Tenders w ill be received without deposit from incorporated banks and trust companies and from responsible and

Im m ediately after the closing hour, tenders will be opened at the Federal Reserve Banks and Branches, follow ing which
public announcement w ill be made by the Secretary of the Treasury of the amount and price range of accepted bids. Those
submitting tenders w ill be advised of the acceptance or rejection thereof. T he Secretary of the Treasury expressly reserves

or by any local taxing authority. F or purposes of taxation the am ount 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 A ct of 1941, the am ount of discount at which bills issued hereunder arc
sold shall not be considered to accrue until such bills shall be sold, redeemed or otherwise disposed o f, and such bills are
excluded from consideration as capital assets.
A ccordingly, the owner of T reasury 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.
T reasury Department Circular N o . 418, as amended, and this notice, prescribe the terms of the Treasury bills
govern the conditions of their issue. Copies of the circular m ay be obtained from any Federal Reserve Bank or Branch.
