In order to prevent your money from losing value due to inflation, the U.S. Treasury has issued safe investments known as I bonds. I bonds’ interest rates are periodically changed to reflect changing market conditions. For investors who reside in high-tax states and localities, the fact that series I bonds are free from state and local income taxes makes them an even better low-risk option.
I bonds can be purchased by investors through the TreasuryDirect website of the government for up to $10,000 per year. With the additional $5,000 you can spend from your tax refund, the annual maximum series I bond purchase per individual is now $15,000.
