public announcem ent will be made by the T reasury D epartm ent of th e am ount and price range of accepted bids. Those

right to accept or reject any or all tenders, in whole 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

T h e income derived from T reasury bills, w hether 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 T reasury bills does not have any special treatm ent,
as such, under th e Internal Revenue Code of 1954. T he 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 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. F o r purposes of taxation the am ount of discount
a t which Treasury bills are originally sold by the U nited States is considered to be interest. U nder Sections 454 ( b ) and
1221 (5 ) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 the am ount of discount a t which bills issued hereunder are sold is not con­
sidered to accrue until such bills are sold, redeem ed 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 the price paid for such bills, w hether on original issue or on subsequent
purchase, and th e am ount actually received either upon sale or redem ption a t m aturity during the taxable year for which the
retu rn is made, as ordinary gain or loss.
Treasury D epartm ent Circular No. 418 (current revision) and this notice, prescribe the term s of th e T reasury bills and
govern the conditions of their issue. Copies of the circular may be obtained from any Federal Reserve Bank or Branch.
