About Tax Exempt Bonds


The mission of Tax Exempt Bonds (TEB) is to administer federal tax laws that apply to tax-exempt, tax credit and direct pay bonds (tax-advantaged bonds) and to provide our customers with top quality service by applying tax laws with integrity and fairness.

TEB consists of examination and technical groups responsible for:

  • Identifying and correcting noncompliance in the tax-advantaged bonds market
  • Supporting voluntary compliance by issuers of tax-advantaged bonds
  • Administering the TEB Voluntary Closing Agreement Program (VCAP)
  • Preparing and presenting outreach for the tax-advantaged bond community.
