F ederal or State, b u t are exem pt from all taxation now or hereafter im posed on the principal or interest thereof b y any State,
or any of th e possessions of th e U nited States, or by an y local taxing authority. F or purposes of taxation th e am ount of discount
a t w hich T reasury bills are originally sold by th e U nited States is considered to be interest. U nder Sections 454 (b ) and 1221 (5 )
of th e Internal R evenue Code of 1954 th e am ount of discount a t which bills issued hereunder are sold is not considered to
accrue until such bills are sold, redeem ed or otherwise disposed of, and such bills are excluded from consideration as capital
assets. Accordingly, th e owner of T reasury bills (other th an life insurance com panies) issued hereunder need include in his
income tax retu rn only th e difference between th e 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 aturity during th e taxable year for which th e return is
m ade, as ordinary gain or loss.
