Standard time, Monday, February 17, 1947. Tenders wili not be received at the Treasury Department, Washington. Each tender
must be for an even multiple of $1,000, and the price offered must be expressed on the basis o f 100, with not more than
three decimals, e. g., 99.925. Fractions may not be used. It is urged that tenders be made on the printed forms and forwarded
in the special envelopes which will be supplied by Federal Reserve Banks or Branches on application therefor.
Tenders will be received without deposit from incorporated banks and trust companies and from
responsible and
recognized dealers in investment securities.
Tenders from others must be accompanied by payment of 2 percent of the
face amount of Treasury bills applied for, unless the tenders are accompanied by an express guaranty of
payment by an
incorporated bank or trust company.
Immediately after the closing hour, tenders will be opened at the Federal Reserve Banks and Branches, following which
public announcement will be made by the Secretary of the Treasury of the amount and price range of accepted bids. Those
submitting tenders will be advised of the acceptance or rejection thereof. The 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, tenders for $200,000 or less from any one bidder at 99.905 entered on a fixed-price basis will be accepted
in full. Payment of accepted tenders at the prices offered must be made or completed at the Federal Reserve Bank in cash
or other immediately available funds on February 20, 1947.
The income derived from Treasury bills, whether interest or gain from the sale or other disposition of the bills, shall
not have any exemption, as such, and loss from the sale or other disposition of Treasury bills shall not have any special
treatment, as such, under Federal tax Acts now or hereafter enacted. The bills shall be subject to estate, inheritance, gift,
or other excise taxes, whether Federal or State, but shall be exempt 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.
For purposes of taxation the amount of discount at which Treasury bills are originally sold by the United States shall be
considered to be interest. Under Sections 42 and 117 (a ) (1) of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended by Section 115 of
the Revenue Act of 1941, the amount of discount at which bills issued hereunder are sold shall not be considered to accrue
until such bills shall be sold, redeemed 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, whether on original issue or on subsequent
purchase, and the amount actually received either upon sale or redemption at maturity during the taxable year for which the return
is made, as ordinary gain or loss.
Treasury Department Circular No. 418, as amended, and this notice, prescribe the terms o f the Treasury bills and govern the
conditions of their issue. Copies of the circular may be obtained from any Federal Reserve Bank or Branch.

In accordance with the above announcement tenders will be received at the Securities Department of this bank (9th
floor, 33 Liberty Street) New York 45, N. Y ., or at the Buffalo Branch of this bank (270 Main Street) Buffalo 5, N. Y .,
up to two o’clock p.m., Eastern Standard time, on Monday, February 17, 1947. It is requested that tenders be sub­
mitted on special form printed on reverse side and returned in special envelope enclosed herewith. Payment for the
Treasury bills cannot be made by credit through the War Loan Deposit Account. Payment must be made in cash or
other immediately available funds.
A l l a n S pro u l,

President.
