the basis o f 100, with not m ore than three decimals, e.g., 99.925. Fractions may not be used. It is urged that tenders be
made on the printed form s and forwarded in the special envelopes which will be supplied by Federal Reserve Banks or
Branches on application therefor.
Others than banking institutions will not be permitted to submit tenders except for their own account. Tenders w ill be
received without deposit from incorporated banks and trust companies and from responsible and recognized dealers in invest­
ment securities. Tenders from others must be accompanied by payment o f 2 percent o f the face amount o f Treasury bills
applied for, unless the tenders are accom panied by an express guaranty o f payment by an incorporated bank or trust company.
Immediately 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 Treasury Department o f the amount and price range o f accepted bids. Those
submitting tenders will be advised o f the acceptance or rejection thereof. T h e Secretary o f 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-com petitive tenders for $200,000 or less without stated price from any one bidder w ill be accepted
in full at the average price (in three decim als) o f accepted competitive bids. Settlement for accepted tenders in accordance
with the bids must be made or com pleted at the Federal Reserve Bank on August 20, 1953, in cash or other immediately avail­
able funds or in a like face amount o f Treasury bills maturing August 20,1953. Cash and exchange tenders w ill receive equal
treatment. Cash adjustments will be made for differences between the par value o f maturing bills accepted in exchange and
the issue price o f the new bills.
T h e income derived from Treasury bills, whether interest or gain from the sale or other disposition o f the bills, shall not
have any exemption, as such, and loss from the sale or other disposition o f Treasury bills shall not have any special treat­
ment, as such, under the Internal Revenue Code, or laws amendatory o r supplementary thereto. The bills_shall be subject
to.estate, inheritance, gift, or other excise taxes, whether Federal o r State, but shall be exempt from all taxation now or here­
after imposed on the principal or interest thereof by any State, or any o f the possessions o f the United States, or by any local
taxing authority. F or purposes o f taxation the amount o f discount at which Treasury bills are originally sold by the United
States shall be considered to be interest. Under Sections 42 and 11 7(a )(1) o f the Internal Revenue Code, as amended by
Section 115 o f the Revenue A ct o f 1941, the amount o f 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 ow ner o f Treasury bills (other than life insurance com panies) issued hereunder need in­
clude in his income tax return only the difference between the price paid for such bills, whether on original issue or on sub­
sequent 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.
