those subm itting com petitive tenders will be advised of the acceptance or rejection thereof. T h e 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

one bidder will be accepted in full at the average price (in three decim als) of accepted com petitive bids for the respective

Under Sections 454 ( b ) and 1221 ( 5 ) of the Internal R evenue Code of 1954 the am ount o f discount a t which bills
issued hereunder are sold is considered to
accrue when th e 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 incom e 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 am ount 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 term s 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.
