This is done by completing form w4-e and giving it to your employer. If you earn less than $1725 this year you wont have to tax. Q the $70 payment i sent in several weeks ago was not deducted from the tax Bill you sent me. What should i do a reduce the Bill by the amount of your last payment and the difference. Return the Bill with your payment and note on it the amount of your previous payment the Date paid and where it was sent. What might have happened is that the Bill was issued before your payment had been processed and credited to your account. Sometimes however payments Are received that cannot be credited because there is insufficient information to identify the payment. This happens when the payment is received without an accompanying Bill or notice and the payment is not identified by the taxpayers social Security number. If the payment carries a social Security number then it can be readily identified and credited to the taxpayers account.

No letters will be accepted unless they Are signed and verified As coming from the author. Pseudonyms May be substituted for your signature at your request but no libellous or strictly contentious letters will be printed. To the editor although i am sure this letter should be on the sports Page i feel it should be written. Material has been written in the sports Page about the football team High school. The reporter has not gone to one practice session since the two a Day drills. I know he has to because i be been there three times out of four. The writer makes it sound like Bellmont in t any Good and he has All the solutions. I personally would like to know How he would go about changing the team. Or. Vanarsdel is a coach who in the True sense of the word is dedicated to football and coaching. He drills the football players in his Best possible knowledge and does one he Kuva Job. His coaching staff of Larry Rothen Hofer Al Lindahl Ken Webb and Bob Pilkington has to be one of the world s greatest. For All of the downtown quarterbacks i would advise them to attend a practice session and see what goes on. It surely is not All Coffee and doughnuts anybody can sit in the restaurant Uptown All morning and drink Coffee while discussing the various aspects of the game but unless the person played on a very successful team or coached a successful team i feel he has no right to criticize the Bellmont coaching staff. If they think they can do better let them try but i doubt of they could do a better Job than is being done now. Yours truly a any Normous Quot mental health matters Bertram s. Brown .

Stephen Decatur reporter Power letting employees have an Active voice in management of a company is one thing but when that company publishes a newspaper and the a a voice turns out to be opinions for editorials on How news should be covered on what should be printed etc., most newspapers the size of the Democrat still rely heavily on the management. It is always useful to have the opinions of the employees such As reporters this helps Sharpen the editor and make his views More easily understood. But ordinarily a Young writer while being technically excellent usually lacks the experience to make a judgement that would be considered sound by his elders.

Although the a reporter Power movement has taken hold at newspapers in several major cities it does not appear to have spread to papers with less than 50,000 circulation.
