CHICAGO, Jan. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Effective at 12:01 a.m. Eastern Time on this date, the Fund formerly known as DTF Tax-Free Income Inc. has changed its name to DTF Tax-Free Income 2028 Term Fund Inc

The Fund's name change does not affect the Fund's ticker symbol (NYSE: DTF) or the CUSIP numbers assigned to the Fund's securities.

The name change was approved by the Fund's Board of Directors in December 2021 to reflect the limited term of existence of the Fund resulting from the charter amendments that were approved at the annual meeting of shareholders on February 26, 2021.  The charter amendments will cause the Fund to cease to exist on March 1, 2028, or such earlier date as may be determined by the Board.  Under the charter amendments, the Board is also authorized to extend the term of the Fund to have a perpetual existence once again, subject to the Fund having conducted a tender offer meeting certain conditions.
