Recovery of U.S. Head Tax.

Passengers who desire to claim refund of Head Tax are required to comply with the following :—

  1. Temporary visitors to the United States should state in Question 24 on the U.S. Declaration Form, which should be completed at the time of booking, that they intend to leave the United States within a period of 6o days from the date of entry
  2. Application should be made to the Purser of the Westbound steamer for receipt covering the U.S. Head Tax paid. This is necessary to facilitate refund of the Head Tax after Passengers have left the United States
  3. Passengers should apply to the U.S. Immigrant Inspector at the port of arrival for Head Tax Transit Certificate (U.S. Form 514) without which form no refund of Head Tax will be considered by the U.S. Immigration Authorities, even though Passengers should leave the U.S. within 6o days and would otherwise be entitled to refund of the Head Tax under existing U.S. law
  4. Refund of Head Tax will only be made by the U.S. Authorities when completed Forms 514 are filed with them within a period of 120 days from the date of entry into the U.S. as shewn on the top right hand corner of the U.S. Form 514. No application for refund of Head Tax will be considered by the U.S. Authorities after the expiry of such period

Although the period of time between arrival at a Canadian port and departure from the United States may exceed 60 days, this does not necessarily mean that persons in this category are 'prohibited from securing refund of Head Tax, so long as the actual period spent in the U.S. does not exceed 6o days. The application for refund, however, must be filed with the U.S. Immigration Authorities within 120 days of the actual date of crossing the border from Canada into the U.S.

Passengers returning. to Europe in Cunard Line steamers may—on presentation of the necessary documents—viz. :-- Transit Certificate Form 514 completed, and the Company's receipt for Head Tax paid—obtain refund of Head Tax from the Purser, providing the Passengers have left the U.S. within the prescribed period of 6o days, and the completed Form 514 can be filed with the U.S. Authorities within 120 days of entry into the United States.

Refund of Head Tax is subject to strict compliance with the above procedure.

We recommend viewing Chicago Film Archives' promotional film produced by the Cunard Line during the 1920s that begins with the RMS Berengaria leaving New York harbor on route to Cherbourg or Southampton. The film highlights the features of the ship as well as ship entertainment.
