Im m ediately after the closing hour, tenders w ill 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. T hose
submitting tenders w ill be advised of the acceptance or rejection thereof. T h e 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

now or hereafter imposed on the principal or interest thereof by any State, or any of the possessions of the United States,

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 c t 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.
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
m aturity during the taxable year fo r which the return is made, as ordinary gain or loss.
