete n the future. To illustrate, assume you are small business man whose top ta Bracket averages 30 per cent. Yo want to buy a new, modern piec of machinery which you will us n your business for eight years The cost will be and th first year's down paymen Under the new law, you ai entitled to a credit of 7 per cen of the cost and this credit plu lie depreciation you can take wi jive you back in tax savings i ,he first year a major chunk o your down payment. The 7 per cent credit will han you The 20 per cent first rear depreciation will save yo axes of The per cent de dining balance depreciation wi add TAX SAVINGS The total tax saving in the firs year will come to almos enough to supply funds to maki -he down payment. Here are other significant point about the credit. (1) It is not restricted to nev property. You can purchase use equipment and also get a tax re jate. However, while there is n imit on the amount of new iquipment which can be pur chased and qualify for the credit he annual ceiling on used prop rty which can qualify is Therefore, if you may run ove his maximum in. any one yeai your aim should be to time you! mying to keep each year's pur ihases of used property within the annual ceiling. (2) This is not a tax break which you can elect to take or urn down. If you don't take it basis for depreciation wil x reduced by the credit any way. So If you're entitled to the redit, take it. (3) You don't lose the credi f you buy eligible property, bu on't have any earnings on which o pay taxes and therefore, no ax against which to take the cred Any unused portion of the in estment credit may be carriec ack for three years and carriec ver for five years. But since no airy-back is permitted to a year nding before 1962, if you have an nused credit this year, you can nly carry it forward for use in iture years. lOTEUi, LODGING HOUSES (4) The credit generally is aired to hotels and other lodging ouses which cater predominantly permanent residents, although the hotel has a restaurant, phar- lacy or other commercial facil ,y which Is available to the public, ic assets purchased for that part f the hotel can get the credit.

On the other hand, hotels, lodging houses, motels, etc., which are used predominantly by transients can get the credit for furniture fixtures, rugs, drapes, TV sets, so forth. If you have leased rathei bought your new autos, (5) than equipment, etc., for business or Income-producing purposes, you too may get this new, tax credit if you can convince your lessor to give you the unanticipated bo- nanza which he otherwise could take for himself. The law speci- fically says that the lessor can pass on the investment credit to you. If he won't, you might con- sider buying rather than leasing the assets and picking up the tax credit yourself. This new credit is going to in- volve a lot more record-keeping on purchases of equipment than most business men or profession- als have been doing. Each item that qualifies must be given specific useful life and since the "premature" dispoi item within eight years may cause the loss of part or all of the credit, you must be able to identify which item was sold and prove when.
