Syllabus

A fire and marine insurance company in Pennsylvania is not required to maintain a reserve against unpaid losses by the law of that state (P.L. 1911, p. 607), and therefore amounts added by it to such a reserve may not be deducted in determining the company's taxable net income under § 38 of the Federal Corporation Excise Tax Act of August 5, 1909, c. 6, 36 Stat. 11, 112.

224 F. 657 reversed.

The case is stated in the opinion.
