Municipal Bond Yields: Whose Tax Rates Matter?

Author

Listed:
  • Fortune, Peter

Abstract

Examines the New View of yield spreads between taxable and tax-exempt bonds, which argues that personal income taxes are irrelevant to the relationship between interest rates on tax-exempt and taxable bonds. Finds evidence that the implicit tax rate, adjusted for quality differences, is related to statutory personal income tax rates.
