It's there that Duke gets something he can really sink his teeth into the handle on a 12 pack of beer. By NEIL GILBRIDE OTTAWA (CP) It's time to figure out your income tax, but don't panic. This year's federal-provincial forms are no worse than last year and maybe even a little simpler. And your friendly national revenue collector is ready to help if you can't figure your own way through the T-l tax maze. "Just be as accurate as you can, and call us if you need smiles Percy W. Kiers- tead, chief of information for the revenue department's as- sessing division. With no changes in the tax law to worry about this time, the department concentrated on trying to streamline tax forms to help taxpayers avoid errors. And it expanded the federal and provincial tax table to cover those with up to in 1973 taxable income, in- stead of the previous year's limit. The tax table automatically figures both your federal and provincial tax and you may use it if you meet two other major qualifications: you have no tax adjustment, divi- dend tax credit or foreign tax credit and you have no in- come from a business with a permanent establishment out- side your province of resi- dence. AVAILABLE TO MORE Revenue Minister Robert Stanbury estimates more Canadians will be able to use the simpler tax table this year because of the ex- pansion. Tax guides mailed to each taxpayer have the correct provincial tax due along with the federal tax due, according to each individual's income. The federal government col- lects provincial income taxes for all provinces except Que- bec, where residents must file a separate provincial tax re- turn. There were more than three million errors among the tax returns filed last year, making more work for the department and slowing the payment of refunds to some taxpayers. "This costs us money, said Mr. Kierstead. "We'll do anything we can to get accu- rate returns filed." This in- cludes an invitation to all tax- payers to come into their dis- trict tax office for help or write or telephone. PHONE CALL BEST Mr. Kierstead suggests that use of the revenue department's toll- free Zenith long-distance serv- the best way for most taxpayers to get help. Visiting district tax offices usually means standing in line and letters take several days. The telephone numbers to get help are printed on the back cover of the tax guide that comes with the income tax form. Last year's errors included attributed to the new tax legislation, which most taxpayers presumably have since had time to figure out. Another were math- ematical errors, including in- come figures on the wrong line. "This automatically doubles your income because the en- tries on the form are com- Muriel Joliffe Dance Academy in cooperation with The Lethbridge Folk Arts Council and The University of Lethbridge PRESENTS 'Cop pel i a' '-4j5 r t.6y'5rC6 Wednesday, Feb. 27th at noon University of Lethbridge, Main Concourse (6th level) IN-GROUND VINYL M WIMHING POOL KITS me- -fenK., i I I Could not've happened to nicer guy BOSTON Author Clifford Irving admits he was "pretty ticked off" when Nina Van Pallandt told the press Irving couldn't have interviewed Howard Hughes in Mexico because he was with her.

Council rules out price increases for 974 cars WASHINGTON (AP) The Cost of Living Council lifted wage and price controls today from the iron and steel industry, but ruled out a new round of price increases for 1974 automobiles. Council Director John Dunlop cited reports that General Motors Corp. is considering raising prices on its 1974 models for the third time. The council lifted price con- trols from the auto industry in early January in exchange for commitments that the major auto makers would not again raise prices on 1974 models unless there were major unforeseen economic developments. "I do not think price in- creases are in order for 1974 models in light of those com- Dunlop told reporters at a briefing. The council said it was lifting wage and price controls from the iron and steel foundry industry as part of its program to lift controls from the economy gradually. It said there have been shortages of foundry products, especially in steel castings for use in the auto and railway in- dustries. The foundry industry, which includes firms employing workers, ha? been operating at full capacity and is facing severe cost pressures for scrap steel, its largest single material cost, the council said. 16'i complete kit HIV MOW Aft SAVE BOAT for SALE-20 CABIN CRUISER Completely equipped with 15 Gallon Fuel Tank 100 h.p.

The result will not double your tax bill, but it will mean putting your income return in "error requiring correcting by hand, and slow any refund due. Another errors last year were what Mr. Kierstead describes as "our old that continue year after year." These principally involved wrong calculations for over- payments to Canada or Que- bec Pension Plans or persons with more than one employer during the year who paid too much unemployment insur- ance. ANXIOUS TO HELP To try to solve such errors, the revenue department has put heavy black lines around the "income" and "deduc- tions" sections of the T-l tax forms to clarify where the to- tals go and where to claim overpayments. At this time of year, all rev- enue department staffs in dis- trict offices are told to forget about compliance activities for the time being and con- centrate on helping taxpayers figure out their problems, he added. Last year department offi- cials answered nearly four million queries from tax- payers, up from 2.6 million the year before, and they are bracing for the first of two big crush periods. Employers are required to provide employees with T-4 tax information slips by the end of February and the deadline for filing tax returns is April 30. The first big load of queries and returns comes during March. They call it the refund filing quickly to claim a refund. The other peak is late in April, mostly persons with more com- plicated tax situations or per- haps some who will owe money and put off paying un- til the last possible moment. As usual, the department is taking on extra employees, who will eventually total about to help process returns and speed refunds. That's more than at last year's peak.
