CHICAGO, Aug. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Board of Directors of DTF Tax-Free Income Inc. (NYSE: DTF), a closed-end fund advised by Duff & Phelps Investment Management Co., today announced the successful placement of $65 million of Variable Rate MuniFund Term Preferred Shares (VMTPs).

The preferred shares will be redeemed for 100% of their liquidation preference plus accrued and unpaid dividends, if any. The shares will be redeemed on September 19, 2013.

The newly issued VMTPs, like the redeemed RPs, will provide leverage for the fund's common shareholders.
