FEDERAL RESERVE BANK OF DALLAS F IS C A L A G E N T O F TH E U N ITED ST A T E S Dallas, Texas, February 18, 1959 SPECIAL HANDLING OF TAX PAYMENTS To all Banking Institutions and Others Concerned in the Eleventh Federal Reserve District: The Treasury Department has announced that the procedure customarily in effect during periods of heavy tax payments with respect to the special handling of large payments of corpora tion income taxes, will be effective for the March 1959 tax collections. This arrangement will be applicable only to the extent of 50% of the amount of tax payments of $10,000 or over. During the period from March 1, 1959 through April 3, 1959, ( 1 ) Directors o f Internal Revenue will make special deposits with the Federal Reserve banks of checks representing tax remittances of $10,000 or over covering payments of Corporation income taxes, (2 ) Federal Reserve banks will prepare daily a “Special Draft for Credit in Treasury Tax and Loan Account” in an amount not to exceed 50% of the aggregate amount of such checks drawn on each Special Depositary, and ( 3 ) in accordance with conditions set forth on the face of the special draft, Special Depositaries may exercise their options to accept for deposit in their Treasury Tax and Loan Accounts funds in an amount equal to the amount of the special draft. The Treasury Department has indicated that it may be necessary to either increase or de crease the percentage amount of such checks for credit in the Treasury Tax and Loan Account from time to time during the period, if such action is required to prevent undue fluctuations in the amount of the balances in the accounts of the Treasurer of the United States with Federal Reserve banks. N o distinction will be made between these special credits and other credits to Treasury Tax and Loan Accounts. Calls for withdrawals of balances in Treasury Tax and Loan Accounts will be made as required by the needs of the Treasury. This bank will be pleased to furnish any additional information in this connection that may be desired. Yours very truly, Watrous H.
