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 w ithout deposit from incorporated banks and trust companies and from responsible and recognized
dealers in investm ent securities. Tenders from others m ust be accompanied by paym ent of 2 percent of th e face am ount of

tru st company.
Im m ediately after th e closing hour, tenders will be opened a t the Federal R eserve B anks and Branches, following which
public announcem ent will be made by the T reasury 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 the T reasury expressly reserves the
rig h t 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 the respective issues. Settlem ent for
accepted tenders in accordance with the bids m ust be made or completed a t the Federal Reserve B ank on April 24, 1969,
in cash or other im mediately available funds or in a like face am ount of T reasury bills m aturing April 24, 1969. Cash and
exchange tenders will receive equal treatm ent. Cash adjustm ents will be m ade for differences between the par 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 the bills, does not
have any exemption, as such, and loss from the sale or other disposition of T reasury 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
F ederal 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. F or 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 in terest U nder Section 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 than 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 the taxable year for which the
return is made, as ordinary gain or loss.
T reasury D epartm ent Circular No. 418 (curren t revision) and this notice, prescribe th e 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 B ank or Branch.
