So, I'm browsing around the web, researching, and trying to find info on funding of the US Dept. of the Treasury, and I come across this FAQ on
Frequently Asked Questions about the Public Debt
Financing the Debt
Why does the debt sometimes decrease?
The Public Debt Outstanding decreases when there are more redemptions of Treasury securities than there are issues.
How do you make a contribution to reduce the debt?
There are two ways for you to make a contribution to reduce the debt:
- You can make a contribution online either by credit card, checking or savings account at Pay.gov
- You can write a check payable to the Bureau of the Public Debt, and in the memo section, notate that it's a Gift to reduce the Debt Held by the
Public. Mail your check to:
Attn Dept G
Bureau of the Public Debt
P. O. Box 2188
Parkersburg, WV 26106-2188
I found it extremely amusing
Disappointed that it's just about the most they had to offer on the subject, though. Thought I would share anyhow...
