The compatibility of the Adler-Bardeen theorem with the supermultiplet containing the axial, trace, and supercurrent anomalies in N = 1 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory is re-examined (in component form). It is argued that consideration of the off-shell form of the supermultiplet removes the apparent paradox, at least at the two-loop level. In this short note the question of the compatibility of the Adler-Bardeen (AB) theorem [ 1 ] and supersymmetry in supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory (SSYM) is
