all savers certificate -- a one-year certificate of deposit account, with a fixed rate tied to new Treasury bills, issued from October 1, 1981, through December 31, 1982, with a minimum deposit of $500. The saver received a once-in-a-lifetime exemption from federal income taxes for ASC earnings of up to $1,000 ($2,000 on a joint return). All savers certificates were authorized by the Economic Recovery Tax Act of 1981 as a means of attracting funds primarily to thrift institutions.
