U nder Sections 454 (b ) and 1221 (5 ) of th e Internal R evenue Code of 1954 the am ount of discount a t which bills issued
hereunder are sold is considered to accrue when the bills are sold, redeem ed or otherwise disposed of, and the bills are excluded
from consideration as capital assets. Accordingly, the owner of T reasury bills (other than life insurance com panies) issued here­
under m ust include in his income tax return, as ordinary gain or loss, the difference between the price paid for the bills, w hether on
original issue or on subsequent purchase, and the am ount actually received either upon sale or redem ption a t m aturity during the
taxable year for which the retu rn is made.
