Munis in mind

For over 200 years, municipal bonds ("munis")—debt securities issued by states, cities, and counties—have helped fund US infrastructure projects such as schools, utilities, transit systems, and more. The interest they pay is generally exempt from federal taxes and sometimes from state and local taxes, too, which may be important to investors in high income-tax brackets. More than 90% of the bonds in the $3.7 trillion muni market have a high credit rating, and a large proportion pay an above-market interest rate (coupon).*
