TREASURY DEPARTM ENT
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 May 27, 1948, to be issued on a discount basis under competi­
tive and non-competitive bidding as hereinafter provided. The bills of this series will be dated May 27, 1948, and will
mature August 26, 1948, when the face amount will be payable without interest. They will be issued in bearer form only, and
in denominations 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, May 24, 1948. 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 May 27, 1948, in cash or other immediatel}available funds or in a like face amount of Treasury bills maturing May 27, 1948. Cash and exchange tenders will receive
equal treatment. 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, May 24, 1948. 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 bills cannot be made by credit through the War Loan Deposit Account. Settlement must be made in cash or
other immediately available funds or in maturing Treasury bills.
A l l a n S p r o u l , President.
