A tax free municipal bond is a bond (fixed income investment) issued by a local government, or their agencies. Potential issuers of tax free municipal bonds include states, cities, counties, redevelopment agencies, special-purpose districts, school districts, public utility districts, publicly owned airports and seaports, and any other governmental entity (or group of governments) at or below the state level. Tax free municipal bonds may be general obligations of the issuer or secured by specified revenues.

In the United States, interest income received by holders of tax free municipal bonds is often exempt from the federal income tax, and may be exempt or tax free from state income tax, although municipal bonds issued for certain purposes may not be tax exempt or tax free.  The objective of tax free municipal bonds is to provide income that is free from federal income tax and, in some cases, state and local income tax.    Tax free municipal bonds are well suited for income-oriented investors seeking tax free income.  Some of the features of Tax Free Municipal Bonds include: Regular Income, Superior Credit Quality, Liquidity, Call Protection and Tax Advantages.  For a complete listing of specific issuer information, such as official statements, issuer disclosures and tax free municipal bond pricing, please visit the MSRB’s Electronic Municipal Market Access (EMMA) at www.emma.msrb.org.

What are municipal bonds

 

 

Municipal bonds are debt obligations issued by states, cities, counties and other governmental entities, which use the money to build schools, highways, hospitals, sewer systems, and many other projects for the public good.

When you purchase a municipal bond, you are lending money to a state or local government entity, which in turn promises to pay you a specified amount of interest (usually paid semiannually) and return the principal to you on a specific maturity date.

Not all municipal bonds offer income exempt from both federal and state taxes. There is an entirely separate market of municipal issues that are taxable at the federal level, but still offer a state—and often local—tax exemption on interest paid to residents of the state of issuance.

Most of this municipal bond information refers to munis which are free of federal taxes.
