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 h e 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, noncom petitive tenders for each issue for $200,000 or less without stated price from any one bidder will be
accepted in full a t the average price (in three decimals) of accepted com petitive 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 the Federal Reserve B ank on Jan u ary 16, 1969,

ing bills accepted in exchange and the issue price of th e new bills.
T h e income derived from T reasury bills, w hether interest or gain from th e sale or other disposition of th e bills, does not
have any exemption, as such, and loss from th e 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, but are exem pt 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 U nited States is considered to be interest. Under Sections 454 (b ) and
1221 (5 ) of th e 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 th a n 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 the term s of the T reasury bills and
govern th e conditions of their issue. Copies of the circular m ay be obtained from any Federal R eserve Bank or Branch.

IM P O R T A N T

1. No tender for less than $1,000 will be considered and each tender must be for an amount in multiples of $1,000 (maturity
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 OFFERING.” Since envelopes re­
ceived with this legend will not be opened until after the closing time specified in the public announcement, communica­
tions 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 at 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.”
5. Tenders from those other than incorporated banks and trust companies or responsible and recognized dealers in invest­
ment securities will be disregarded, unless accompanied by a deposit of 2 percent of the total amount (maturity value)
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.
