Only about $80,000,000 of sliort-term certificates requiring" to be refunded at maturity remain to be redeemed! Outstanding tax certificates, issued in anticipation of income and profits tax installment dates for the purpose of relieving the quarterly strain on the banks, amount to $2,935,949,500, but In no instance exceed the estimated.. amount of taxes, and accordingly no funds'will have to be provided to' meet them.
