Tax-exempt financing is an attractive tool that Municipalities use to spread the cost of capital equipment acquisitions over the life of the assets being financed. The cost and uncertainty involved with issuing bonds for smaller projects may be problematic. Municipal Leasing may be an attractive alternative, which provides low, tax-exempt rates with financing terms that fit today’s equipment lifecycles. Municipal Leasing may allow you to acquire the necessary capital equipment while overcoming budgetary restrictions that often arise.
