Do municipal bonds increase MAGI?

Asked by: megan 384 views YA Discussion

I am looking to invest in a municipal bond fund. My major concern is trying keep both my AGI and more specifically my MAGI to remain eligible for ROTH IRAs and Passive Income losses.

How others found here:

  • does income from muni bonds contribute to AGI
  • how does municipal bond income affect modified agi ?
  • is municipal bond interest added to the magi?

    The MAGI calculations for your Roth are not affected by non-taxable interest on municipal bonds. Ditto for passive losses.

    your IRA’s are based on earned income, not cap gains or passive gains or losses
