FOR RELEASE, MORNING
Friday, February 12, 1943.

NEWSPAPERS,

TREASURY DEPARTMENT
Washington

The Secretary of the Treasury, by this public notice, invites tenders for $700,000,000, or thereabouts, of
91-day Treasury bills, to be issued on a discount basis under competitive bidding. The bills of this series
will be dated February 17, 1943, and will mature May 19, 1943, 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 war time, Monday, February 15, 1943. Tenders will not be received at the Treasury Department, Washington. Each tender must be for an even multiple of $1,000, and 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. Payment of accepted tenders at the prices offered
must be made or completed at the Federal Reserve Bank in cash or other immediately available funds on
February 17, 1943.
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 Federal tax Acts now or hereafter enacted. 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 companies) 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 City) or at the Buffalo Branch of this bank (272 Main
Street, Buffalo, New York) up to two o'clock p.m., Eastern war time, on Monday, February 15, 1943.
It is requested that tenders be submitted on special form printed on reverse side and returned in special
envelope enclosed herewith.
Attention is invited to the fact that payment for the Treasury bills cannot be made by credit through the
War Loan Deposit Account. Payment must be made in cash or other immediately available funds.




ALLAN

SPROUL,

President.
