Financial Terms To Know: Municipal Bonds

Thursday, August 23rd, 2018

Municipal Bonds
These are debt securities that are created when a state, county or municipal government embarks on a new project like a new school, water treatment plant, or road, and looks for investors to help finance it. Municipal bonds are exempt from federal income taxes and many are issued with exemptions from state and local taxes, meaning that investors keep more of the income generated from the securities.
