QZABs: Qualified Zone Academy Bonds

The U.S. Department of Education's plan for rebuilding America's schools

In 1997 the United States Congress enacted the Tax Payer Relief Act which authorized a little known debt instrument for school finance called Qualified Zone Academy Bonds or QZABs. They allow qualifying schools to borrow at little or NO INTEREST COST.

We have helped hundreds of school districts meet the 10% contribution requirement.

Qualified Tax Credit Bond Rates
QZABs allow certain qualified schools to borrow money at extremely attractive terms. That is because the purchaser of the QZAB will receive a Federal Tax Credit that will subsidize much, if not all, of the school districts interest cost.

Registered Broker-Dealer?

All firms selling bonds (including QZABs) MUST BE a registered BROKER-DEALER. Always Ask if the person contacting you is registered with FINRA and the SEC.

I highly recommend McLiney and Company. They walked us through the process, and were clearly operating in the best interest of the district. I have already recommended them to neighboring districts, and wouldn't hesitate about using them again in the future.

I started working with McLiney And Company in 2001 on the first QZAB in the state of Minnesota for the Austin School District. Since then I have completed three additional QZAB issues using McLiney, the last one being for Albert Lea Area Schools in 2011. Working with them makes the QZAB process simple.
