I inherited old paper Treasury bonds and don't know what to do with them.


  • Before I give TreasuryDirect my SSN, is it a legitimate US bond site?

  • Has anyone been able to mass upload the bond numbers so I can calculate how much tax I will owe?

if you are a talking about https://www.treasurydirect.gov/ then yes it is a legitimate site. It is a US government site run by the US department of the treasury.

TreasuryDirect is brought to you by the U.S. Department of the Treasury Bureau of the Fiscal Service. The mission of the Fiscal Service is to borrow the money needed to operate the federal government and to account for the resulting debt. We do this by offering you a variety of savings and investment products.

I entered a long list of bonds a few years ago into the system. I don't think it was very hard to do.

  • Thanks. Did you enter your bond one-at-a-time or upload a spreadsheet or csv?

    It was about 5 years ago, so I don't remember how I did it. It is also possible the interface changed. I probably did have them in a file and then uploaded them. Sep 22, 2020 at 17:05
