    Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Annualized dividend
yield is the latest monthly dividend shown as an annualized percentage of net
asset value/market price at month end. Annualized dividend yield simply
measures the level of dividends and is not a complete measure of performance.
Market price, annualized dividend yield, net asset value are historical and
will fluctuate and do not guarantee future results.


    DWS Municipal Income Trust seeks to provide high current income exempt
from federal income tax by investing in a diversified portfolio of
investment-grade tax-exempt securities.

    The fund invests in individual bonds whose yields and market values
fluctuate, so that your investment may be worth more or less than its original
cost. Additionally, although the fund seeks income that is federally tax-free,
a portion of the fund's distributions may be subject to federal, state, local
and alternative minimum tax. Bond investments are subject to interest-rate
risk such that when interest rates rise, the prices of the bonds, and thus the
value of the bond fund, can decline and the investor can lose principal value.

    Investments in closed-end funds involve risk. 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 sold in the open
market through a stock exchange. Shares of closed-end funds frequently trade
at a discount to net asset value. The price of the 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.

    This announcement is not an offer to purchase or the solicitation of an
offer to sell shares of the Fund or a prospectus, circular or representation
intended for use in the purchase or sale of Fund shares.
