As a resident alien working in the US, what kinds of taxes will I be liable for when investing in mutual funds and money market funds?

Some funds are federal, state, or municipal tax-exempt, will that apply to me?


  • not sure if the question is about your "resident alien" status or mutual fund exemptions?

  • Maybe both? i.e. What are the different tax considerations if you are a resident alien, instead of a citizen?

Resident Alien is liable for the same taxes as a citizen. Citizenship has nothing to do with taxes.
