count basis of 360-days, as is currently the practice on all issues of Treasury bills.) It is urged that tenders be m ade on the printed
forms and forwarded in the special envelopes which w ill be supplied by Federal R eserve Banks or Branches on application therefor.
B anking institutions generally m ay subm it tenders for account of custom ers provided the nam es of the customers are

Im m ediately after the closing hour, tenders w ill be opened at the Federal R eserve Banks and Branches, follow ing which
public announcem ent w ill be m ade by the Treasury D epartm ent of the am ount and price range of accepted bids. Only those sub­
m itting com petitive tenders w ill be advised of the acceptance or rejection thereof. 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, noncom petitive tenders for each issue for $200,000 or less without stated price from any one
bidder w ill be accepted in full at the average price (in three decim als) of accepted com petitive bids for the respective issues.
S ettlem ent for accepted tenders in accordance with the bids m ust be m ade or com pleted at the Federal R eserve Bank on
January 31, 1972, in cash or other im m ediately available funds or in a like face am ount of Treasury bills maturing
January 31, 1972. Cash and exchange tenders w ill receive equal treatm ent. Cash adjustm ents w ill be made for differences
betw een the par value of m aturing bills accepted in exchange and the issue price of the new bills.
U nder Sections 454 ( b ) and 1221 ( 5 ) of the Internal R evenue Code of 1954 the am ount of discount at which bills issued
hereunder are sold is considered to accrue when the bills are sold, redeem ed or otherwise disposed of, and the bills are excluded
from consideration as capital assets. Accordingly, the owner of Treasury bills (other than life insurance com panies) issued here­
under m ust include in his income tax return, as ordinary gain or loss, the difference betw een the price paid for the bills, whether on
original issue or on subsequent purchase, and the am ount actually received either upon sale or redem ption at m aturity during the
taxable year for which the return is made.
Treasury D epartm ent Circular No. 418 (current revision) and this notice, prescribe the term s of the Treasury bills and
govern the conditions of their issue. Copies of the circular m ay be obtained from any Federal R eserve Bank or Branch.
