Some muni bonds are subject to AMT. Some are even taxable in the regular manner. If one bond gives a much higher yield than others of the same rating and maturity, check that detail.

If you are starting to buy muni bonds, review your taxes and see whether you are subject to AMT, or whether additional tax-advantaged income might either put you in the AMT bracket or restrict your ability to collect tax credits. Make the decision whether you are or are not interested in a bond subject to AMT.

Best wishes, Chris
