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.

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.
