basis of 100, with not more than three decim als, e.g., 99.925. Fractions m ay not be used. (N otw ithstanding the fact th at the oneyear bills will run for 365-days, the discount rate w ill be com puted on a bank discount basis o f 360-days, as is currently the
practice on all issues of Treasury bills.) It is urged that tenders be m ade on the printed forms and forwarded in the special
envelopes which will be supplied by Federal R eserve B anks or Branches on application therefor.
Banking institutions generally m ay subm it tenders for account of custom ers provided the nam es o f the custom ers are

Tenders w ill be received without deposit from incorporated banks and trust com panies and from responsible and recognized

Im m ediately after the closing hour, tenders w ill be opened at the Federal R eserve Banks and Branches, follow ing which
public announcem ent will be m ade by the Treasury D epartm ent o f the am ount and price range of accepted bids. T hose
subm itting tenders will be advised of the acceptance or rejection thereof. T h e Secretary o f the 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, noncom petitive tenders for each issue for $200,000 or less w ithout stated price from any one bidder will be
accepted in full at the average price (in three decim als) of accepted com petitive bids for the respective issues. Settlem ent for
accepted tenders in accordance with the bids m ust be m ade or com pleted at the Federal R eserve B ank on April 30, 1969,

exchange tenders will receive equal trea tm en t Cash adjustm ents will 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 he 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 of 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 b y 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 n ited States is considered to be in te re st Under Sections 454 ( b ) and 1221 ( 5 )
of the Internal R evenue Code of 1954 the am ount of discount a t 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 D epartm ent Circular No. 4 18 (current revision) and this notice, prescribe the term s o f 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.
