TIME UP ON INCOME
TAX RETURNS FOR 1923
Must Mike Returns as Formerly and Wait for Reduction Which

of Redactions So Now Are in Wild Scrambte To Get Unde*
March 15 Wke.
, By ROBERT FULLER
Washington, March 8.?Another in
come tax return day is at hand.
March 15, a week from Saturday, is
the day. Perhaps not since the in
come tax law became effective has
there been as wide and general delay
in making returns as this year.
The cause of this was, of course,
the expectations of the taxpayers that
congress would have before this time
passed a measure allowing a reduc
tion on 1928 incomes. However, the
fight in congress in attempting to re
vise the Mellon plan so gummed up
the works that the situation is as yet
unchanged, although it is generally
accepted that a joint resolution cov
ering a reduction of 1928 incomes will
be passed before June . 15. Legisla
tion effecting 1924 incomes will like
ly be postponed until the fall season.
