Purpose of Municipal Bonds

Municipal bonds are an excellent method of financing the infrastructure needs of municipalities. These needs vary greatly but can include schools, streets and highways, bridges, hospitals, public housing, sewer and water systems, power utilities, and various public projects.

What are Municipal Bonds

Municpal bonds are loans to states, school districts, cities, counties and other government agencies. When you buy a municipal bond, you are lending money to one of these entities. In return for your purchase, the issuer promises to pay a specified interest rate. This interest can be either federally tax exempt or federally taxable.

When investing, municipal bonds should be considered and compared to other investment options.

As a potential issuer, municipal bonds are frequently the most efficacious and reasonable way to pay for capital projects.
