FISN, a Division of Landolt Securities, Inc. is proud to offer access to the municipal bond markets in both new issues and secondary offerings. Municipal bonds (also known as "Muni's") are attractive to many investors because the interest income is exempt from federal income tax, and in many instances, both state and local taxes as well. In addition, municipal bonds often represent investments in state and local government projects that have a direct impact on our daily lives, including schools, highways, hospitals, housing, sewer systems and other important public projects.
While municipal bonds may provide tax free income, they are subject to various risks. These risks include, but are not limited to, interest rate risk which is the risk that an investment’s value will decline with a rise in interest rates and credit risk which is the risk of loss of principal resulting from a borrower’s failure to repay their debt. In addition, municipal bonds may be subject to the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) and tax law changes.
