The fund invests in Build America Bonds issued by various state and other municipal entities. Long-term maturity and employs about 35% leverage.

the dividend is taxable so may be idle to park it inside IRA.

I have bought a 5% position for my IRA and probably will scale it down to 3% when the NAV discount reverts to average of 7%
