public announcem ent will be made by the T reasury D epartm ent of the am ount and price range of accepted bids. Those

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 without stated price from any one bidder will be

T he income derived from Treasury 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, whether
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 the 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 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 com panies) 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 the
return is made, as ordinary gain or loss.
T reasury D epartm ent Circular No. 418 (current revision) and this notice, prescribe th e terms of the T reasury bills and
govern th e conditions of their issue. Copies of the circular may be obtained from any Federal Reserve B ank or Branch.

value).
2. Tenders should be forwarded in an envelope clearly addressed to this bank or appropriate branch as Fiscal Agent of the
United States, with notation on the envelope reading “TENDER FOR TREASURY BILLS”. Since envelopes received
with this legend will not be opened until after the closing time specified in the public announcement, communications
relating to other matters should not be enclosed. Envelopes for submitting tenders may be obtained from this bank
or appropriate branch.
3. Any qualified or conditional tender will be rejected.
4. If a corporation makes the tender, the form should be signed by an officer of the corporation authorized to make the
tender and the signing of the form by an officer of the corporation will be construed as a representation by him that he
has been so authorized. If the tender is made by a partnership it should be signed by a member of the firm, who
should sign in the form “........................................................ , a copartnership, by .................................................................................,
a member of the firm”.

of the Treasury bills applied for, or unless the tenders are accompanied by an express guaranty of full payment by an
incorporated bank or trust company.
6. If the language of this form is changed in any respect, which, in the opinion of the Secretary of the Treasury is
material, the tender may be disregarded.
