To all Treasury Tax and Loan Depositaries, and Others
Concerned, in the Second Federal Reserve D istrict:

A t the request o f the T reasury Departm ent, we transm it a cop y o f a letter dated M ay 25,
1953, from the F iscal A ssistant S ecretary o f the Treasury, outlining procedures to be follow ed in
m aking paym ent o f June 1953 taxes w ith T reasury Bills, T ax A nticipation Series, m aturing
June 19, 1953.
The T reasury has announced that D irectors o f Internal Revenue w ill be instructed to make
special deposits with F ederal R eserve Banks, during the period June 1 through J u ly 3, 1953, o f
checks o f $10,000 or m ore representing payments o f individual or corporate incom e taxes, excess
profits taxes, interest, or penalties, including deficiencies and payments o f estim ated taxes. The
T reasu ry has also announced that draw ee banks qualified as Special D epositaries o f P ublic M oneys
m ay receive 50 per cent o f these rem ittances fo r deposit in their T reasury T ax and L oan Accounts.
W e w ill prepare daily a special form o f cash letter, w ith an attached certificate form , fo r the
June tax collections. U ntil further notice, the amount shown in the certificate w ill be f o r 50 per
cent o f the amount o f those checks eligible fo r credit to T reasury T ax and L oan Accounts. Special
depositaries, w ishing to accept funds equal to 50 per cent o f the amount o f the cash letter fo r deposit
in their T reasury T ax and L oan Accounts, should execute and return the certificate attached to
the cash letter, in accordance w ith the instructions contained in the letter.
W ithdraw als from funds arising fro m the June tax payments in the T ax and L oan A ccounts
w ill be made in such manner as required by the needs o f the Treasury.
F o r reasons explained by the F isca l A ssistant S ecretary in his letter, those checks o f $10,000 or
m ore draw n on funds that arose from the redem ption o f the T ax A nticipation Series T reasury bills
or T reasu ry Savings notes w ill not be eligible fo r credit to T reasury T ax and L oan Accounts. H ow ­
ever, in com puting the amount to be deposited in T reasury T ax and L oan Accounts, w e w ill include
in the certificate attached to the special cash letter 50 per cent o f the amount o f those checks drawn
on a depositary presenting T reasury Bills, T ax A nticipation Series, due June 19, 1953, fo r cash
redem ption fo r its own account, i f the depositary certifies that—
(1 ) The bills were acquired b y purchase p rior to June 1, 1953 and were held continuously
until date o f maturity, or
(2 ) They were acquired on and after June 1, and paym ent o f the purchase price was not
credited in a custom er’s deposit account on its books.
Requests to apply the T ax A nticipation bills to the paym ent o f taxes should be made on F orm
T X 1. A request by a bank o r trust com pany to redeem T ax A nticipation bills, m aturing June 19,
1953, should be made on F orm T X 2. Copies o f both form s are enclosed.

May 25, 1953
T o Treasury T ax and Loan Depositaries,
and Others Concerned:

Treasury Bills, T a x Anticipation Series, dated November 21, 1952, maturing June 19, 1953, are outstanding in
the amount of $2,002,666,000. These Treasury bills are acceptable in payment of Federal income taxes due June 15,
1953, and were issued to enable taxpayers to invest their accumulated tax reserves in an interest-bearing security
which will be received in payment o f Federal income taxes.
In order to facilitate the use of Treasury Bills, T a x Anticipation Series, by taxpayers in payment o f their income
taxes, the Treasury has authorized Federal Reserve Banks and Branches, as fiscal agents o f the United States, to
accept such securities on or before the income tax instalment date, from or for account o f Federal taxpayers, and to
issue receipts to Directors of Internal Revenue showing that such Treasury bills are held for the purpose of applying
the proceeds o f redemption to the payment of income taxes of the taxpayer named in the receipts.
T w o copies o f each receipt will be delivered to the taxpayer concerned, who will attach one copy to his income
tax return filed with the Director o f Internal Revenue. Directors of Internal Revenue have been instructed (Internal
Revenue Mimeograph N o. 122, Coll. No. 24, dated February 2, 1953) to accept tax returns to which are attached
copies of receipts addressed to them by Federal Reserve Banks and Branches that Treasury bills due June 19, 1953
are being held for application of the proceeds of redemption to the payment of income taxes due on June 15, 1953, of
the taxpayer named in the receipt.
The continuing policy o f the Treasury is not to look with favor upon efforts by banks which are special deposi­
taries for Treasury tax and loan accounts to encourage their customers to sell to them their Treasury Bills, Tax
Anticipation Series, maturing June 19, 1953, and to accept payment for the Treasury bills by a deposit credit in
their checking accounts, or to present Treasury Savings notes for cash redemption, with the proceeds being deposited
in their checking accounts, and to pay their taxes by checks drawn on the taxpayers’ accounts with the banks.
Depositaries following this practice apparently do so in expectation that under arrangements which have been in effect
for quarterly tax payments since March, 1951, they may obtain a deposit in their Treasury tax and loan accounts for
an amount equal to the taxpayers’ checks (fo r checks over $10,000 in amount) drawn on their accounts with the
banks, and in regular course they can present the Treasury bills to the Treasury for cash redemption at maturity.
These practices by depositaries will increase the amount of such bills or Savings notes presented for cash
redemption in advance of the availability of Treasury receipts from the income tax instalment due on June 15, 1953,
and will make it more difficult for the Treasury and the Federal Reserve System to handle the large income tax col­
lections during June in a manner that will maintain stability in the money market.
Accordingly, the Treasury will follow the same procedure as was adopted in connection with the March 15, 1952
and June 15, 1952 income tax instalments. Depositaries having Treasury tax and loan accounts are advised that to the
extent they present Treasury bills maturing June 19, 1953 for cash redemption for their own account, or if tax­
payers present their Treasury Savings notes for cash redemption, and use the proceeds o f redemption through deposit
with and withdrawal from depositaries by checks in payment of their June 15, 1953 income taxes, an equal amount
o f income tax checks o f $10,000 and over drawn on such banks in payment of income taxes due June 15, 1953 will
be withheld from deposit in their tax and loan accounts.
However, if a depositary presenting Treasury Bills, T a x Anticipation Series, due June 19, 1953, for cash
redemption for its own account, can certify that they were acquired by purchase prior to June 1, 1953, and were
held continuously until date of maturity, or that they were acquired on and after June 1st, and payment of the pur­
chase price was not credited in a customer’s deposit account on its books, such bills will not be included in arriving
at the amount of income tax checks of $10,000 and over to be withheld from deposit in their tax and loan accounts.
