The decision by the Supreme Court in 1932 of the case of First National Bank of Boston v. Maine represented the culmination of a fairly brief but apparently decisive effort by that Court substantially to do away with the taxation of intangible property by more than one state. Successive decisions within the three years previous had sought to do away with such taxation of debts ( no matter how evidenced) by more than one state; and First National Bank v. Maine laid down the same rule for corporate stock.
