DATE

FRIDAY,

DECEMBER

22,

1967-

182-DAY BILLS for $1,000,000,000, or thereabouts, to be dated December 28, 1667, and to mature June 27, 1968.
The bills of both series will be issued on a discount basis under competitive and noncompetitive bidding as hereinafter
provided, and at maturity their face amount will be payable without interest. They will be issued in bearer form only, and in
denominations of $1,000, $5,000, $10,000, $50,000, $100,000, $500,000 and $1,000,000 (maturity value).
Tenders will be received at Federal Reserve Banks and Branches up to the closing hour, one-thirty p.m., Eastern
Standard Time, Friday, December 22, 1967. Tenders will not be received at the Treasury Department, Washington. Each
tender must be for an even multiple of $1,000, and in the case of competitive tenders the price offered must be expressed on
the basis of 100, with not more than three decimals, e.g., 99.925. Fractions may not be used. It is urged that tenders be made
on the printed forms and forwarded in the special envelopes which will be supplied by Federal Reserve Banks or Branches
on application therefor.
Banking institutions generally may submit tenders for account of customers provided the names of the customers are
set forth in such tenders. Others than banking institutions will not be permitted to submit tenders except for their own account.
Tenders will be received without deposit from incorporated banks and trust companies and from responsible and recognized
dealers in investment securities. Tenders from others must be accompanied by payment of 2 percent of the face amount of
Treasury bills applied for, unless the tenders are accompanied by an express guaranty of payment by an incorporated bank or
trust company.
Immediately after the closing hour, tenders will be opened at the Federal Reserve Banks and Branches, following which
public announcement will be made by the Treasury Department of the amount and price range of accepted bids. Those
submitting tenders will be advised of the acceptance or rejection thereof. The Secretary of the Treasury express^ reserves the
right to accept or reject any or all tenders, in w'hole or in part, and his action in any such respect shall be final. Subject to
these reservations, noncompetitive tenders for each issue for $200,000 or less without stated price from any one bidder will be
accepted in full at the average price (in three decimals) of accepted competitive bids for the respective issues. Settlement for
accepted tenders in accordance with the bids must be made or completed at the Federal Reserve Bank on December 28, 1967, in
cash or other immediately available funds or in a like face amount of Treasury bills maturing December 28, 1967. Cash and
exchange tenders will receive equal treatment. Cash adjustments will be made for differences between the par value of matur­
ing bills accepted in exchange and the issue price of the new bills.
The income derived from Treasury bills, whether 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 Treasury bills does not have any special treatment,
as such, under the Internal Revenue Code of 1954. The bills are subject to estate, inheritance, gift or other excise taxes, whether
Federal or State, but are exempt from all taxation now or hereafter imposed on the principal or interest thereof by any State,
or any of the possessions of the United States, or by any local taxing authority. For purposes of taxation the amount of discount
at which Treasury bills are originally sold by the United States is considered to be interest. Under Sections 454 (b ) and
1221 (5) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 the amount of discount at which bills issued hereunder are sold is not con­
sidered to accrue until such bills are sold, redeemed or otherwise disposed of, and such bills are excluded from consideration as
capital assets. Accordingly, the owner of Treasury bills (other than life insurance companies) issued hereunder need include
in his income tax return only the difference between tire price paid for such bills, whether on original issue or on subsequent
purchase, and the amount actually received either upon sale or redemption at maturity during the taxable year for which the
return is made, as ordinary gain or loss.
Treasury Department 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 may be obtained from any Federal Reserve Bank or Branch.
In accordance with the above announcement, tenders w ill be received a t this b an k an d its branches at El Paso,
Houston an d San A n to n io up to tw elve-thirty p.m., Central Standard Time, Friday, December 22, 1967. Tenders may
not be entered by telephone.
Yours very truly,
W afrous H. Irons
President
