Revision o f Treasury Department Circular No. 848
and this Bank’s Operating Circular No. 18
To all Banks and Trust Companies
in the Second Federal Reserve District:

The T reasury D epartm ent has announced that, effective with respect to wages paid after
June 30, 1951, em ployers w ithholding R ailroad Retirem ent taxes from the wages o f their
em ployees will be required to deposit such taxes each m onth with a F ederal R eserve Bank or
a qualified D epositary fo r F ederal Taxes, if the aggregate amount o f the em ployer and
em ployee taxes exceeds $100 a month. D eposits m ay be made at the option o f the em ployer,
if the amount o f such taxes is $100 or less a month.
E nclosed is a cop y o f T reasury D epartm ent Circular No. 848 (R ev ised ), dated June 25,
1951, which authorizes qualified D epositaries fo r F ederal T axes to accept deposits o f R ailroad
Retirem ent taxes, and sets forth the procedure to be follow ed b y D epositaries fo r F ederal
Taxes. Banking institutions which are already qualified as D epositaries fo r F ederal Taxes,
pursuant to T reasury D epartm ent Circular No. 848, w ill not be required to requalify under the
revised circular.
D eposits o f R ailroad Retirem ent taxes w ill be accom panied by a distinctive receipt form ,
U. S. T reasury D epartm ent F orm 515 — R ailroad Retirem ent D epositary R eceipt. This form
appears as Exhibit C in the enclosed T reasury D epartm ent Circular No. 848 (R ev ised ). In all
other respects, the procedure to be follow ed b y depositaries, relating to R ailroad Retirem ent
tax deposits, w ill be identical with the existing procedure with respect to deposits o f withheld
incom e tax and em ploym ent (S ocia l S ecurity) taxes. It w ill not be necessary fo r depositaries
to segregate R ailroad Retirem ent D epositary Receipt form s fro m F ederal D epositary R eceipt
form s relating to deposits o f w ithheld incom e tax and Social S ecurity taxes, when transm it­
ting them each day to the F ederal R eserve Bank. D epositaries m ay transmit to us, under
cover o f a single transm ittal letter (our F orm W . T ax 2 or W . T ax 15), both the new F orm
515, and the existing F orm s 450 and 450-A which are used in m aking deposits o f withheld
income taxes and employment (S ocia l S ecu rity) taxes. Our F orm W . T ax 2, although designed
fo r the transm ittal o f F orm s 450 and 450-A only, m ay be used until our present supplies o f
that fo rm are exhausted, at which time the fo rm w ill be revised.
Our O perating Circular No. 18, has been revised to reflect the changes effected by T reasury
D epartm ent Circular No. 848 (R ev ised ). A cop y o f the revised operating circular is enclosed.
Inquiries concerning this circular and its enclosures m ay be addressed to the A ccounting
Departm ent, W ithheld T axes Section, F ederal R eserve Bank o f New Y ork, F ederal R eserve
P.O. Station, N ew Y ork 45, N. Y . A dditional copies o f this circular and o f the enclosures will
be furnished upon request.

6 . Procedure to be Followed by Depositaries f o r Federal Taxes
There are outlined below the basic requirem ents o f the procedure that will be observed b y qualified
Depositaries for-Federal Taxes w ith respect to deposits o f Federal Taxes. M ore detailed instructions will
be furnished such depositaries, through the Federal R eserve Banks.
(A ) D epositaries shall a ccept from em ployers, w ho desire to m ake deposits o f Federal Taxes with such
depositaries, cash or rem ittances in the form o f check, m on ey order, etc., covering the am ount o f
the Federal Taxes, accom panied b y an appropriate depositary receipt form on w hich the em ployer has
inscribed, in ink or b y typew riter, his name, address, em p loy er’s identification num ber, and total
am ount o f taxes; Provided, T h a t depositaries will n ot be required to, b u t m a y at their ow n risk, a ccept
from em ployers funds w hich are n o t im m ediately available to the depositary at the tim e o f deposit.
D epositaries shall n ot a ccept from em ployers any typ e o f depositary receipt form , accom pan yin g
their rem ittances, oth er than the depositary receipt form s prescribed in this circular, and shall n ot
a ccept Treasury Savings N otes or other p u b lic d e b t securities o f the U nited States as deposits of
Federal T axes under this circular.
(B ) I f requested to d o so b y em ployers, depositaries will issue a m em orandum o r cou n ter receipt to em ­
ployers evidencing receipt o f funds b y the depositary. It is im portan t that m em orandum receipts
issued b y depositaries clearly state that em ployers m ust n ot attach such m em orandum receipts to
their tax returns as evidence o f deposit o f taxes, since on ly official depositary receipts, w hich have been
validated b y a Federal R eserve B an k , will be accepted b y collectors o f internal revenue. A suggested
form o f m em orandum receipt, w hich shall be p rovid ed b y the depositaries at their ow n expense, is
shown as E xh ib it D o f this circular.
(C ) D epositaries will endorse each depositary receipt in the space p rovid ed on the reverse thereof, indicat­
ing the nam e o f the depositary and the date on w hich the tax deposit was received b y the depositary.
(D ) D epositaries shall forw ard daily to the Federal R eserve B an k o f their district the d epositary receipts
inscribed b y em ployers, together w ith paym ent in funds im m ediately available at the Federal R eserve
B an k p oin t or advice that funds have been credited in the Treasury T a x and L oa n A cco u n t o f the
depositary, covering the aggregate am ount o f all Federal T a x deposits received during that day.
(R egulations governing deposits in Treasury T a x and L oa n A ccou n ts are contained in Treasury
D epartm en t C ircular N o. 92, R evised .) E ach transm ittal will be accom panied b y a transm ittal
letter in the form prescribed b y the Federal R eserve B anks. I t is im portan t that the depositary re­
ceipts be forw arded daily in order that they m a y be validated b y the Federal R eserve B an k and
returned directly to the respective em ployers w ith ou t delay, together w ith a blank d epositary receipt
fo r the emploj^cr’s use in m aking his next deposit.
(E ) D epositaries will establish, prior to transm ittal to the Federal R eserve B ank, an adequate record o f all
deposits received from em ployers, so that the depositary will be able to iden tify deposits in the event
depositary receipts are lost in shipm ent betw een depositaries and Federal R eserve B anks. F o r this
purpose, it will on ly be necessary to m aintain a record o f the date o f paym ent, the em p loy er’s iden ti­
fication num ber and the total a m ou nt o f tax d eposit; therefore, copies o f m em orandum receipts and
copies o f the d epositary’s transm ittal letter, if individual deposits and em ployers’ identification
num bers are listed separately, cou ld be used to provide the necessary inform ation.
7. Issuance o f Replacement R eceipts; Inquiries From Em ployers
In the event a depositary receipt, w hich has been validated b y a Federal R eserve Bank, is lost,
stolen, or destroyed before it is forw arded to a collector o f internal revenue w ith the em ployer’s quarterly
Federal tax return, the em ployer will be issued a replacem ent receipt upon proper application and sub­
m ission o f required evidence to the Federal R eserve B an k w hich validated the receipt. Such issuance
o f replacem ent receipts will be governed b y requirem ents and procedure prescribed b y the Secretary of
the Treasury. D epositaries should instruct em ployers to execute “ A pp lication for Issuance o f R ep lace­
m ent D epositary R eceip t,” indicating thereon the type o f taxes, the date and am ount o f deposit, em ploy -




3

er’s name, address, and identification num ber, and the serial num ber o f the validated depositary receipt,
and should indicate whether deposit was m ade with the D epositary for Federal Taxes or directly w ith
the Federal R eserve Bank.
In the event an em ployer makes inquiry o f a depositary w ith respect to a deposit m ade with such
depositary, for w hich he has n ot received a validated d ep ositaiy receipt from the Federal R eserve B ank, the
depositary should furnish the required inform ation, stated in the preceding paragraph, to the Federal
R eserve B an k to enable it to investigate the m atter.
I f a d ep osita iy receipt w ith ou t the em p loyer’s identification num ber inscribed thereon is presented
to a depositary b y an em ployer when he m akes his deposit o f Federal Taxes, the depositary should re­
quest him to inscribe the identification num ber in the space provided. In the event the em ployer has
n ot been assigned an em ployer’s identification num ber, the depositary should nevertheless accep t the
deposit. I f the em ployer has not m ade application for an identification num ber to the collector for his
district, the depositary should request him to d o so.

8 . Termination o f the Qualification o f a D epositary f o r Federal Taxes
T h e Secretary o f the Treasury m a y term inate at any tim e the qualification o f an y D epositary for
Federal Taxes. Failure u pon the part o f a depositary to com p ly w ith the provisions o f this circular,
and any am endm ents o r supplem ents thereof, o r w ith instructions issued pursuant thereto, m ay, in the
discretion o f the Secretary o f the Treasury, con stitute grounds for term ination o f qualification. Like­
wise, any depositary m a y term inate its qualification upon formal n otice to the Secretary o f the Treasury,
through the Federal R eserve B ank o f its district.
9. Treatment by Collector o f Internal Revenue o f Validated Depositary Receipts
D eposits o f Federal Taxes m ade b y em ployers with D epositaries for Federal Taxes and Federal
R eserve Banks shall be treated as paym ent o f such taxes to collectors o f internal revenue upon the filing
o f the em p loyer’s quarterly tax return and the presentation therew ith to such collectors o f properly
executed and validated depositary receipts. C ollectors o f internal revenue will deposit all such depositary
receipts, as Internal R even ue collections, w ith the Federal R eserve B an k o f the district in which the
collector’s head office is located. E ach such deposit shall be accom panied b y an appropriate certificate
o f deposit w hich shall n ot include any class o f deposit oth er than depositary receipts.
In any case in w hich a depositary receipt is deposited b y a collector o f internal revenue w ith a Federal
R eserve B ank, and it is determ ined that the em ployer failed to p ay to a depositary or a Federal R eserve
B ank the am ou nt stated thereon, the Federal R eserve B an k m a y return such item to the collector o f in­
ternal revenue, under procedure prescribed b y the Secretary o f the Treasury.
10. Functions To B e Performed by F'ederal Reserve Banks
T h e fun ction s to be perform ed b y Federal R eserve B anks, as fiscal agents o f the U nited States, with
respect to Federal T axes, will be prescribed in detailed instructions to such banks. T h e Federal R eserve
Banks will perform such additional functions relating to the deposit o f Federal T a xes as m ay be required
from time to time b y the Secretary o f the Treasury. In general, Federal R eserve Banks will:
(A ) R eceive d irectly from em ployers deposits o f Federal Taxes, accom panied by inscribed depositary
receipts, and establish appropriate accounting con trol for such deposits. T h e requirem ents upon
em ployers w ith respect to inscribing d ep ositaiy receipts and use o f the prescribed receipt forms
