INCOME TAX NOTICE.

To the General Public.

Every person concerned, not being a
Government Officer, is hereby reminded
that the latest date for the submission
of Income Tax Returns for assessment
in the year 1959 is the 31st March, and
that failure to give notice of charge-
ability is an offence against the Income
Tax Ordinance, rendering the person
concerned liable to a fine not exceeding
SEVEN HUNDRED AND FIFTY
DOLLARS.
2. Every person whose income accru-
ing in, derived from the Colony or else-
where and whether received in the
Colony or not for the preceding year,
exceeded the statutory limit of $500.00
is required to submit a return in the
prescribed form notwithstanding that
on account of approved deductions no
tax may eventually be chargeable, and
particular attention is directed to the
fact that the term "income" is deemed
to include not only money but also al-
lowances in kind.
3. Efforts are being made to send
blank forms to such persons. 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 In-
come Tax Department, Kingstown,

tion in connection therewith is invited to
enquire.

should be accompanied by all necessary
supporting statements. Specimens of
