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

Under Sections 454 (b ) and 1221 ( 5 ) of the Internal R evenue Code of 1954 the amount of discount at which bills issued
hereunder are sold is considered to accrue when the bills are sold, redeem ed or otherwise disposed of, and the bills are excluded
from consideration as capital assets. Accordingly, the owner of Treasury bills (other than 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, whether on
original issue or on subsequent purchase, and the am ount actually received either upon sale or redem ption at m aturity during the
taxable year for which the return is made.
Treasury D epartm ent Circular No. 418 (current revision) and this notice, prescribe the terms of the Treasury bills and
govern the conditions of their issue. Copies of the circular m ay be obtained from any Federal R eserve Bank or Branch.
