Municipal Income Funds: Percentage of interest income subject to AMT

The alternative minimum tax (AMT) was created for taxpayers who are eligible for certain tax deductions from their adjusted gross income. With the AMT, many deductions and credits normally allowed are eliminated for specific taxpayers.

A shareholder can determine if the AMT applies to him or her by completing the AMT calculation on IRS Form 6251 or by using the AMT Assistant Webtool available on the IRS website at irs.gov. The instructions for Form 6251 and the IRS Webtool will assist shareholders with calculating their AMT. A percentage of the income earned on the tax-exempt funds may be subject to the AMT. The information below is for calendar year 2013.
