The Ambassador in Germany (Sackett) to the Secretary of State

No. 2254

Sir: With reference to my despatch No. 2112 of January 5, and the Department’s instruction No. 835 of February 11, 1933, with regard to the refusal of the German Ministry of Finance to recognize subsidiaries of American firms as corporations entitled to tax certificates, I have the honor to report that the German Ministry of Finance has now issued an ordinance, dated March 11, 1933, which gives subsidiary companies in Germany the full benefit of the tax bonus certificates. A copy of a letter, dated March 15, 1933, from the Commercial Attaché of this Embassy, together with the Reichssteuerblatt of March 11 in which the ordinance is published, is enclosed herewith for the Department’s information.25

Respectfully yours,

Frederic M. Sackett
