FEDERAL HOME LOAN BANK OF DALLAS FILES (8-K) Disclosing Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant, Financial Statements and Exhibits

June 5, 2014



Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

The Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (the "Bank") obtains most of its funds from the sale of debt securities, known as consolidated obligations, in the capital markets. Consolidated obligations, which consist of bonds and discount notes, are the joint and several obligations of the 12 Federal Home Loan Banks (each individually, a "FHLBank" and collectively, the "FHLBanks"). Consolidated obligations are sold to the public through the Office of Finance, a joint office of the 12 FHLBanks, using authorized securities dealers. Consolidated obligations are backed only by the financial resources of the 12 FHLBanks. Consolidated obligations are not obligations of, nor are they guaranteed by, the United States Government.

Schedule A, which is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is hereby incorporated by reference into this Item 2.03, summarizes all consolidated obligation bonds committed to be issued by the FHLBanks for which the Bank is the primary obligor, on the trade date(s) indicated. To the extent applicable, Schedule A also includes any consolidated obligations for which the Bank assumed the primary repayment obligation from another FHLBank on the trade date(s) indicated. Debt assumptions, if any, are identified by an asterisk (*) in the "Trade Date" column of Schedule A. Due to their short-term maturities of one year or less, consolidated obligation discount notes issued on behalf of the Bank in the ordinary course of business are not included in Schedule A. Furthermore, consolidated obligations that may have been issued on behalf of other FHLBanks as primary obligors are not included in Schedule A.

In reviewing the information contained in this Current Report on Form 8-K, please note the following:

? the Bank has not made a judgment as to the materiality of any particular consolidated obligation bond or bonds;

? Schedule A does not include any information with regard to interest rate exchange agreements (or other derivative instruments) into which the Bank has entered (or may enter) as a result of its asset/liability management and that may be associated, directly or indirectly, with one or more of the reported consolidated obligation bonds;

? the information provided in Schedule A will not enable a reader to compute changes in the total consolidated obligations outstanding for which the Bank is the primary obligor because the schedule does not include consolidated obligation discount notes nor does it address whether the proceeds from the issuance of the reported consolidated obligation bond(s) will be used to satisfy called or maturing consolidated obligations or for other business purposes. The Bank reports the total consolidated obligations outstanding for which it is the primary obligor in the Bank's periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC");

? the par amounts reported in Schedule A represent the principal amounts of the reported consolidated obligation bonds, which may not correspond to the amounts reported in the Bank's financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles contained in its periodic reports filed with the SEC, because the par amounts do not take into account any discounts, premiums or hedging adjustments that may be associated with the consolidated obligation bonds; and

? the footnotes accompanying Schedule A are intended to include descriptions of the various types and styles of consolidated obligation bonds that are most likely to be issued on behalf of (or assumed by) the Bank; the footnotes do not include, nor are they intended to include, descriptions of all of the various types and styles of consolidated obligation bonds that may be issued on behalf of other FHLBanks as primary obligors.
