In the case of bonds registered in the name of a trust or estate where a corpora tion is trustee, executor or administrator, and in the case of bonds registered in the name of a corporation, partnership, etc., the Em ployer Identification num ber should be used. To enable this bank to issue Series H Savings Bonds in conformity with the Treasury’s requirements, commercial banks and others assisting individuals in the completion of applica tions for purchases, reissues and exchanges involving Series H bonds are requested to inform the individuals of the need for including the tax account num ber on the applications.
