T he Secretary of th e 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, noncompetitive 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.

T h e income derived from T reasury bills, w hether interest or gain from th e sale or other disposition of th e 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, 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 th e United States, or by any local taxing authority. F or purposes of taxation the am ount of discount a t which Treasury bills are originally sold by the U nited States is considered to be interest. Under 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 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, 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 th e retu rn is made, as ordinary gain or loss. Treasury D epartm ent Circular No. 418 (current revision) and this notice, prescribe th e term s of the T reasury bills and govern th e conditions of their issue. Copies of th e circular may be obtained from any Federal Reserve B ank or Branch.
