T he Secretary of the Treasury expressly 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. 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 a t the average price (in three decimals) of accepted com petitive bids for the respective issues.

T h e income derived from T reasury bills, whether interest or gain from the sale or other disposition of th e bills, does not have any exemption, as such, and loss from the sale or other disposition of Treasury bills does not have any special treatm ent, as such, under the Internal Revenue Code of 1954. T h e bills are subject to estate, inheritance, gift or other excise taxes, w hether F ed eral 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 th e U nited States, or by any local taxing authority. For purposes of taxation th e am ount of discount a t which Treasury bills are originally sold by th e United 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 th e term s of the T reasury bills and govern the conditions of their issue. Copies of th e circular m ay be obtained from any Federal Reserve B ank o r Branch.
