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
