(OVFR) FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, July 14, 1943 Press Service No. 37-54 r* The Treasury Department announced today that the time for filing reports of Americanowned property in foreign countries on Form TFR-500 has been extended to November 1, 1943. Previously, reports by persons in the United States were required to be submitted by August 31, 1943. A careful survey of the work so far accomplished and of the reports filed since June 3, 1943, when the census was announced, and discussions with various groups of persons required to report and with the Federal Reserve Banks, which are distributing the forms, has indicated that many persons will not be able to complete their reports by August 31, 1943, without undue hardship. While the Treasury Department is anxious to secure the vital information which the reports will supply, it recognizes the growing shortage of manpower in various industries and the difficulties of obtaining proper clerical assistance at this time. It has also been pointed out by certain companies having extensive foreign holdings that the long period of time required for transmittal of mail to and from foreign areas might in some instances prevent these companies from furnishing as complete and accurate information as could be accomplished if a somewhat longer time were granted. In view of these considerations, it seemed preferable to give a general extension of time to all persons affected rather than to require applications for extensions. It is believed that an announcement of the extension at this time will enable those required to report to plan their work on the census in such a way as to make most efficient use of their available facilities. It will be of definite assistance to the Treasury, however, if those persons having their data available and now in the process of compiling their reports file them as soon as they are completed in order that the Treasury may proceed on classification and analysis. The final filing date of November 1, 1943, will apply to persons abroad who are subject to the jurisdiction of the United States as well as to persons within the United States. Additional copies of this circular will be furnished upon request. A L L A N SPROUL, President. r
