Tax-Advantaged Fidelity Solutions

If you're looking for strategies to defer or minimize the potential impact of federal income tax on your investment returns, consider these Fidelity products and services.

Accounts with tax benefits

Opening an account is the first step. You may have a 401(k) or other retirement plan through your employer, but these accounts can increase your opportunities for tax-deferred or tax-free growth.

Retirement and IRAs
Tax-deferred and tax-free growth potential for retirement savings

529 College Savings Plans
Flexible, tax-deferred savings with tax-free withdrawals for qualified college expenses

Fidelity Personal Retirement Annuity®
Fidelity’s low-cost, deferred variable annuity for tax-deferred retirement savings

Investment options

For accounts without tax advantages, consider these investment choices that offer tax-exempt income or potentially lower exposure to capital gains tax.

Municipal bonds and funds

Municipal bonds
Federally tax-exempt interest; potentially state tax-exempt as well, for bonds held by residents of the issuing state

Municipal bond mutual funds
Similar tax exemptions as municipal bonds with the advantages of mutual fund investing

Municipal money market funds
Short-term, high-quality investments with similar potential tax advantages as municipal bond funds

Funds with lower turnover rates

Index Funds
Typically conduct less security purchases and sales, a factor which may help mitigate capital gains taxes

Mutual funds research
To find other funds with lower turnover, include turnover in your advanced search criteria (located in the Fund Management category of the Fund Evaluator).
