After-Tax Return

Full Definition of After-Tax Return

The total value realized after taxes are accounted for. This number may be positive or negative. Investors usually calculate this before making investment decisions. For example, an investor in the 35% tax bracket may decide to purchase a municipal bond that has an 8% yield versus a corporate bond that has a 10% yield because the after-tax return is greater for the municipal bond than that of the corporate bond.
