Build America Bonds (BABs), are Federally Taxable but State tax exempt municipal bonds. Build America Bonds are debt securities issued by a state, municipality or county to finance capital expenditures. Like municipal bonds, these bonds are secured by the municipality that issues the bonds.

There are two kinds of Build America Bonds (BABs):


Tax Credit BABs

  • BABs issuers receive a subsidy from the federal government. (More popular and is the structure for most BABs)

Direct Payment BABs

  • BABs holders receive a tax credit equal to 35% of the interest on the bond each year from the federal government
