Not all equipment acquisitions, budgets or equipment finance agreements are the same. Municipal lease financing has distinctive advantages over commercial equipment leasing.
- The municipal lease includes termination for non-appropriation language. The non-appropriation clause, in cases where the lessee is unable to obtain funding for future payment obligations on the lease, enables the lessee to terminate the lease agreement at the end of the current appropriation period without further obligation or penalty.
- A municipal lease is referred to as a “municipal lease purchase”. During the term of the lease, the municipality holds the title to the leased equipment while the lessor holds the security interest. It is a full payout contract to purchase the equipment rather than a series of rental payments as with traditional commercial leases. The financing is structured so that there is no residual value, balloon payment or purchase option to consider.
- A Municipal lease is also referred to as “tax-exempt” because the interest income on a municipal lease is tax exempt to the lessor. The municipality benefits when the lessor passes these savings on to the municipality in the form of a lower interest cost.
- Municipal lease payments build equity in the future unencumbered ownership of the asset. Without penalty, the lessee has the option of purchasing the equipment outright, at any time, for a predetermined purchase price consisting of the remainder of principal and any accrued interest.

Key Features of a Municipal Lease
Fast, simple & cost effective. Lease approvals and documentation are very inexpensive to initiate. Lease transactions can be approved and lease documentation supplied within 24-48 hours. Lease Purchase transactions can normally be finalized within 7-10 business days.
100% financing to include delivery and installation costs. Vendors are paid promptly upon funding of the lease.
Equipment and Real Property financed through a tax-exempt lease may be funded into escrow to facilitate project financing or progress payment requirements.
Tax-exempt interest. Lease payments include principal and an interest portion. The IRS has determined that interest paid in this manner is exempt from federal and state income tax. This means the municipality can take advantage of lower interest costs.
No debt created. Lease payments are subject to annual appropriations, which means, the obligation is not subject to statutory debt limitations. Since no debt is created, municipal leases do not require voter approval.
Budget enhancement. Leasing allows public agencies to acquire needed improvements now rather than wait until next FY or beyond.
Leveraged dollars. Leases may be designed to match finance terms to the expected useful life of the asset and spread the cost over a multi-year period.
Flexibility. Payments may begin upon installation or delayed until the next fiscal year. In addition, they may be made in monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual installments.
