Im m ediately after the closing hour, tenders will be opened a t th e Federal Reserve Banks and Branches, following which
public announcem ent will be m ade 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 h e Secretary of th e Treasury expressly reserves the

these reservations, noncompetitive tenders for each issue for $200,000 or less w ithout stated price from any one bidder will be

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 h e bills are subject to estate, inheritance, gift or other excise taxes, w hether
Federal or State, but are exempt 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 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 th a n life insurance com panies) issued hereunder need include
in his income tax return only the difference between th e 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
retu rn 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.
