Hi @Terrence_Boyer, try this similar question from Achievable and see how you do!
Thank you Justin. I believe I get it now
I would consider the bond see-saw and analyze it step by step.
If it has a 6% coupon and is quoted on a 7% basis ask yourself - “is it selling at a discount or at a premium?”
If it is at a premium, then the other yields will always be lower than the coupon.
If it is at a discount, then the other yields will always be higher than the coupon.
After tax yield will always be lower than the quoted yield. Think about it, taxes always take away - how could a tax result in more?
Hope this helps.
the bit of logic for me that was missing was that Munis purchased on the 2ry MKT at a discount = taxable.
This is helpful, thank you!
