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

F ed eral or State, b u t are exem pt from all taxation now or hereafter imposed on th e principal or interest thereof by any State,
or any of the possessions of the U nited States, or b y any local taxing authority. F o r purposes of taxation the am ount of discount
a t 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 a t 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 th an life insurance companies) issued hereunder need include
in his income tax return only the difference between th e price paid for such 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 th e taxable year for which the
return is made, as ordinary gain or loss.

govern the conditions of th eir issue. Copies of th e circular m ay be obtained from any Federal Reserve B ank or Branch.
