Important Information

DWS Municipal Income Trust. Bond investments are subject to
interest-rate, credit, liquidity and market risks to varying degrees.
When interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall. Credit risk refers
to the ability of an issuer to make timely payments of principal and
interest. Investing in derivatives entails special risks relating to
liquidity, leverage and credit that may reduce returns and/or increase
volatility. Leverage results in additional risks and can magnify the
effect of any gains or losses. Although the fund seeks income that is
exempt from federal income taxes, a portion of the fund’s distributions
may be subject to federal, state and local taxes, including the
alternative minimum tax.

Closed-end funds, unlike open-end funds, are not continuously
offered. There is a one-time public offering and once issued, shares of
closed-end funds are bought and sold in the open market through a stock
exchange. Shares of closed-end funds frequently trade at a discount to
the net asset value. The price of a fund’s shares is determined by a
number of factors, several of which are beyond the control of the fund.
Therefore, the fund cannot predict whether its shares will trade at,
below or above net asset value.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a
solicitation to buy, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in
any state or jurisdiction in which such offer or solicitation or sale
would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the laws
of such state or jurisdiction.
