After seeing money flee in recent weeks, tax-exempt money market funds inched up slightly by $1.29 billion for the week ending Sept. 7 to settle at $442.70 billion, according to the Money Fund Report, a service of iMoneyNet.com.

That was a switch from the week ending Aug. 31, when $4.70 billion of cash exited tax-exempt money funds and total assets dropped to $441.40 billion. That came on the heels of $17.3 million of outflows for the week ending Aug. 24, and $2.82 billion for the week before that.
