Tax and Loss Bonds
United States Mortgage Guaranty Insurance Company Tax and Loss Bonds are purchased by companies involved in mortgage guaranty insurance, lease guarantee insurance, and insurance of state and local obligations against loss on their loans. State insurance commissions may require companies to create a contingency loss reserve for use when losses exceed a specific percentage of premiums.
A federal tax deduction is allowed on the funds put into this reserve if the company purchases Tax and Loss Bonds in the amount of the tax benefit and under applicable laws.
- Tax and Loss Bonds are non-interest bearing book-entry securities that mature 10 or 20 years from the designated issue date.
- The bonds are issued in a minimum amount of $1,000 or in any larger amount, in increments of not less than $1.00.
