Important Information

DWS Municipal Income Trust. Bond investments are subject to varying degrees of interest rate, credit, liquidity and market risk. When interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall. Credit risk refers to an issuer’s ability to make timely payments of principal and interest. Municipal securities are subject to the risk that litigation, legislation or other political events, local business or economic conditions or the bankruptcy of the issuer could have a material effect on an issuer’s ability to make principal and/or interest payments. The market for municipal bonds may be less liquid than that for taxable bonds and there may be less information available about the financial condition of issuers of municipal securities than for public corporations. Investing in derivatives involves special liquidity, leverage and credit risks which may reduce returns and/or increase volatility. Leverage involves additional risk and can magnify the effect of any gain or loss. Although the fund seeks income exempt from federal income tax, a portion of the fund’s distributions may be subject to federal, state and local taxes, including alternative minimum tax.
