(Special to the Star)
Jacksonville, Jan. 23. The big in income
come income tax drive of 1919 is now under
way, and every preparation is being
made to handle the largest collection
in the history of income tax. "I am
not waiting for the final passage of
the new revenue bill by Congress,"
said Collector of Internal Revenue
James M. Cathcart last night, "nor
for the new regulations and blank
forms to be issued. To get this big
tax in and get it accurate and com complete,
plete, complete, I urge that we all begin now."
"The income tax obligations im imposed
posed imposed by the old laws, as well as the
measure now in Congress, consist of
two distinct operations. One is, to
file return or statement of all items of
income of deductions allowable by
law, and to do this within the period
named in the law. The other is, to
pay the tax, if any is due.
"Neither of these obligations can
be met without a careful review of
income and expenditure for the tax
year. That is the big job right now,
and that is why I say the income tax
drive is already 'under way. Every Everywhere
where Everywhere the pencil is busy. The old
year is done; all its fruits are glean gleaned;
ed; gleaned; and every person who fared well,
or earned a good competence, must
analyze his own case in cold figures.
"When the new bill is enacted into
law, I will have the proper return
forms distributed throughout the dis district,
trict, district, and everybody will be informed
of the date when the sworn return
must be filed. It is my plan to send
my men out to central locations, and
to have them travel through the dis district,

Prepare Your Figures Now
"Meanwhile, let me say again, there
is no need of delaying the prepara preparation
tion preparation of figures. Anything that Con
gress -does now will-not affect the
amount of a -person's earnings for
1918. Let us avoid the belated throw
ing together of figures that may hit
or miss. Guesses cannot be accepted
as the basis of taxation. It is clearly
the duty of every person to compile
correct figures and ascertain whether
his income for 1918 was sufficient to
make necessary a sworn return.
"The year 1918 was a banner year
for salaries and wages, and the high
war prices brought unusual profits to
the average small tradesman and to
the farmer. The opinion in Washing
ton is that a million'- citizens will
make this year their first income tax
"All signs indicate that the income
tax this year will reach nearly every
working man and woman, and nearly
every merchant, shop keeper and
farmer. Not all will have to pay the
tax, but. nearly all will be obliged to
make a sworn statement of the year's
"I am therefore advising every un
married person who earned $1000 or
over during the year 1918, and every
married person, who together with
wife or husband, earned $2000 to
sharpen his pencil and figure out how
'"He must ascertain accurately his
gross income from all sources. There
is his salary or wages, including over
time pay and any bonus received as
additional compensation. A married
person having children under 18 who
are working, should include the earn
bigs' of such children.
"If he sold any property at a profit,
the gain must be computed and in
cluded in gross income. If he rented
any property to other persons, the
total rents received in the year must
be ascertained, and from that figure
a deduction may be taken for taxes
paid on rented property, the neces
sary minor .repairs, fire insurance
any interest he may have paid on
mortgage, and a reasonable allowance
for wear and tear of the rented
property. The balance is included in
gross income for the year.
"Interest on bank deposits, wheth
er withdrawn or added to his bank
balances, must be included in all cal
culations of income. Bond mteres
received during the year must also be
included, except interest on munici
pal, county or, state "bwias. Interes

Buying and Selling Merchandise
"A person buying and selling mer

"All other items of income arising

Yes, we would. If a manpays his

MANUEL G. SMITH
Mr. and Mrs. John Smith, who live
out on the Blitchtjn road, two miles
from town, were deeply grieved this
morning to learn of the death of their
son, Manuel G. Sipith, at Muscle
Shoals, Ala., Oct. 12 last.
Manuel Smith was a boy well known
in Ocala. He attended our high school
and later had a position with the O.
K. Grocery. Late last year he went
up in Alabama hunting for one of
the well-paying positions in war work
in that section. He obtained a posi position
tion position with the big nitrate plant at
Muscle Shoals, but was soon after
taken sick and died. As a government
employe, his funeral was properly
looked after, but his parents were
not : notified. He rjad not been at
Muscle Shoals long enough to write
to them, so they did not know where
he was until their many anxious in inquiries
quiries inquiries were answered this morning
by a letter from the undertaker at
Sheffield, AIa.,( who had charge of the
boy's funeral. What a shock tq, them
it was can hardly be described.
Manuel Smith was a bright and
steady boy, one who early recognized
his responsibilities and rose to meet
them. He lacked several months of
being eighteen when he died. It was
inexcusable .negligence on the part of
some' government official that his par parents

Wm. H. Hallett
" Watch Your Step," at the Temple
fast night, amply proved its claim to
being one of the best shows of the
season. It was viewed by a packed
house, upstairs and down, which for
two hours and a half watched and
heard the performers with unabated
interest. There were so many excel
leit features to the play that it
would be impossible to fully describe
it or do justice to the performers in
less than a column article. Therefore
it must suffice to say that any show
ot its merit that comes here will al always
ways always go away leaving only pleasant
remembrances with those who saw it.
All who met Mr. Plohn and his people
hope they will come this way again
next season with two as good shows
as "Flo Flo" and "Watch Your Step.
