To All Banking Institutions an d Others Concerned
in the Eleventh Federal Reserve District:

Your attention is invited to the fo llo w ing statem ent giving details of an issue of Treasury bills:

The Treasury Department, by this public notice, invites tenders for $2,500,000,000, or thereabouts, of 199-day Treasury
bills, to be issued on a discount basis under competitive and noncompetitive bidding as hereinafter provided. The bills of this
series will be dated December 5, 1972, and will mature June 22, 1973 (CUSIP No. 912793 R H 1). They will be accepted at
face value in payment of income taxes due on June 15, 1973, and to the extent they are not presented for this purpose the
face amount of these bills will be payable without interest at maturity. Taxpayers desiring to apply these bills in payment of
June 15, 1973, income taxes may submit the bills to a Federal Reserve Bank or Branch or to the Office of the Treasurer of
the United States, Washington, not more than fifteen days before that date. In the case of bills submitted in payment of income
taxes of a corporation they shall be accompanied by a duly completed Form 503 and the office receiving these items will effect the
deposit on June 15, 1973. In the case of bills submitted in payment of income taxes of all other taxpayers, the office receiving
the bills will issue receipts therefor, the original of which the taxpayer shall submit on or before June 15, 1973, to the District
Director of Internal Revenue for the District in which such taxes are payable. The bills will be issued in bearer form only, and
in denominations of $10,000, $15,000, $50,000, $100,000, $500,000 and $1,000,000 (m aturity value).
Tenders will be received at Federal Reserve Banks and Branches up to the closing hour, one-thirty p.m., Eastern
Standard Time, Wednesday, November 29, 1972. Tenders will not be received a t the Treasury Department, Washington. Each
tender must be for a minimum of $10,000. Tenders over $10,000 must be in multiples of $5,000. In the case of competitive
tenders the price offered must be expressed on the basis of 100, with not more than three decimals, e.g., 99.925. Fractions
may not be used. It is urged that tenders be made on the printed forms and forwarded in the special envelopes which will
be supplied by Federal Reserve Banks or Branches on application therefor.
Banking institutions generally may submit tenders for account of customers provided the names of the customers are
set forth in such tenders. Others than banking institutions will not be permitted to submit tenders except for their own account.
Tenders will be received without deposit from incorporated banks and trust companies and from responsible and recognized
dealers in investment securities. Tenders from others must be accompanied by payment of 2 percent of the face amount of
Treasury bills applied for, unless the tenders are accompanied by an express guaranty of payment by an incorporated bank or
trust company.
All bidders are required to agree not to purchase or to sell, or to make any agreements with respect to the purchase
or sale or other disposition of any bills of this issue a t a specific rate or price, until after one-thirty p.m., Eastern Standard
Time, Wednesday, November 29, 1972.
Immediately after the closing hour, tenders will be opened at the Federal Reserve Banks and Branches, following which
public announcement will be made by the Treasury Department of the amount and price range of accepted bids. Only those
submitting competitive tenders will be advised of the acceptance or rejection thereof. The 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 $400,000 or less without stated price from any one bidder will be
accepted in full at the average price (in three decimals) of accepted competitive bids. Settlement for accepted tenders in
accordance with the bids must be made or completed at the Federal Reserve Bank in cash or other immediately available
funds on December 5, 1972. Any qualified depositary will be permitted to make settlement by credit in its Treasury Tax and
Loan account for Treasury bills allotted to it for itself and its customers.
Under Sections 454 (b) and 1221 (5) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 the amount of discount at which bills issued
hereunder are sold is considered to accrue when the bills are sold, redeemed or otherwise disposed of, and the bills are excluded
from consideration as capital assets. Accordingly, the owner of Treasury bills (other than life insurance companies) issued here­
under must include in his income tax return, as ordinary gain or loss, the difference between the price paid for the bills, whether
on original issue or on subsequent purchase, and the amount actually received either upon sale or redemption at maturity during
the taxable year for which the return is made.
Treasury Department 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 may be obtained from any Federal Reserve Bank or Branch.
In accordance w ith the a b o v e announcem ent, tenders w ill be received a t this b ank a n d its branches a t El Paso,
Houston a n d San Antonio, up to tw elv e -th irty p.m., Central Standard Time, W ed n esd ay, N ovem ber 2 9, 1972. Tenders
