St* 782
Federal Reserve Board,
Dec* 20, 1919*

BAIIK DEBITS
Below is given the Federal Reserve Board's weekly statement of debits to
individual account, reported through the Federal Reserve banks by over 150 of
the country's more important clearing houses. Transactions cover the weekly
periods ending Wednesday December 17 and 10, of the present year, and in case
of most of the reporting centers also the weekly period ending a year earlier,
i .e ., December 18, 191g«
Aggregate debits to individual account, largely as the result of the
last installment of this year's income and excess profits taxes due on
December 1 5 » were 1-1/2 billions in excess of the figures for the week
before. All important centers participated in the increase. For the 147
centers included in the reports for corresponding weeks in 1918 and 19.19
an increase in debits to individual account from 7*6 to about 11 billions
is shown, all the important centers reporting larger figlares than a year ago.
The statement closes with a recapitulation giving comparative figures by re­
serve districts for 155 centers reporting complete data for the two most recent
weeks, also like figures for the 1U7 centers for which data are available.for the
past week and the week ending December lg of last year.
