F ederal or State, b u t 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 U nited States, or by any local taxing authority. F or purposes of taxation the am ount of discount
a t which 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 Revenue Code of 1954 th e am ount of discount a t which bills issued hereunder are sold is not con­
sidered to accrue un til 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 than life insurance com panies) issued hereunder need include
in his income tax return only the 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 the taxable year for which th e
return is made, as ordinary gain or loss.
T reasury D epartm ent Circular No. 418 (curren t revision) and th is notice, prescribe the term s of th e T reasury bills and
govern the conditions of their issue. Copies of th e circular may be obtained from any F ederal Reserve B ank or Branch.

2. Tenders should be forwarded in an envelope clearly addressed to this bank or appropriate branch as Fiscal Agent of the
United States, with notation on the envelope reading “TENDER FOR TREASURY OFFERING.” Since envelopes re­
ceived with this legend will not be opened until after the closing time specified in the public announcement, communi­
cations relating to other matters should not be enclosed. Envelopes for submitting tenders may be obtained from this

3. Any qualified or conditional tender will be rejected.
4. If a corporation makes the tender, the form should be signed by an officer of the corporation authorized to make the

a member of the firm.”

of the Treasury bills applied for, or unless the tenders are accompanied by an express guaranty of full payment by an
incorporated bank or trust company.

rial, the tender may be disregarded.
