T h e Secretary of the T reasury expressly reserves the right to accept or reject any or all tenders, in whole or in p art, and his action in any such respect shall be final. Subject to these reservations, noncom petitive tenders for each issue for $200,000 or less w ithout stated price from any one bidder will be accepted in full a t the average price (in three decim als) of accepted com petitive bids for the respective issues.

T he income derived from T reasury bills, w hether interest or gain from the sale or other disposition of th e bills, does not have any exem ption, as such, and loss from th e sale or other disposition of T reasury bills does not have any special treatm ent, as such, under th e Internal Revenue Code of 1954. T h e bills are subject to estate, inheritance, gift or other excise taxes, w hether Federal or State, b u t are exem pt from all taxation now or hereafter imposed on th e principal or interest thereof by any State, or any of the possessions of th e U nited States, or by any local taxing authority. F o r purposes of taxation th e am ount of discount a t which T reasury bills are originally sold by th e U nited States is considered to be interest. U nder Sections 454 (b ) and 1221 (5 ) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 th e am ount of discount a t which bills issued hereunder are sold is not considered to accrue until such bills are sold, redeem ed or otherwise disposed of, and such bills are excluded from consideration as capital assets. Accordingly, th e owner of T reasury bills (o th er than life insurance com panies) issued hereunder need include in his income tax retu rn only the difference between th e price paid for such bills, w hether on original issue or on subsequent purchase, and th e am ount actually received either upon sale or redem ption a t m aturity during the taxable year for which the return is made, as ordinary gain or loss.
