Cash adjustm ents w ill be m ade for differences betw een the par value of maturing bills accepted in exchange and the issue price of the new bills. T h e incom e derived from Treasury bills, whether interest or gain from the sale or other disposition of the bills, does not have any exem ption, as such, and loss from the sale or other disposition o f Treasury bills does not have any special treatm ent, as such, under the Internal R evenue 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 im posed 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 o f discount at which Treasury bills are originally sold by the U nited States is considered to be interest. Under Sections 4 54 ( b ) and 1221 ( 5 ) of the Internal R evenue Code of 1954 the am ount of discount at which bills issued hereunder are sold is not considered 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 Treasury bills (other than life insurance com panies) issued hereunder need include in his incom e tax return only the difference betw een the price paid for such bills, whether on original issue or on subsequent purchase, and the am ount actually received either upon sale or redem ption at m aturity during the taxable year for which the return is made, as ordinary gain or loss. Treasury Departm ent Circular No. 418 (current revision) and this notice, prescribe the term s of the Treasury bills and govern the conditions of their issue. Copies of the circular m ay be obtained from any Federal R eserve Bank or Branch.
