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 may 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.

Those subm itting tenders will be advised of th e acceptance or rejection thereof. T he Secretary of the Treasury expressly reserves the rig ht 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 th e average price (in three decimals) of accepted competitive bids for the respective issues.

Cash adjustm ents will be m ade for differences between the p a r value of m atur ing bills accepted in exchange and the issue price of the new bills. T he income derived from T reasury bills, w hether interest or gain from th e 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 h e 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 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. 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, redeemed or otherwise disposed of, and such bills are excluded from consideration as c a p i t a l 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, 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 the conditions of their issue. Copies of the circular may be obtained from any Federal Reserve B ank or Branch.
