T h e incom e derived from Treasury bills, whether interest or gain from the sale or other disposition of the bills, does not

as such, under the Internal R evenue Code o f 1954. T h e 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 im posed on the principal or interest thereof by any State,
or any of the possessions of the U n ited 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 S tates is considered to be interest. Under Sections 4 5 4 ( 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 otherw ise disposed of, and such bills are excluded from consideration as capital
assets. Accordingly, the owner o f Treasury bills (other than life insurance com panies) issued hereunder need include in his
incom e tax return only th e 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 th e taxable year for w hich th e return is
m ade, as ordinary gain or loss.
