How to do business with us
I would like to get additional information about doing business with you. What do you charge on a transaction? How do you set up an account with you so that online purchasing is possible? Do you offer an online calculator that allows a client to look at the yield and tax savings at the same time?
James A. Klotz responds:
All bond offerings on our website are net. There are no additional costs, commissions or fees. You can open an account online, at www.fmsbonds.com, or by contacting us directly. You might find it helpful to visit the “Buying Bonds Online” section of our Web site. We currently do not offer a calculator online, though the taxable equivalent yield can be calculated by dividing the tax-free yield by the reciprocal of your tax bracket. For example: in a 28% tax bracket, divide by 72; in a 35% tax bracket, divide by 65. If you need assistance, please e-mail us or telephone us at 800-367-2663.
Do you have specific criteria for bonds you’re looking for? Let us know and we’ll e-mail you bonds that fit your needs. There is no charge for this service.
