BAD DEBTS AND
THE INCOME TAX
"Before making any deduction for
bad debts on an income tax return, the
taxpayer should make sure that he is
entitled to do sb, and that the bad
debts are of such nature that they are
clearly deductible items," declared
Collector of Internal Revenue James
M. Cathcart today.
"Just because the personal -income
ta form provides spaces in which to
claim an allowance against income for
uncollectible debts does not mean that
the taxpayer may search his memory'
for a flock of personal loans and put
them down on his return.
"The space in Block A for bad debts
is for use only by business and pro- -fessional
men who are entitled to ad adjust
just adjust their income; And such adjust adjustment
ment adjustment can be made only in cases where
certain accounts have been included in
the gross income and have since, dur during

basis, that is, include their entire sales
or charges, are entitled to an adjust- ;
ment to cover sales or charges that
have been definitely determined to be
worthless. A return on the basis of
cash receipts and disbursements must
not show & deduction for worthless
debts; for the taxpayer has shown as
income only the accounts which have
proven to be good.
"Arbitrarily 'writing down debts or
bills receivable is not tolerated by in income

which the reserve for bad debts con constitutes,

spirit of the law. The individual debt

in respect to its becoming worthless,
will alone be taken into consideration
when determining whether it is. de deductible.

collectible uncollectible accounts is emphasized by
the internal revenue officials. That is
that any bad dehts charged off and
later recovered is taxable income for
the year when recovery is made.
Some Other Bad Debts
"Bad debts may arise, not only in
a business or profession but also thru
bonds, notes, loans, mortgages and
other items of indebtedness, wherein
the assets of the taxpayer sustain an
actual determined. loss. In these lat latter

"As to notes, loans, etc., which a
taxpayer deems uncollectible, the

whether they are proper deductions.
They must be ascertained to be worth

asset within the year. If a debt is
forgiven it cannot be deducted, for it

CONSIDER THE TREES
Editor Star: Trees fall across the
highways during storms. Sometimes
these trees or parts of them remain in
the roads for weeks while everybody
drives around them. In the day time
people can see these and avoid them,
but at night they are evil traps in the
path of the unwary. Many pass and
repass these obstacles and as long as
they can crawl around, never make an
effort to clear the road. In most cases,
it would take but little effort and a
few minutes time. If everybody would
take a little interest in the general
welfare, the trees would not stay in
the road for weeks and traveling
would be more comfortable and safer
At least one man in our midst is in interested
