INCOME TAX NOTICE.

TO GOVERNMENT OFFICERS.

All Government Officers are hereby
reminded that the latest date for the
submission of Income Tax Returns for
assessment in the year 1956 is the 31st
January, and that failure to give notice
of chargeability is an offence against the
Income Tax Ordinance, rendering the
person concerned liable on conviction
to a fine not exceeding FOUR HUNDRED
AND EIGHTY DOLLARS.
2. EVERY PERSON whose income
accruing in, derived from the Colony
or elsewhere and whether received in the
Colony or not for the preceding year,
exceeded the statutory limit of $480 is
required to submit a return on the pre-
scribed form notwithstanding that on
account of approved deductions no tax
may eventually be chargeable, ,and par-
ticular attention is directed to the fact
that the term "income" is deemed to
include not only money but also allow-
ances in kind.
3. Efforts are being made to send
blank return forms to such persons
through their Heads of Departments. It
is to be clearly understood, however, that
the Income Tax Department is under no
obligation to send a return form to any-
one and that a person is not exonerated
from the statutory liability of making a
return even though a form may not have
been received from the Department.
Forms may be obtained, on application,
at the Revenue Offices at Georgetown,
Barrouallie, Bequia and Union Island, or
in any other district from the Police
Station situate therein, or from the

come other than salaries, the form
