For purposes of taxation the am ount of discount a t which T reasury bills are originally sold by th e U nited States is considered to be in te re s t 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, th e owner of Treasury bills (other th a n life insurance com panies) issued hereunder need include in his income tax retu rn only the difference between the 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 the taxable year for which the return is made, as ordinary gain or loss.
