Accordingly, the owner of T reasury bills (other th an 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 th e taxable year for which the re tu rn is made, as ordinary gain or loss.
