121. The first US census was held in 1790. The official figure that was recorded as the Total Population was not actually the total number of all people counted as some of the population counted only registered as a fraction of others. What would of been the Total Population figure in the 1790 US census if every persone who had been counted officially had been counted equally? karmaloupster 28-Aug-2000 3:09am

3,929,326 .. total population count as per the returns at the first census in 1790 www.iag.net
this total of 3,929,326 is before removing two-fifths of slaves counted, as only three-fifths of slave numbers used for apportionment of seats in HoR
3,929,214 .. actual figure used today as the total population of the USA in 1790 as per www.census.gov after subsequent discoveries of addition errors in two States .. the count as returned for Vermont in 1790 of 85,539 was overstated due to addition errors which duplicated 114 persons, the count should've been 85,425 .. the count as returned for Delaware in 1790 of 59,094 was understated due to addition errors which omitted 2 persons, the count should've been 59,096
if this is wrong kl, pretend I'm a horse who just broke a leg 'n go ahead 'n shoot me, please


5. What is the missing number in this sequence?

Q10. You are a resident of Canada who owns shares in a US Corporation. What is the maximumum amount of US tax (as a %age) that may be withheld from that dividend by the US Corporation, which it then remits to the IRS? Secondly, this maximum %age rate is set out in the US tax treaty with Canada - what is the Article number in which this rate is specified?

Q11. Exactly the same situation as Q10, except that you are a citizen of the USA, and accordingly must lodge a US tax return and are subject to the normal US tax laws on that dividend income. The tax on that dividend is not limited to the %age specified in the tax treaty as the IRS wish to tax you as a US resident, because you are a citizen of the US. You wish to argue with the IRS that you should be considered a non-resident and/or that the %age rate specified in the tax treaty should apply to your situation. What is the IRS Form Number that you must complete (specifying your situation and reasons), and then attach to your US tax return?
