2. Failure to deliver the returns
mentioned in these Rules within the

under the Ordinance and renders the
person in default liable, on sum-
mary conviction, to a fine not exceed..
ing One Hundred Pounds and in
default of payment to imprisonment
with or without hard labour for any
term not exceeding six months.
'. Owing to neglect of the Rules
referred to by a large number of per-
sons liable to send in returns, the
Coin nissioners of Income Tax are
caused an unnecessary amount of in-
convenience and extra labour in
assessing Income Tax and it is pro-
posed to enforce the provisions of
the law against those persons who do
not comply with the Rules.
4. It should be noted that deduc-
tion for insurance Premiums and
Interest on Loans are not allowed un-
less supported by receipts.
