hereunder are sold is considered to accrue when the bills are sold, redeem ed or otherwise disposed of, and the bills are excluded

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 a t m aturity during
the taxable year for which the return is made.

govern the conditions of their issue. Copies o f th e circular m ay be obtained from any Federal R eserve Bank or 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

material, the tender may be disregarded.
