Municipal Bonds: The Status of the Tax Exemption

10:45 am - 12:15 pm

Nearly every city has infrastructure needs. Tax exempt municipal bonds are a primary means of funding infrastructure improvements. Because income from these bonds is tax exempt, cities are able to finance infrastructure investments at lower costs to their citizens. Will proposed federal tax reforms affect the status of the tax-exemption? During this moderated panel session, city leaders, tax and municipal finance experts will discuss the potential impacts of tax reform on the ability of cities to use tax-exempt municipal bonds as a smart funding mechanism for infrastructure. You’ll also hear how bonds can be used in conjunction with public-private partnerships for city projects.
