Fractions may not be used. I t is urged th a t tenders be made on the printed forms and forwarded in the special envelopes which will be supplied by F ederal Reserve B anks or Branches on application therefor. Banking institutions generally may subm it tenders for account of customers provided the nam es of th e customers are set forth in such tenders.

Those subm itting tenders will be advised of the acceptance or rejection thereof. T he Secretary of the T reasury 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, noncom petitive tenders for each issue for $200,000 or less w ithout stated price from any one bidder will be accepted in full at the average price (in three decimals) of accepted com petitive bids for the respective issues. S ettlem ent for accepted tenders in accordance with the bids m ust be m ade or completed a t the Federal Reserve B ank on August 17, 1967, in cash or other im m ediately available funds or in a like face am ount of T reasury bills m aturing August 17, 1967. Cash and exchange tenders will receive equal treatm ent. Cash adjustm ents will be m ade for differences between the par value of m atur ing bills accepted in exchange and the issue price of the new bills. T he income derived from T reasury bills, w hether interest or gain from th e 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 treatm ent, as such, under the Internal Revenue Code of 1954. T he bills are subject to estate, inheritance, gift or other excise taxes, w hether Federal or State, bu t are exem pt from all taxation now or hereafter imposed on the principal or interest thereof by any State, or any of the possessions of the U nited States, or by any local taxing authority. For purposes of taxation the am ount of discount at which T reasury bills are originally sold by the U nited States is considered to be interest. U nder Sections 454 (b ) and 1221 (5 ) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 the am ount of discount at which bills issued hereunder are sold is not con sidered to accrue until such bills are sold, redeem ed or otherwise disposed of, and such bills are excluded from consideration as capital assets. Accordingly, the owner of T reasury bills (other than life insurance com panies) 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 am ount actually received either upon sale or redem ption at m aturity during the taxable year for which the return is made, as ordinary gain or loss. Treasury D epartm ent Circular No. 418 (cu rrent revision) and this notice, prescribe th e term s of the T reasury bills and govern the conditions of their issue. Copies of the circular may be obtained from any F ederal Reserve B ank or Branch.
