The article reports that New Hampshire plans to enter the bond market in mid-January with an unusual competitive sale of $42.8 million of taxable general obligation bonds to fund the state's new pension plan for judges. Interest on the bonds will be tax-exempt on the state level but subject to federal income tax. New Hampshire sells most of its tax-exempt GO bonds competitively, but it is less common for governments to sell taxable bonds competitively. New Hampshire does not have a statewide income tax, but it does levy a 5% tax on interest and dividends above a certain threshold.
