B anking institutions generally m ay subm it tenders for account of customers provided the nam es of the customers are

public announcem ent w ill be made by the Treasury D epartm ent of the am ount and price range of accepted bids. Only those
subm itting com petitive tenders w ill 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 final. Sub­
ject to these reservations, noncom petitive tenders for each issue for $200,000 or less without stated price from any one bidder w ill

bills accepted in exchange and the issue price of the new bills.
Under Sections 4 54 ( 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 here­
under 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 am ount actually received either upon sale or redem ption at m aturity during the
taxable year for which the return is made.
Treasury D epartm ent Circular No. 41 8 (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.

$5,000 (m aturity value).
2. Tenders should be forwarded in an envelope clearly addressed to this bank or appropriate branch as Fiscal Agent of the
United States, with notation on the envelope reading “TENDER FOR TREASURY OFFERING”. Since envelopes
received with this legend will not be opened until after the closing time specified in the public announcement, communi­
cations relating to other m atters should not be enclosed. Envelopes for submitting tenders may be obtained from this
bank or appropriate branch.
3. Any qualified or conditional tender will be rejected.
4. If a corporation makes the tender, the form should be signed by an officer of the corporation authorized to make the

incorporated bank or tru st company.
6. If the language of this form is changed in any respect, which, in the opinion of the Secretary of the Treasury is
m aterial, the tender may be disregarded.
