T h e bills are subject to estate, inheritance, gift or other excise taxes, whether Federal or State, but are exem pt from all taxation now or hereafter im posed 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 at which Treasury bills are originally sold by the U n ited States is considered to be interest. Under Sections 454 ( 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 not considered to accrue until such bills are sold, redeem ed or otherwise disposed of, and such b ills are excluded from consideration as capital assets. Accordingly, the owner of Treasury bills (other than life insurance com panies) issued hereunder need include in his incom e tax return only the difference betw een the price paid for such 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 m ade, as ordinary gain or loss.
