SMTAVX Tax-Advantaged Growth & Income Trust
The trust seeks to provide investors with the possibility of a high level of total after-tax return, with an emphasis on income that is exempt from regular federal income tax or that qualifies for federal income taxation at long-term capital gains rates (“tax advantaged income”) while also offering the potential for capital appreciation. There is no guarantee that the investment objectives of the trust will be achieved.
The trust seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing in a portfolio consisting primarily of (i) common stock of closed-end investment companies, known as closed-end funds, whose portfolios consist primarily of municipal bonds, the interest on which is exempt from regular federal income tax; (ii) common stocks that are eligible, as of the initial date of deposit, to pay dividends which qualify for federal income taxation rates applicable to long-term capital gain (“qualified dividend income”); and (iii) common stock of closed-end funds seeking tax-advantaged income as part of their investment strategies and/or policies or that pursue “tax managed” investment strategies and/or policies.
Cumulative returns of each unit investment trust series are based on distributions received in cash and recognized on the ex-dividend date and paid out on the payable date during the life of the unit investment trust. Returns are calculated excluding the Transactional Sales Charge for each unit investment trust series but does reflect the Creation & Development Fee and trust operating expenses as incurred for each unit investment trust series. The returns do not adjust for taxes. If adjusted or taxes, the effects of taxation would reduce the performance depicted.
Past performance is no indicator of future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate with changes in market conditions. An investment in units of a unit investment trust when redeemed may be worth more or less than the original investment.
