Under Sections 454 ( 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 considered to accrue when the bills are sold, redeem ed or otherwise disposed of, and the bills are
excluded from consideration as capital assets. Accordingly, the owner of Treasury bills (other than life insurance com panies)
issued hereunder m ust include in his income tax return, as ordinary gain or loss, the difference betw een the price paid for the
bills, whether on original issue or on subsequent purchase, and the amount actually received either upon sale or redem ption at
maturity during the taxable year for which the return is made.
Treasury D epartm ent Circular No. 418 (current revision) and this notice, prescribe the terms 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.
