The California Tax-Free Bond Fund offers investors income that is double-tax-free. The fund is expected to provide higher income than the T. Rowe Price California Tax-Free Money Fund, with more share price volatility.
Yield and share price will vary with interest rate changes. Investors should note that if interest rates rise significantly 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.
