T h e income derived from T reasury bills, w hether interest or gain from the sale or other disposition of the 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, b u t are exempt 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. For purposes of taxation th e am ount of discount a t which Treasury bills are originally sold by the United 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 at which bills issued hereunder are sold is not con sidered to accrue until such bills are sold, redeemed 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 the am ount actually received either upon sale or redem ption a t m aturity during the taxable year for which th e 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 the T reasury bills and govern the conditions of their issue. Copies of the circular may be obtained from any Federal R eserve B ank or Branch.
