Why not a tax-exempt money market fund? I'd be very careful with bond funds: your capital isn't guaranteed to be there when you need it. The sales person might stress the greater yield that's *possible*, but if you need this for school in the next year, I'd go with a money market. I speak from experience: I put funds that were earmarked for a house remodel into a bond fund, and I watched the value drop 1% in one month. If you want better yield, just buy some bonds from the US Treasury: you'll know exactly how much you'll get at the end of the term.AmyNot a tax professional, just another invester.
