Those subm itting tenders will be advised of the acceptance or rejection thereof. T he Secretary of 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, 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.

Cash adjustm ents will be made for differences between the p ar value of m atur ing bills accepted in exchange and the issue price of the new bills. T h e income derived from T reasury bills, w hether interest or gain from th e sale or other disposition of the bills, does not have any exemption, 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 Revenue Code of 1954. T he 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 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 at which Treasury bills are originally sold by th e U nited States is considered to be in terest U nder Section 454 (b ) and 1221 (5 ) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 th e 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 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 return is made, as ordinary gain or loss. T reasury D epartm ent Circular No. 418 (cu rrent revision) and this notice, prescribe th e term s of the T reasury bills and govern th e conditions of their issue.
