or status of interest on Liberty Bonds.

ADDITIONS TO THÉ ABOVE TAX:- If you are single and without any dependents as described in the Statute, your exemption from the
4% tax is $1,000, instead of $2,000 as shown in the chart, and the 8% normal tax will begin to apply at $5,000 instead of $6,000. The same applies
to a married person not living with wife or husband and without such other dependents.

DEDUCTIONS FROM ABOVE TAX:-(a) If you have dependents as described in the statute, your exemption from the normal tax is
increased by $200 for each dependent, resulting in a reduction of your normal tax as above computed by an amount not exceeding $16 for each de-
pendent, according to the size of your income.

(b) If your income includes dividends, your normal tax as above computed will be reduced by 4% or 8% (according to the size of your income) of the amount of your dividends.

(c) For status of interest on Liberty Bonds see page 6. Such interest, if subject to surtax, must be included in gross income, but is exempt from normal tax of 4%-8% as in the case of dividends.
