sarath III: Interest payments are tax exempt for municipal bonds.....
DashingDude I don't think that all municipal bonds enjoy the same tax-free treatment
aakash1108 i agree with DashingDude....it is clearly stated in the book that Municipal bonds have been issued without tax exempt returns; however, they are still referred to as "tax exempt bonds"...
bidisha U still have to pay state tax on them
sahilb7 This question has taxed my brain too much already..
janis36 If the bond is called at 107% of par is 7 treated as interest income or capital gains?
Eversar I was under the impression capital gains on muni bonds are taxed? A bond called over par would result in cap gains?
