rig ht to accept or reject any or all tenders, in whole or in p art, and his action in any such respect shall be final. S ubject 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 th e average price (in th ree decim als) of accepted com petitive bids for th e respective issues. S ettlem ent for

T h e incom e derived from T reasury bills, w hether in terest or gain from th e 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 Intern al R evenue Code of 1954. T h e bills are subject to estate, inheritance, gift or other excise taxes, w hether
F ederal or S tate, b u t are exem pt from all taxation now or hereafter im posed on th e principal or in terest thereof by any State,
or any of th e possessions of th e U nited States, or by any local taxing authority. F or purposes of taxation th e am ount of discount
a t which T reasury bills are originally sold by th e U nited S tates is considered to be interest. U nder Sections 454 (b ) and 1221 (5 )
of th e In tern al R evenue Code of 1954 th e am ount of discount a t which bills issued hereunder are sold is n o t considered to
accrue u ntil such bills are sold, redeem ed or otherw ise disposed of, and such bills are excluded from consideration as capital
assets. Accordingly, th e owner of T reasury bills (o th er th an life insurance com panies) issued hereunder need include in his
income tax retu rn only th e difference betw een 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 atu rity during th e taxable year for which th e retu rn is
made, as ordinary gain or loss.
T reasury D ep artm en t C ircular No. 418 (cu rren t revision) and th is notice, prescribe th e term s of th e T reasury bills and
govern th e conditions of th eir issue. Copies of th e circular m ay be obtained from any F ederal R eserve B ank or B ranch.
