Fund Goal and Approach
The fund seeks as high a level of current income exempt from federal, New York state and New York city income taxes as is consistent with the preservation of capital. Until January 1, 2016, notwithstanding any contrary information contained in the summary or statutory prospectus, the fund will normally invest substantially all of its net assets in municipal bonds that provide income exempt from federal, New York state and New York city income taxes. Thereafter, the fund will normally invest at least 80% of its net assets, plus any borrowings for investment purposes, in such municipal bonds, and may invest a portion of its assets in municipal bonds (as defined in the summary prospectus dated November 27, 2015 and the statutory prospectus dated October 1, 2015, As Revised November 27, 2015, respectively) that do not pay income exempt from New York state and New York city income taxes.
Bond Risk: Bonds are subject generally to interest rate, credit, liquidity, call and market risks, to varying degrees. Generally, all other factors being equal, bond prices are inversely related to interest-rate changes and rate increases can cause price declines.
State: Investing primarily in a single state may make the fund's portfolio securities more sensitive to risks specific to the state.
National Municipal: Income for national municipal funds may be subject to state and local taxes. Income may be subject to state and local taxes for out-of-state residents. Some income for non-AMT-Free funds may be subject to the federal alternative minimum tax for certain investors. Capital gains, if any, are taxable.
Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of the fund carefully before investing. Download a prospectus, or a summary prospectus, if available, that contains this and other information about the fund, and read it carefully before investing.
