Tax-Exempt Bond

A bond issued by a local or state government. Municipal bonds are usually used to raise capital for improvements in infrastructure or other aspects of the municipality. For example, a city or school district may issue a tax-exempt bond to build a new school or a new playground. They are called tax-exempt bonds because they are exempt from federal income taxes and sometimes from state and local taxes as well. Tax-exempt bonds usually pay lower coupons than corporate bonds, but because the yield is tax-free, the after-tax basis may be higher for the tax-exempt bond. Risk varies according to the municipality and the particular type of bond.
