U nder Sections 454 (b ) and 1221 (5 ) of th e Internal R evenue Code of 1954 the am ount of discount a t which bills issued

from consideration as capital assets. Accordingly, the owner of T reasury bills (other th an life insurance com panies) issued here­
under m ust include in his income tax return, as ordinary gain or loss, the difference between the price paid for the 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 aturity during the
taxable y ear for which th e retu rn is made.
