T he income derived from Treasury bills, w hether interest or gain from the sale or other disposition of the bills, does not

Federal or State, b u t are exem pt from all taxation now or hereafter imposed on th e 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 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 the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 the am ount of discount a t which bills issued hereunder are sold is not con
sidered to accrue until such bills are sold, redem med or otherwise disposed of, and such bills are excluded from consideration as
capital assets. Accordingly, the owner of T reasury 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, 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 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 term s of the T reasury bills and
govern the conditions of their issue. Copies of th e circular may be obtained from any Federal Reserve B ank or Branch.
