Federal or State, b u 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. F o r purposes of taxation th e 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 th e Internal Revenue Code of 1954 th e am ount of discount a t which bills issued hereunder are sold is n o t 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 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 the taxable year for which the
return is made, as ordinary gain or loss.
T reasury D epartm ent Circular No. 418 (current revision) and this notice, prescribe the term s of th e 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.
