public announcem ent will be m ade by the T reasury D epartm ent of the am ount and price range of accepted bids. Only those
subm itting com petitive tenders will be advised of the acceptance or rejection thereof. T he Secretary of th e T reasury 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 w ithout stated price from any one bidder will

T h e income derived from Treasury 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
F ederal or State, b u t are exem pt from all taxation now or hereafter imposed on th e principal or interest thereof by any State,
or any of the possessions of the U nited States, or by any local taxing authority. F or purposes of taxation th e am ount of discount
a t which Treasury 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 R evenue 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 the am ount actually received either upon sale or redem ption a t m atu rity during th e taxable year for which the
retu rn is m ade, as ordinary gain or loss.
T reasury D epartm ent Circular No. 418 (cu rren t revision) and this notice, prescribe th e term s of th e T reasury bills and
govern the conditions of th eir issue. Copies of the circular m ay be obtained from any F ederal Reserve B ank or Branch.
