For state-specific tax-free funds

For the year 2013, income dividends received from investments in all classes of the funds in the chart below are generally exempt from federal income tax. The exemption of dividends for federal income tax purposes may or may not result in similar exemptions under the laws of a particular state or local taxing authority. Generally, income from bonds issued by municipalities in a particular state is not taxable in that state. Most states do not grant tax-free treatment to interest from municipal securities of other states. We recommend that you consult your tax advisor in this regard.

Listed here for your information are the percentages of interest income earned on municipal obligations on a state-by-state basis during 2013.

A note about AMT

A portion of the income paid to Delaware Investments® state-specific tax-free funds shareholders is subject to the federal alternative minimum tax (AMT) that applies to some investors. See Tax-free funds and AMT — state tax-free funds for more information.
