Short Term Tax Exempt Bonds are municipal bonds of short duration. Their coupon payments are exempt from federal taxation (unless they are AMT preference bonds and you are subject to the AMT). Short Term Tax Exempt bonds have investment characteristics similar to those of taxable short-term bonds. It may be appropriate to use them if there isn't room for taxable bonds in your tax-deferred/tax-exempt accounts.
There are several very similar investment options available. Which is best?
The funds are listed in rough order of our overall preference.
It is imprudent to use municipal bonds in retirement accounts. So we only list preferences for taxable accounts. For retirement accounts consider Short-Term Taxable Bonds.
For a listing of our preferences in other asset classes, see here.
