Did you know that depending on your current tax bracket, you could pay as much as $39 in federal income taxes for every $100 earned on a fully taxable investment? Most municipal bonds offer income that is exempt from federal income tax. You keep more of what you earn instead of paying a portion to the government. In addition, if you live in the state in which the issuing municipality or agency is located, they are generally exempt from income taxes in that state. Income may be subject to federal alternative minimum tax.
Just what are municipal bonds? Municipal bonds are debt instruments issued by states, municipalities, their agencies or their political subdivisions. By purchasing municipal bonds you're making a loan that's used to fund public works projects that include building schools, improving roads, or repairing bridges. In return you're entitled to regular interest payments and repayment of your principal when the bond matures.
