Fractions m ay not be used. I t 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 Banks or Branches on application therefor. Banking institutions generally m ay 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 T enders will be received without deposit from incorporated banks and trust companies and from responsible and recognized dealers in investm ent securities. Tenders from other* m ust be accompanied by paym ent of 2 percent of the 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 Treasury D epartm ent of th e am ount and price range of accepted bids. Those subm itting tenders will be advised of the acceptance or rejection thereof. T he Secretary of th e 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 without stated price from any one bidder will be accepted in full a t the average price (in three decimals) of accepted competitive bids for th e respective issues. Settlem ent for accepted tenders in accordance with the bids m ust be made or completed a t the Federal R eserve B ank on M arch 27, 1969, in cash or other im m ediately available funds or in a like face am ount of Treasury bills m aturing M arch 27, 1969. Cash and exchange tenders will receive equal treatm ent. Cash adjustm ents will be m ade for differences between the p ar value of m atur ing bills accepted in exchange and the issue price of th e new bills. T he income derived from Treasury bills, w hether interest or gain from the sale or other disposition of th e 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 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 in terest 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, the owner of T reasury bills (other th a n life insurance companies) 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 th e taxable year for which the retu rn is made, as ordinary gain or loss. Treasury D epartm ent Circular No. 418 (cu rrent revision) and this notice, prescribe the term s of the T reasury bills and govern the conditions of their issue. Copies of the circular may be obtained from any Federal Reserve B ank or Branch.
