TREASURY DEPARTMENT
Washington

T h e Secretary of the Treasury, by this public notice, invites tenders for $1,300,000,000, or thereabouts, of 91-day Treasury
bills, to be issued on a discount basis under competitive and fixed-price bidding as hereinafter provided. T h e bills of this
series will be dated January 25, 1945, and will mature April 26, 1945, when the face amount will be payable without interest.
T h e y will be issued in bearer f o r m 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, t w o o'clock p.m., Eastern
war time, Monday, January 22, 1945. 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 b y Federal Reserve Banks or Branches on application therefor.
Tenders will be received without deposit from incorporated banks and trust companies and f r o m responsible and
recognized dealers in investment securities. Tenders f r o m others must be accompanied b y payment of 2 percent of the
face amount *of Treasury bills applied for, unless the tenders are accompanied b y an express guaranty of payment b y an
incorporated bank o r 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. 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
to these reservations, tenders for $200,000 or less from any one bidder at 99.905 entered on a fixed-price basis will be accepted
in full. 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 January 25, 1945.
T h e income derived from Treasury bills, whether interest o r gain from the sale o r other disposition of the bills, shall
not have any exemption, as such, and loss f r o m the sale o r other disposition of Treasury bills shall not have any special
treatment, as such, under Federal tax Acts n o w or hereafter enacted. T h e bills shall be subject to estate, inheritance, gift,
or other excise taxes, whether Federal o r State, but shall be exempt from all taxation n o w o r hereafter imposed o n the
principal or interest thereof b y any State, o r any of the possessions of the United States, o r by any local taxing authority.
F o r purposes of taxation the amount of discount at which Treasury bills are originally sold b y the United States shall b e
considered to be interest. Under Sections 42 and 117 ( a ) ( 1 ) of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended b y 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 o r otherwise disposed of, and such bills are excluded f r o m 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 f o r such bills, whether on original issue or on subsequent
purchase, and the amount actually received either upon sale o r redemption at maturity during the taxable year for which
the return is made, as ordinary gain o r loss.
Treasury Department Circular N o . 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 f r o m any Federal Reserve Bank o r Branch.
