Tax-Exempt Bonding Programs
For projects larger than $1 million, bonding programs may be an extremely flexible and inexpensive way to finance a project. Bonding programs come with tax benefits for the purchaser of the bonds resulting in a lower interest rate for you. This type of financing is defiantly worth asking your lender about.
