The fund offers Maryland investors triple-tax-free income. The fund's focus on short-term securities should keep price fluctuations modest, while offering higher yields and price fluctuation than municipal money market funds and less potential share price fluctuation and lower yields than the T. Rowe Price Maryland Tax-Free Bond Fund.
Yield and share price will vary with interest rate changes. Investors should note that if interest rates rise from current levels, bond fund total returns will decline and may even turn negative in the short term. There is also a chance that some of the fund's holdings may have their credit rating downgraded or may default. The fund is less diversified than one investing nationally.
