Stonley: AOD was a tax advantage fund meaning that a large percentage of its dividends were qualified. But since the tax cuts are due to expire, Alpine Woods management is not managing the portfolio to produce tax advantage income. If you want information just open any press announcement and find a link to the Alpine web site.
There are a lot of good municipal CEFs. VGM, VMO, MAV, PMX, BKN and EVN are some of the higher yielding funds.
rlaimbeer...A week or so ago you named tax free muni fund that have exposure to AMT. Am curious as to where this AMT exposure info is found. Am interested in aquiring tax free muni funds but am leary of AMT. Have managed to stay away from this tax. We pay enough as it is. Would appreciate any info you may share with me.
