INCOME TAX TIME ror r orms is Not all Income taxpayers are oa the federal payroll, but they are "working for the government" just the same, and that grim fact be- comes steadily more apparent as April 30, the deadline for filing one's income tax form, draws nigh. About the only persons who keep all their earnings, according to one calculation, for all of 52 weeks in a year are single persons withcus dependents making about J12.70 or married persons with slightly higher pay "cheques but so many cenendents they es- cape the collectoPs long arm. In- comes below S660 a year for single persons and for married per- iocs are not taxed. Sample Taies A single cerson without depend- ents, earning S1.150 annually owes Ottawa S138.40 in taxes, according to the calculation tables. Thau Sg- tires out to about S22.30 weekly, and the total amount of tax in this case amounts to six of pay, or six weeks during which the taxpayer is diligently giving- his services to the state. A married man two depend- ents in practicallv the same wage bracket is not called on to donate so much free labor to his country. a vear this man owes S15.33 in taxes. This comes to about five davs of work. The single man without depend- ents earning S1.800 a year (about S3-160 a week) contributes weeks of his time, his tax adding to S365.80. "A married, maa three de- pendents, earning ft year. faces S520 in taxes.. If he counts this total as unpaid working time he put in about seven weeks for nothing last year. Getting into the higher brackets means stiff labor donations. A COO-a-vear married man with two dependents owes S3J346 in taxes, which gives him about weeks, or more than three months of 1945. working for the government. 23 Weeks for Himself If you are in the a year married man with two dependents von will give 39 weeks of your time" and labor gratis to the Ottawa tax else! But j even after you have forked over i TOUT it is doubtful if you will starve on the earnings you i make while working for yourself the other 23 weeks.
