Tenders will be received a t Federal Reserve Banks and Branches up to the closing hour, one-thirty p.m., Eastern
D aylight Saving Tim e, Monday, August 26, 1968. Tenders will not be received at the T reasury D epartm ent, Washington. Each
tender must be for an even multiple of $1,000, and in the case of com petitive tenders the price offered m ust be expressed on
the basis of 100, with not more than three decimals, e.g., 99.925. Fractions m ay not be used. It is urged th a t tenders be made
on the printed forms and forwarded in the special envelopes which will be supplied by Federal Reserve B anks or Branches
on application therefor.
Banking institutions generally may subm it tenders for account of customers provided the names of the customers are
set forth in such tenders. Others than banking institutions will not be perm itted to subm it tenders except for their own account.
Tenders will be received without deposit from incorporated banks and trust companies and from responsible and recognized
dealers in investm ent securities. Tenders from others must be accompanied by paym ent of 2 percent of th e face am ount of
T reasury bills applied for, unless the tenders are accompanied by an express guaranty of paym ent by an incorporated bank or
tru st company.
Im m ediately after the closing hour, tenders will be opened a t the Federal Reserve B anks and Branches, following which
public announcem ent will be made by the T reasury D epartm ent of the am ount and price range of accepted bids. Those
subm itting tenders will be advised of th e acceptance or rejection thereof. T he Secretary of 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. Subject to
these reservations, noncompetitive tenders for each issue for $200,000 or less w ithout stated price from any one bidder will be
a c c e p t e d in full a t t h e average price (in three decimals) of accepted competitive bids for the respective issues. Settlem ent for
accepted tenders in accordance with the bids m ust be m ade or com pleted a t th e Federal Reserve B ank on August 29, 1968, in
cash or other im m ediately available funds or in a like face am ount of T reasury bills m aturing August 29, 1968. Cash and
exchange tenders will receive equal treatm ent. Cash adjustm ents will be m ade for differences between th e p ar value of m atur­
ing bills accepted in exchange and th e issue price of the new bills.
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 h e bills are subject to estate, inheritance, gift or other excise taxes, whether
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 the United States, or by an y local taxing authority. For purposes of taxation the am ount of discount
at 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 th e 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, whether on original issue or on subsequent
purchase, and the am ount actually received either upon sale or redem ption a t m aturity during th e taxable year for which the
return is made, as ordinary gain or loss.
Treasury D epartm ent Circular No. 418 (current revision) and this notice, prescribe the terms of the T reasury bills and
govern the conditions of their issue. Copies of the circular m ay be obtained from any Federal Reserve Bank or Branch.
