PRELIMINARY ANNOUNCEMENT
TAX ANTICIPATION SERIES-TREASURY BILLS
To An Banking Institutions and Others Concerned
in the Eleventh Federal Reserve District:
There is quoted below a press statement issued today by the Treasury Department
in regard to a special offering of Treasury Bills:
“The Treasury announced today that on Wednesday, March 10, $1.5 billion
of Treasury tax bills will be offered for cash subscription. Books will be open for
tenders on Tuesday, March 16, with payment to be made in cash on Monday,
March 22. The bills will mature on June 24, but may be used at par for payment
of taxes due on June 15.
“On March 22, $5.9 billion of tax certificates mature. These certificates will
be paid off out of tax receipts and the proceeds of this offering of Treasury tax
bills. Accordingly, Tax and Loan Account credit cannot be given on subscriptions
to the new bills.
“The decision to offer tax bills at this time postpones consideration of longerterm financing until later in the fiscal year.”
The formal invitation for tenders and forms will be placed in the mail as soon as
available so as to reach all banking institutions in time for tenders to be submitted by
March 16, the date on which they will be accepted.
Yours very truly.
WATROUS H. IRONS
President
