Municipal bond fund

A mutual 

Fund

 which invests in municipal bonds. These bond funds are popular among investors in 

High

 income 

Tax

 brackets because they are 

Exempt

 from federal taxes and, in some cases, from state taxes as well. As with U.S. government 

Bond fund

, the underlying securities in 

Municipal bond

 funds are backed by the government and thus are considered to have a high 

Credit

 rating. However, municipalities have been known to 

Declare

 bankruptcy on occasion, making these funds more risky than U.S. government bonds. also called 

Muni

 fund.
