With the expiration of the “Bush Era” tax cuts and the additional healthcare law taxes, taxpayers are feeling the pinch of higher taxes. Municipal bonds offer a possible solution.
- Seek high-quality, low-volatility income. Municipal bonds have long offered a source of high-quality, low-volatility income.
- Keep more of what you own. Municipals are unique in that they offer the benefit of income exempt from federal income taxes (and in some cases, state taxes).
- Enhance your income portfolio. Adapt to higher taxes by increasing allocations to municipal funds.
