subm itting com petitive tenders w ill be advised of the acceptance or rejection thereof. T h e 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. Sub­
ject to these reservations, noncom petitive tenders for each issue for $200,000 or less w ithout stated price from any one bidder will

bills accepted in exchange and the issue price of the new bills.
U nder Sections 454 ( b ) and 1221 ( 5 ) o f the Internal R evenue Code of 1954 th e am ount o f 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 incom e tax return, as ordinary gain or loss, th e 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 a t m aturity during
th e taxable year for which the return is made.
Treasury D epartm ent Circular No. 418 (current revision) and this notice, prescribe the term s o f the Treasury bills and
govern th e conditions of their issue. Copies o f the circular m ay be obtained from any Federal R eserve Bank or Branch.
