A certain percentage of alcoholics can be treated successfully, says a pamphlet fr Jm the American Medical Association. Not all are hopeless cases. Most alcoholics should be hospitalized in the early phases of treatment, to treat health problems arising from drinking and to interrupt drinking patterns. Some general hospitals offer treatment programs, other programs are in psychiatric hospitals, and comprehensive centers for alcoholics are available in most larger communities. Personnel .especially trained to deal with the problems function as teams in the treatment centers. Rehabilitation is emphasized. Treatment is directed toward helping alcoholics find a new way of life free of alcohol. It helps alcoholics to under- stand and accept their problem, and gives encouragement to overcome the sense of inadequacy that caused the disease initially.

On their own again, the alcoholics are face to face with the very real issues of where they will go, what they will do, and what they can expect from others. There is strong likelihood they will be unable to withstand much stress without resorting to alcohol again. The physician realizes that his' role is limited, and that truly remedial treat- ment requires the combined efforts of many persons in the total rehabilitation of the patient and the family. Many agencies and organizations ~t concerned with alcoholism belong to he Alcohol and Drug Problem Association of North America. The Association's office (1101 15th St. N. W. Washington, D. C. 20036) will furnish complete information on resources available in any community in the country. Most states have state-level alcoholism programs and many local government programs exist. Many communities have an Alcoholism In- formation Center. One organization that is successfully aiding alcoholics is Alcoholics Anonymous.

Failure to report tips correctly can result in a penalty. Employees who receive tips of $20 or more for a month are required to report the full amount to their employers. Document 5635, which contains Form 4070A, "Employee's Daily Record of Tips," is helpful in recording tips. Pub. 505, "Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax," has additional information on the procedure for reporting tip income. Military personnel, because of the nature of their lifestyle -- family seperation, moving, uniforms and other factors--receive special tax treatment in certain cases. Military pay generally is taxable, but allowances are not. The replacement period for the purchase of a new residence after the sale of a residence is extended. These are just two examples of this special tax treat- ment. IRS Pubs. 520 and 555 are helpful for military personnel tax information. Non-resident aliens, beth those who live in the U. S. and those who only work here, also have a special tax situation. This is true as well for non-resident alien spouses. They are generally taxed only on income from sources within the United States. Rates and laws in some instances are different from those of citizens and resident aliens. Resident aliens, on the other hand, enjoy the same tax benefits as citizens. Pub. 519, "U. S. Tax Guide for Aliens," is a helpful reference. Teachers who travel as a form of education generally can deduct travel expense only if a major part of their ac- tivities during the travel directly main- tains or improves skills required for their teaching positions. Further details on when and how travel can be deducted are in IRS Pub. 508, "Educational Expenses." High school and college instructors can rece|ve tree films and teaching materials for use in their classrOoms. "Understanding Taxes" is the high school level curriculum package, while "Fundamentals of Tax Preparation" is for the college classroom. Both packages contain teaching guides and student course materials. Many high schools and colleges receive ordering materials automatically through the mail each year. Faculty members whose schools are not yet on the IRS mailing list may request further information about the teaching packages by contacting the taxpayer education coordinator in their IRS district office. They can reach the coordinator with the IRS forms/tax in- formation number. Various IRS publications can also be ordered this way. The deaf and hearing-impaired have the same tax problems and tax respon- sibilities as the general publication. The IRS operates a year-round tax in- formation service for deaf and hearing- impaired taxpayers who own or have access to TV/Telephone-TTY Equip- ment. ,For information about this ser- vice, call from anywhere in the U. S. The number is 1-800-428-4732. In an organization as large as the IRS, errors are bound to occur. Lost or delayed refunds, misapplied payments and mix-ups in taxpayer accounts are some common problems which can usually be solved with a phone call or a letter to the IRS. If the taxpayer's problem persists he should call the Problem Resolution Program (PRP) for priority service. An IRS problem resolution officer can usually see a quick solution. He or she will also investigate the cause of the breakdown in an effort to prevent a reoccurance. There is a problem resolution office in each IRS district. PRP can be reached by mail or through the IRS forms/tax information number. Many groups and individuals with special tax needs find IRS assistance useful throughout the year. But even those who consider themselves "average" find themselves engaging in activities involving special tax needs. Tax problems may arise any time of year. Help is available through the IRS telephone system. There is no charge for IRS assistance or publications. Cross Roads Sehooi menu MARCH 23-27 BREAKFAST Monday: Cereal, juice, milk.
