# Does the government ever pay back its debt from the OMO to the Fed? [closed]

I'm getting confused about how exactly does money being created by the Fed.

From investopidia.com:

The Fed could initiate open market operations (OMO), where it buys and sells Treasurys to inject or absorb money.


If the Fed holds the Treasurys until maturity doesn't it need to be paid back the par? So how exactly does extra money being created?

Thanks

• You’ve asked seven or eight questions, some of which have been answered before. I’d recommend narrowing this to a single question that hasn’t yet been answered. – dismalscience Jun 13 '20 at 16:34
• To amplify the previous comment, you literally have two questions in your question title. – Brian Romanchuk Jun 13 '20 at 17:25
• You reduced the number of questions in the text, but the title is still two questions. – Brian Romanchuk Jun 13 '20 at 20:40
