            SUBJECT TO COMPLETION, PROSPECTUS DATED JANUARY 19, 2001



                                               TAX EXEMPT SECURITIES TRUST
                                                          FLORIDA TRUST 99
                                                 (A UNIT INVESTMENT TRUST)


           A final prospectus for a prior Series of Tax Exempt  Securities Trust
is hereby incorporated by reference and used as a preliminary prospectus for Tax
Exempt Securities Trust Series, Florida Trust 99. Except as indicated below, the
narrative  information and structure of the final  prospectus which includes the
new Trust will be  substantially  the same as that of the  previous  prospectus.
Although the previous prospectus includes the specific trusts indicated therein,
the specific trusts included with this new Trust when deposited will differ from
such previous trusts. Information with respect to this Trust, including pricing,
the size and  composition  of the Trust  portfolio,  the  number of units of the
Trust, dates and summary information regarding the characteristics of securities
to be deposited  in the Trust is not now  available  and will be different  from
that shown since each trust has a unique portfolio. Accordingly, the information
contained  herein with regard to the previous  Trusts  should be  considered  as
being included for informational purposes only. The estimated current return and
long-term  return for the Trust will depend on the  interest  rates and offering
side  evaluation  of the  securities in the Trust and may vary  materially  from
those of previous  trusts.  Investors  should contact account  executives of the
underwriters  who will be informed of the expected  effective date of this Trust
and who will be supplied with complete information with respect to such Trust on
the  day of and  immediately  prior  to the  effectiveness  of the  registration
statement relating to units of the Trust.

           The   Securities   and  Exchange   Commission  has  not  approved  or
disapproved these securities or passed upon the adequacy of this Prospectus. Any
representation to the contrary is a criminal offense.

The  information in this  prospectus is not complete and may be changed.  We may
not sell  these  securities  until the  registration  statement  filed  with the
Securities and Exchange Commission is effective. This prospectus is not an offer
to sell the securities and it is not soliciting an offer to buy these securities
in any state where the offer or sale is not permitted.
