dicate that most persons subject
to the $5.00 automobile tax due
July l, 1942, have already pur-
chased the required Stamp but
that In some sections many auto-
mobile owners have failed to pur-
chase this stamp. Beginning .Au-

sons subject to the tax, using
their cars without the stamp af-
fixed, will be vigorously prosecut-
ed. Such tax evaders will-be sub-
ject to a $25 fine and thirty days
imprisonment in~~a3dltibn to pay-
ment of- the tax. This' automobile
use tax is a war measure, and all
patriotic people should respond
The most important thing to re-
member is that the $5.00 autombr
bile tax Stamp cannot be pur-
chased from Post Offices after
July 31, 1942, and purchases will
have to be made from the Collec-
tor of Internal Revenue, and late
purchasers will be required to es-
tablish the fact under oath that
they have not used their cars
prior to the purchase date of the
Stamp, in order to avoid penalty.
This is a final notice, and fur-
ther leniency ^annot be extended.
