these reservations, noncom petitive tenders for each issue for $200,000 or less without stated price from any one bidder will be

accepted tenders in accordance with th e bids m ust be m ade or completed a t the Federal Reserve B ank on Janu ary 30, 1969,

T he 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 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, b u t are exem pt from all taxation now or hereafter imposed on the principal or interest thereof by any State,
or an y of the possessions of th e 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, redeem ed or otherwise disposed of, and such bills are excluded from consideration as
capital assets. Accordingly, th e 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 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 the
retu rn is made, as ordinary gain or loss.
Treasury D epartm ent Circular No. 418 (curren t revision) and this notice, prescribe the term s of th e T reasury bills and
govern the conditions of their issue. Copies of the circular may be obtained from any Federal Reserve Bank or Branch.
