I've just bought some 6-month Treasury Bills through TD, and all has gone smoothly so far. However, as my HSBC Online Savings Account is now paying 4.8% with no notice for access to my money, I will probably keep other funds there.It depends on how much you value liquidity, but the Treasuries are currently trading at 5.22% APR = 5.30% APY. With 5% state tax savings, that 5.58% tax equivalent yield. Still well above savings accounts. Never know for sure what the yields will be next week though.If you do value the liquidity alot, and you have, say $2K in your efund for each month of your goal (i.e. $12K for a 6 month efund), you could always just do $1K in T-Bills, so you split the difference.
