Banking institutions generally m ay subm it tenders for account o f customers provided the names o f the customers are

subm itting tenders will be advised o f the acceptance or rejection thereof. T h e Secretary o f the Treasury 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. Su bject to
these reservations, noncom petitive tenders for each issue for $200,000 or less w ithout stated price from any one bidder w ill be

T h e incom e derived from Treasury bills, whether interest or gain from the sale or other disposition o f the bills, does not
have any exem ption, as such, and loss from the sale or other disposition o f Treasury bills does not have any special treatment,
as such, under the Internal R evenue C ode o f 1954. T h e bills are subject to estate, inheritance, gift or other excise taxes, whether
Federal or State, but are exem pt from all taxation now or hereafter im posed on the principal or interest thereof by any State,
or any o f the possessions o f the United States, or by any local taxing authority. For purposes o f taxation the amount o f discount
at which Treasury bills are originally sold b y the United States is considered to be interest. U nder Sections 454 ( b ) and
1221 ( 5 ) o f the Internal R evenue Code o f 1954 the amount o f discount at 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. A ccordingly, the owner o f Treasury bills (other than life insurance com panies) issued hereunder need include
in his incom e tax return on ly the difference betw een the price paid for such bills, whether on original issue or on subsequent
purchase, and the am ount actually received either upon sale or redem ption at m aturity during the taxable year for which the
return is made, as ordinary gain or loss.
Treasury D epartm ent Circular N o. 418 (current revision) and this notice, prescribe the terms o f the Treasury bills and
govern the conditions o f their issue. Copies o f the circular m ay be obtained from any Federal R eserve Bank or Branch.
