Maturing October 30, 1947

To all Incorporated Banks and Trust Companies in the
Second Federal Reserve District and Others Concerned:
Following is the text of a notice today made public by the T reasury Department with respect to a new offering of Treasury
bills payable at maturity without interest to be sold on a discount basis under competitive and non-competitive bidding.
FOR RELEASE, M ORNING NEW SPAPERS,
TRE ASU RY D EPARTM EN T
Friday, July 25, 1947.
Washington
The Secretary of the Treasury, by this public notice, invites tenders for $1,100,000,000, or thereabouts, of 91-day Treasury
bills, for cash and in exchange for Treasury bills maturing July 31, 1947, to be issued on a discount basis under competitive
and non-competitive bidding as hereinafter provided. The bills- of this series will be dated July 31, 1947, and will mature Octo­
ber 30, 1947, when the face amount will be payable without interest. They will be issued in bearer form only, and in denomitions of $1,000, $5,000, $10,000, $100,000, $500,000, and $1,000,000 (maturity value).
Tenders will be received at Federal Reserve Banks and Branches up to the closing hour, two o’clock p.m., Eastern
Daylight Saving time, Monday, July 28, 1947. Tenders will not be received at the Treasury Department, Washington. Each
tender must be for an even multiple of $1,000, and in the case of competitive tenders the price offered must be expressed on
the basis of 100, with not more than three decimals, e. g., 99.925. Fractions may not be used. It is urged that tenders be
made on the printed forms and forwarded in the special envelopes which will be supplied by Federal Reserve Banks or
Branches on application therefor.
Tenders will be received without deposit from incorporated banks and trust companies and from responsible and
recognized dealers in investment securities. Tenders from others must be accompanied by payment of 2 percent of the
face amount of Treasury bills applied for, unless the tenders are accompanied by an express guaranty of payment by an
incorporated bank or trust company.
Immediately after the closing hour, tenders will be opened at the Federal Reserve Banks and Branches, following which
public announcement will be made by the Secretary of the Treasury of the amount and price range of accepted bids. Those
submitting tenders will be advised of the acceptance or rejection thereof. The Secretary of the Treasury expressly reserves
the right to accept or reject any or all tenders, in whole or in part, and his action in any such respect shall be final. Subject
to these reservations, non-competitive tenders for $200,000 or less without stated price from any one bidder will be accepted
in full at the average price (in three decimals) of accepted competitive bids. Settlement for accepted tenders in accordance
with the bids must be made or completed at the Federal Reserve Bank on July 31, 1947, in cash or other immediately available
funds or in a like face amount of Treasury bills maturing July 31, 1947. Cash and exchange tenders will receive equal treat­
ment. Cash adjustments will be made for differences between the par value of maturing bills accepted in exchange and the
issue price of the new bills.
The income derived from Treasury bills, whether interest or gain from the sale or other disposition of the bills, shall
not have any exemption, as such, and loss from the sale or other disposition of Treasury bills shall not have any special
treatment, as such, under the Internal Revenue Code, or laws amendatory or supplementary thereto. The bills shall be
subject to estate, inheritance, gift or other excise taxes, whether Federal or State, but shall be exempt from all taxation
now or hereafter imposed on the principal or interest thereof by any State, or any of the possessions of the United States,
or by any local taxing authority. For purposes of taxation the amount of discount at which Treasury bills are originally
sold by the United States shall be considered to be interest. Under Sections 42 and 117 (a)(1 ) of the Internal Revenue
Code, as amended by Section 115 of the Revenue Act of 1941, the amount of discount at which bills issued hereunder are
sold shall not be considered to accrue until such bills shall be sold, redeemed or otherwise disposed of, and such bills are
excluded from consideration as capital assets. Accordingly, the owner of Treasury bills (other than life insurance com­
panies) issued hereunder need include in his income tax return only the difference between the price paid for such bills,
whether on original issue or on subsequent purchase, and the amount actually received either upon sale or redemption at
maturity during the taxable year for which the return is made, as ordinary gain or loss.
Treasury Department Circular No. 418, as amended, and this notice, prescribe the terms of the Treasury bills and
govern the conditions of their issue. Copies of the circular may be obtained from any Federal Reserve Bank or Branch.
In accordance with the above announcement tenders will be received at the Securities Department of this bank
(9th floor, 33 Liberty Street) New York 45, N. Y ., or at the Buffalo Branch of this bank (270 Main Street) Buffalo 5,
N . Y ., up to two o’clock p.m ., Eastern Daylight Saving time, on Monday, July 28, 1947. It is requested that tenders
be submitted on special form printed on reverse side and returned in special envelope enclosed herewith. Payment for
the Treasury hills cannot be made by credit through the W ar Loan Deposit Account. Settlement must be made in
cash or other immediately available funds or in maturing Treasury bills.

PAYMENT OF ARMED FORCES LEAVE BONDS

To Incorporated Banks and Trust Companies and Other Fitiancial Institutions
in the Second Federal Reserve District Qualified to Make Payments in
Connection with the Redemption of United States Savings Bonds:

At the request of the Treasury Department, we transmit to you the following
communication:
July 28, 1947
To the Savings Bond Paying A gent Addressed:
A s you know the President has signed the legislation which makes Armed Forces Leave
Bonds payable on demand beginning September 2, 1947.
The Treasury is in the process of completing its circulars and instructions governing
such payments. W ithin the next few days they will be forwarded to the Federal Reserve
Banks for printing and distribution to all qualified paying agents of savings bonds.
Accordingly you should receive the complete details within a very short time. The procedure
and instructions conform substantially to those prescribed for the payment of savings bonds.
Qualification as a paying agent of the bonds will be possible for those institutions simply
by the act of paying an Armed Forces Leave Bond after September 1.
Until you receive your instructions from the Federal Reserve Bank please do not make
any public statement regarding the matter. You may respond to any specific inquiry to the
general effect that you understand the Treasury will permit the bonds to be cashed in much
the same manner that savings bonds are cashed and that your institution (if such is your
desire) will cooperate.
I have asked the Federal Reserve Bank of New York to print and forward this message
to you so that you will know the current status of the matter. I sincerely hope that you will
place your institution at the service of those owners of Arm ed Forces Leave Bonds who
may desire to cash their bonds.
(Signed)

JO H N W . SN YD E R
Secretary of the Treasury.

Copies of the Treasury Department circulars and instructions with respect to the
procedure to be followed in making payment of Armed Forces Leave Bonds will be
sent to you as soon as they are available. Additional copies of this letter will be
furnished upon request.
