Circular No. 67-102
May 17, 1967


To All Banking Institutions and Others Concerned
in the Eleventh Federal Reserve District:

Your attention is invited to the following statement giving details of two issues of Treasury bills:
The Treasury Department, by this public notice, invites tenders for two series of Treasury bills to the aggregate amount
of $1,400,000,000, or thereabouts, for cash and in exchange for Treasury bills maturing May 31, 1967, in the amount of
$1,401,990,000, as follows:
274-DAY BILLS (to m aturity date) to be issued May 31, 1967, in the amount of $500,000,000, or there­
abouts, representing an additional amount of bills dated February 28, 1967, and to mature February 29, 1968,
originally issued in the amount of $901,029,000, the additional and original bills to be freely interchangeable.
366-DAY BILLS for $900,000,000, or thereabouts, to be dated May 31, 1967, and to mature May 31, 1968.
The bills of both series will be issued on a discount basis under competitive and noncompetitive bidding as hereinafter
provided, and at m aturity their face amount will be payable without interest. They will be issued in bearer form only, and in
denominations of $1,000, $5,000, $10,000, $50,000, $100,000, $500,000 and $1,000,000 (m aturity value).
Tenders will be received at Federal Reserve Banks and Branches up to the closing hour, one-thirty p.m., Eastern
Daylight Saving Time, Wednesday, May 24, 1967. Tenders will not be received at the Treasury Department, Washington.
Each tender must be for an even multiple of $1,000, and in the case of competitive tenders 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. (Notwithstanding the fact that
the one-year bills will run for 366-days, the discount rate will be computed on a bank discount basis of 360-days, as is currently
the practice on all issues of Treasury bills.) I t is urged th at tenders be made on the printed forms and forwarded in the special
envelopes which will be supplied by Federal Reserve Banks or Branches on application therefor.
Banking institutions generally may submit tenders for account of customers provided the names of the customers are
set forth in such tenders. Others than banking institutions will not be permitted to submit tenders except for their own account.
Tenders will be received without deposit from incorporated banks and trust companies and from responsible and recognized
dealers in investment securities. Tenders from others must be accompanied by payment of 2 percent of the face amount of
Treasury bills applied for, unless the tenders are accompanied by an express guaranty of payment by an incorporated bank or
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 Treasury Departm ent of the amount and price range of accepted bids. Those
submitting tenders will be advised of the acceptance or rejection thereof. The 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, noncompetitive tenders for each issue for $200,000 or less without stated price from any one bidder will be
accepted in full at the average price (in three decimals) of accepted competitive bids for the respective issues. Settlem ent for
accepted tenders in accordance with the bids must be made or completed at the Federal Reserve Bank on May 31, 1967, in
cash or other immediately available funds or in a like face amount of Treasury bills maturing May 31, 1967. Cash and
exchange tenders will receive equal treatm ent. Cash adjustments will be made for differences between the par value of maturing
bills accepted in exchange and the issue price of the new bills.
The income derived from Treasury bills, whether interest or gain from the sale or other disposition of the bills, does not
have any exemption, as such, and loss from the sale or other disposition of Treasury bills does not have any special treatment,
as such, under the Internal Revenue Code of 1954. T he bills are subject to estate, inheritance, gift or other excise taxes, whether
Federal or State, but are exempt from all taxation now or hereafter imposed on the principal or interest thereof by any State,
or any of the possessions of the United States, or by any local taxing authority. For purposes of taxation the amount of discount
a t which Treasury bills are originally sold by the United States is considered to be interest. Under Sections 454 (b ) and 1221 (5)
of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 the amount of discount at which bills issued hereunder are sold is not considered to
accrue until such bills are sold, redeemed or otherwise disposed of, and such bills are excluded from 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 for such bills, whether on original issue or on subsequent purchase,
and the amount actually received either upon sale or redemption at m aturity during the taxable year for which the return is
made, as ordinary gain or loss.
Treasury Department Circular No. 418 (current revision) and this notice, prescribe the terms of the Treasury bills and
govern the conditions of their issue. Copies of the circular may be obtained from any Federal Reserve Bank or Branch.

In accordance with the a b o v e announcement, tenders will b e received at this bank and its branches at El Paso,
Houston and San Antonio, up to twelve-thirty p.m., Central Daylight Saving Time, W ednesday, May 24, 1967. Tenders
may not be entered by telephone.
Yours very truly,
Watrous H. Irons
