FEDERAL RESERVE BANK OF DALLAS F IS C A L A G E N T O F T H E U N IT E D S T A T E S Dallas, Texas, November 10, 1966 TREASURY FINANCING To A ll B a n k in g Institutions a n d Others Concerned in the Eleventh Federal Reserve District: There is quoted below a press statement issued today by the Treasury Department in regard to current financing: T R E A S U R Y BILL O F F E R IN G O F $1.2 BILLIO N The Treasury announced today an auction of $1.2 billion of bills maturing in March, April and M ay 1967. In this offering, the bills maturing March 31, April 30 and M ay 31, which were originally sold as 12-month bills, will be reopened in the amount of $400 million each — a total of $1.2 billion of additional cash. The auction will be on November 17 with payment on November 25. In this “strip” offering, subscribers will put in for equal amounts of each of the three bills being reopened. Commercial banks may pay for their own purchases and for their customers’ purchases by crediting Treasury Tax and Loan Accounts. The sale of these bills will have the effect of integrating the March, April and M ay monthend bill issues more speedily into the new cycle of monthly sales of 12- and 9-month Treasury bills. With this offering, it was indicated, the Treasury will have nearly completed its new cash borrowing in the market for the current calendar year. An additional cash offering, of approxi mately similar size and in the form of Tax Anticipation Bills, is now planned for payment in December. The official announcement and tender forms for the $1.2 billion strip of Treasury bills to be issued on November 25, 1966, are enclosed. Tenders for the additional bills will be received at this bank and its branches at El Paso, Houston and San Antonio, up to twelve-thirty p.m., Central Standard Time, Thursday, November 17, 1966. Tenders may not be entered by telephone. Yours very truly, Watrous H.

The bills offered hereunder will be issued on a discount basis under competitive and noncompetitive bidding as hereinafter provided, and at maturity their face amount will be payable without interest. They will be issued in bearer form only, and in denominations of $1,000, $5,000, $10,000, $50,000, $100,000, $500,000 and $1,000,000 (maturity value). Tenders will be received at Federal Reserve Banks and Branches up to the closing hour, one-thirty p.m., Eastern Standard Time, Thursday, November 17, 1966. Tenders will not be received at the Treasury Department, Washington. In the case of competitive tenders the price offered must be expressed on the basis of 100, with not more than three decimals, e.g., 99.925. Fractions may not be used. A single price must be submitted for each unit of $3,000, or even multiple thereof. A unit represents $1,000 face amount of each issue of bills offered hereunder, as previously described. It is urged that tenders be made on the printed forms and forwarded in the special envelopes which will be supplied by Federal Reserve Banks and Branches on application therefor. Banking institutions generally may submit tenders for account of customers provided the names of the customers are set forth in such tenders. Others than banking institutions will not be permitted to submit tenders except for their own account. Tenders will be received without deposit from incorporated banks and trust companies and from responsible and recognized dealers in investment securities. Tenders from others must be accompanied by payment o f 2 percent of the face amount of Treasury bills applied for, unless the tenders are accompanied by an express guaranty o f payment by an incorporated bank or trust company. All bidders are required to agree not to purchase or to sell, or to make any agreements with respect to the purchase or sale or other disposition of any bills of these additional issues at a specific rate or price until after one-thirty p.m., Eastern Standard Time, Thursday, November 17, 1966. Immediately after the closing hour, tenders will be opened at the Federal Reserve Banks and Branches, following which public announcement will be made by the Treasury Department o f the amount and price range of accepted bids. Those submitting tenders will be advised of the acceptance or rejection thereof. The Secretary of the Treasury expressly reserves the right to accept or reject any or all tenders, in whole or in part, and his action in any such respect shall be final. Noncompetitive tenders for $120,000 or less (in even multiples of $3,000) without stated price from any one bidder will be accepted in full at the average price (in three decimals) of accepted competitive bids. Settlement for accepted tenders in accordance with the bids must be made or completed at the Federal Reserve Bank on November 25, 1966, in cash or other immediately available funds or in a like face amount of Treasury bills maturing November 25, 1966, provided, however, any qualified depositary will be per mitted to make payment by credit in its Treasury Tax and Loan Account for Treasury bills allotted to it for itself and its customers up to any amount for which it shall be qualified in excess of existing deposits when so notified by the Federal Reserve Bank of its district. Cash and exchange tenders will receive equal treatment. Cash adjustments will be made for differences between the par value of maturing bills accepted in exchange and the issue price of the new bills. The income derived from Treasury bills, whether interest or gain from the sale or other disposition of the bills, does not have any exemption, as such, and loss from the sale or other disposition o f Treasury bills does not have any special treatment, as such, under the Internal Revenue Code of 1954. The bills are subject to estate, inheritance, gift or other excise taxes, whether Federal or State, but are exempt from all taxation now or hereafter imposed on the principal or interest thereof by any State, or any of the possessions o f the United States, or by any local taxing authority. For purposes of taxation the amount of discount at which Treasury bills are originally sold by the United States is considered to be interest. Under Sections 454 (b ) and 1221 (5 ) o f the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 the amount of discount at which bills issued hereunder are sold is not considered to accrue until such bills are sold, redeemed or otherwise disposed of, and such bills are excluded from consideration as capital assets. Accordingly, the owner of Treasury bills (other than life insurance companies) issued hereunder need include in his income tax return only the difference between the price paid for such bills, whether on original issue or on subsequent purchase, and the amount actually received either upon sale or redemption at maturity during the taxable year for which the return is made, as ordinary gain or loss. Purchasers of a strip of the bills offered hereunder should, for tax purposes, take such bills on to their books on the basis of their purchase price prorated to each o f the three outstanding issues using as a basis for proration the closing market prices for each of the issues on November 25, 1966. (Federal Reserve Banks will have available a list of these market prices, based on the mean between the bid and asked quotations furnished by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.) Treasury Department Circular No. 418, Revised, and this notice, prescribe the terms of the Treasury bills and govern the conditions of their issue. Copies of the circular may be obtained from any Federal Reserve Bank or Branch. Paym ent for these Treasury bills m ust be m ad e or com pleted a t this b a n k or app ro priate branch on N o v e m b e r 25, 1966, in cash or other im m e d iate ly a v a ila b le fu nd s or in a like face am o u n t of Treasury bills m aturing N ove m b e r 25, 1966, provided, how ever, a n y qualified d e po sitary w ill be permitted to m ake p aym e n t b y credit in its Treasury Tax a n d Loan Account for Treasury bills allotted to it for itself a n d its custom ers (up to the am o u n t for w hich it sh all be qualified in excess of existing deposits).
