T he income derived from T reasury bills, w hether interest or gain from the sale or other disposition of the bills, does not have any exemption, as such, and loss from the sale or other disposition of T reasury bills does not have any special treatm ent, as such, under the Internal Revenue Code of 1954. T he bills are subject to estate, inheritance, gift or other excise taxes, w hether Federal or State, b u t are exem pt from all taxation now or hereafter imposed on the principal or interest thereof by any State, or any of the possessions of the U nited States, or by any local taxing authority. For purposes of taxation the am ount of discount a t which T reasury bills are originally sold by the U nited States is considered to be interest. U nder Sections 454 (b ) and 1221 (5 ) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 the am ount of discount a t which bills issued hereunder are sold is not con sidered to accrue until such bills are sold, redeem ed or otherwise disposed of, and such bills are excluded from consideration as capital assets. Accordingly, the owner of T reasury bills (other than life insurance com panies) issued hereunder need include in his income tax return only the difference between the price paid for such bills, w hether on original issue or on subsequent purchase, and th e am ount actually received either upon sale or redem ption a t m aturity during th e taxable year for which the retu rn is made, as ordinary gain or loss.
