Creation and Authority.--The Treasury Department was created by act of Congress approved September 2, 1789 (1 Stat. 65; 5 U.S.C. 241). Many subsequent acts have figured in the development of the Department, delegating new duties to its charge and establishing the numerous bureaus and divisions which now compose the Treasury.
As the Treasury Department is essentially a service organization, its regular operations have been increased by the War Program.
Purpose.--The original act established the Department to superintend and manage the national finances. This act charged the Secretary of the Treasury with the preparation of plans for the improvement and management of the revenue and the support of the public credit. It further provided that he should prescribe the forms for keeping and rendering all manner of public accounts and for the making of returns. He was empowered to grant, subject to the limitations of the amended act, all warrants for moneys to be issued from the Treasury pursuant to legal appropriations, and to furnish information, upon request, to either or both branches of Congress on any matter referred to him or pertaining to his office. The act further stated it to be the duty of the Secretary "generally to perform all such services relative to the finances as he shall be directed to perform" (1 Stat. 65; 5 U.S.C. 242).
With the expansion of the country and its financial structure, frequent revisions and amendments to the act have so broadened the scope of the Treasury Department that it now embraces a score or more of diversified bureaus, divisions, and offices, and many new duties have been delegated to its charge. Besides managing the financial affairs of the Nation, the Department now controls the coinage and printing of money and the procurement of Federal supplies. The Narcotics Bureau and the Secret Service have been placed under the supervision and jurisdiction of the Treasury Department.
The Secretary of the Treasury is required by law to submit an annual report to Congress upon the condition of the finances, and to make public the first of each month the last preceding weekly statement of the Treasury (5 Stat. 696; 5 U.S.C. 271).
The Secretary of the Treasury is chairman of the Board of Trustees, Endowment Fund, American Red Cross; chairman, Library Trustees of the Federal Old-Age and Survivors Insurance Trust Fund. He is a member of the Board of Trustees of the Postal Savings System, the Smithsonian Institution, the Foreign Service Buildings Commission, the National Archives Council, the National Park Trust Fund Board, the Board of Trustees of the National Gallery of Art, the Foreign-Trade Zones Board, the National Munitions Control Board, and the Censorship Policy Board.
Organization.--Affairs of the Treasury Department are generally supervised by the Secretary of the Treasury. He is assisted in the management and direction of the Department's numerous and varied branches by the Under Secretary of the Treasury, two Assistant Secretaries of the Treasury, the Fiscal Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, the General Counsel, and a staff of administrative, special, and technical assistants who supervise and correlate the activities of the different bureaus, offices, and divisions. Each bureau is under the general direction of a chief, who reports to the Secretary and his immediate assistants.
The principal branches of the Department are as follows:
Bureau of the Comptroller of the Currency
Bureau of Customs
Bureau of Engraving and Printing
Bureau of Internal Revenue
Bureau of the Mint
Bureau of Narcotics
Committee on Practice
Division of Monetary Research
Division of Personnel
Division of Research and Statistics

Office of the Fiscal Assistant Secretary

Bureau of the Public Debt
Office of the Treasurer of the United States
War Finance Division

Office of Superintendent of Treasury Buildings
United States Secret Service
Office of the Tax Legislative Counsel
The Bureau of the Comptroller of the Currency was created by act of Congress approved February 25, 1863 (12 Stat. 665).
Bureau of the Comptroller of the Currency
Supervision of National Banks.--The Comptroller has general supervision over all national banks in operation, the organization of new national banks, the consolidation of national banks, or State with national, conversion of State banks into national, the granting of rights to operate branches by national banks, and the administration, through receivers, of any that fail. He also receives reports from banks in voluntary liquidation and from trustees holding assets for the benefit of depositors and banks reorganized under section 207 of the Bank Conservation Act, March 9, 1933 (48 Stat. 2; 12 U.S.C. 201). He requires national banks to submit reports of condition at least three times a year. The Comptroller also supervises all banks and trust companies, building and loan associations not chartered under the Federal Home Loan Bank Act, as amended, and credit unions not chartered under the Federal Credit Unions Act, doing business in the District of Columbia. The Comptroller, in accordance with present status, is responsible for the preparation of an annual report to Congress on the status of national banks.
Appointment of Receivers and Forfeiture of Charter.--He is empowered to appoint a receiver for any national bank which he finds insolvent, and may bring suit for forfeiture of charter against any national bank for deliberate violations of the national banking laws.
Appointment of Conservators.--The Comptroller may appoint conservators to administer the affairs of national banks pending reorganization or ultimate receivership, and is required to approve reorganization plans for such banks if nonassenting creditors or stockholders are to be found.
Examination of National Banks.--The Comptroller's office maintains a staff of examiners who make regular examinations of all national banks, reporting on the condition of solvency and state of compliance with the provisions of law with respect to such banks.
Issue of Bond-Secured National Bank Notes.--Until August 1, 1935, the Comptroller had charge of the issue and redemption of
national bank notes secured by United States bonds. The expiration of the 3-year privilege provided by section 29 of the Federal Home Loan Bank Act of July 22, 1932 (47 Stat. 740), and redemption of the consols and Panama Canal 2-percent bonds on July 1 and August 1, 1935, respectively, resulted in the discontinuance of circulation by national banks after the last-named date. The Comptroller still is charged with the responsibility for issue and redemption of Federal Reserve notes and Federal Reserve Bank notes.
Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.--The Comptroller of the Currency is an ex-officio member of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.
The Bureau of Customs was created by the act approved March 3, 1927 (44 Stat. 1381; 5 U.S.C. 281).
Bureau of Customs
General Duties.--The Bureau of Customs, under the Commissioner, administers the powers and duties vested in the Secretary of the Treasury pertaining to the importation and entry of merchandise into and the exportation of merchandise from the United States, and to the regulation of certain marine activities.
Collection of Duties and Law Enforcement.--The Bureau's principal function is the assessment and collection of import duties and, incident to this, the prevention of smuggling, including the smuggling of contraband, such as narcotics. The Bureau cooperates with other Government agencies in enforcing the preventive, sanitary, and other laws relating to articles brought into the United States, and in some cases to outgoing articles. It maintains a service which investigates smuggling activities, compliance with the customs and navigation laws, and such administrative matters as may require investigation.
Marine Activities.--Under Executive Order 9083, dated February 28, 1942, the Bureau handles the registry, enrollment, and licensing of vessels; admeasurement of vessels; collection of tonnage taxes; entrance and clearance of vessels and aircraft; regulation of vessels in the coasting and fishing trades; use of foreign vessels in the territorial waters of the United States; recording of mortgages and sales of vessels; protection of steerage passengers; and the remission and mitigation of fines, penalties, and forfeitures incurred under the laws governing these matters.
War Activities.--In connection with the export control program, the Bureau of Customs is charged with inspection of all export declarations and permits presented as a prerequisite to export in order to insure compliance with the licensing provisions of the State Department and the Foreign Economic Administration to prevent the exportation of controlled materials of eery description except under proper license or permit. When deemed necessary, an actual examination of exported articles is made by customs officers to insure compliance with export control requirements. on the request of the Foreign Economic Administration, the customs investigate unit conducts field investigations of individuals, firms, and corporations conducting business relating to exports of merchandise from the United States, of violations of the Export Control Act, and of suspected irregular exports.
The Bureau assists the State Department in the supervision and control of the departure from and entry into the United States of persons whose departure or entrance would be prejudicial to the interests of the United States. It also examines, on behalf of the State Department, passports of American citizens departing from the United States at seaports and airports.
By direction of the Secretary of the Treasury, the Bureau of Customs cooperates with the Foreign Funds Control of the Department by maintaining physical control of persons and their effects entering and leaving the United States to insure that no funds, securities, or property are taken out of or brought into the United States except in such amounts or values as may be authorized by the Secretary of the Treasury. By physical control of exports and imports it enforces the prohibition against trading with persons or firms on the "Proclaimed List of Certain Blocked Nationals." The persons and baggage of suspects entering the United States are searched to prevent the bringing of gold into this country in violation of the Gold Reserve Act of January 30, 1934 (48 Stat. 337; U.S.C. titles 12 and 31).
The Bureau of Customs enforces the rationing orders issued by the Office of Price Administration insofar as such orders apply (1) to supplies and stores for vessels entering United States ports, (2) to persons entering the United States, and (3) to merchandise imported into the United States.
The Bureau of Customs was designated by the Secretary of the Treasury to administer the duties imposed upon the Secretary by section 3 (c) of the Trading with the Enemy Act, approved October 6, 1917, and Executive Order 2729-A (sec. XI) of October 12, 1917, and to issue licenses under such authority relative to tangible communications sent or taken out of, or brought into, the United States except in the regular course of the mail. The Customs Service is responsible for intercepting such tangible communications carried on vessels, vehicles, and persons arriving from and departing to foreign countries for the purpose of examining such communications to determine whether they contain matter inimical to the interests of the United States or helpful to the enemy.
Because of the location of its officers at strategic seaboard and land border ports, the Bureau of Customs has been called upon to perform numerous miscellaneous duties having to do with the prevention of espionage and sabotage, and to cooperate with the captain of the port or other designated officer in port protection work.
