You Thought Property Taxes Were Bad? What about the Alternative Minimum Tax?

First, a disclaimer. I am not a CPA nor accountant and I don’t play one on t.v. To find out whether you are subject to the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) contact your accountant or CPA.

The AMT was originally enacted in 1969 in order to make sure that high income individuals paid income tax. Over the years, inflation has gone up resulting in more people’s income becoming subject to the AMT, which is not indexed to inflation.

In 1995 only 414,000 individuals paid AMT. By 2001 1.3 million people were subject to the tax. This year, 23.4 million people will be subject to it.

Why is this scary? You could be one of the 23.4 million! This tax is now affecting the middle class.

  1. If you earn over $75,000 you will need to do some calculations when Calculatorpreparing your tax returns to determine whether you are subject to the AMT. Under the AMT rules, if the amount you owe under the AMT tax schedule is higher that on your regular tax schedule, you must pay the difference in addition to your regular taxes.

The AMT disallows a lot of popular deductions, such as those for dependants, State and Local taxes, some medical and dental expenses.

So, families with children are more likely to fall under the AMT than those without children, and married couples are 12 times more likely to fall under the AMT than singles.

The good news is we are coming up on an election year and Congress should address the AMT or there are going to be a lot of unhappy voters in 2008 after having had to pay the AMT.

Unless Congress comes up with a fix for the AMT, I would suggest the following: I Love South FloridaStay single, don’t have children and live in Florida!

    Thanks for the suggestions about credit repair on your web-site. Things i would tell people is to give up a mentality they will buy now and pay out later. Being a society many of us tend to do that for many factors. This includes vacations, furniture, in addition to items we want. However, you’ll want to separate your own wants out of the needs. When you are working to raise your credit ranking score make some trade-offs. For example you are able to shop online to save cash or you can turn to second hand outlets instead of expensive department stores with regard to clothing.

    Thanks for your content. One other thing is that if you are advertising your property on your own, one of the concerns you need to be cognizant of upfront is just how to deal with house inspection accounts. As a FSBO home owner, the key concerning successfully transferring your property plus saving money with real estate agent commissions is understanding. The more you know, the easier your property sales effort are going to be. One area where this is particularly critical is information about home inspections.

    Thanks for your write-up. What I want to say is that while looking for a good on the internet electronics store, look for a site with total information on key elements such as the privacy statement, security details, any payment guidelines, as well as other terms and also policies. Often take time to see the help along with FAQ sections to get a greater idea of the way the shop works, what they can do for you, and how you can take full advantage of the features.

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few folks are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy I came across this during my search for something regarding this.

I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Appreciate it

  48. Luke Lyman September 18th, 2019 at 8:08:11 am

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

    My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on several websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  55. Eric Nolan September 16th, 2019 at 12:28:19 pm

    I do agree with all of the concepts you have offered to your post. They’re really convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for newbies. May just you please lengthen them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.

  60. Michael Mackenzie September 14th, 2019 at 12:42:25 pm

    Thanks for your posting. One other thing is the fact that individual states have their very own laws that affect homeowners, which makes it quite difficult for the our elected representatives to come up with a fresh set of rules concerning foreclosures on people. The problem is that every state provides own guidelines which may have interaction in an adverse manner in relation to foreclosure guidelines.

    I have learned some new things from your internet site about desktops. Another thing I’ve always thought is that computer systems have become an item that each residence must have for most reasons. They offer convenient ways to organize the home, pay bills, go shopping, study, listen to music and in many cases watch television shows. An innovative strategy to complete all of these tasks is to use a notebook. These personal computers are mobile ones, small, highly effective and easily transportable.

  78. Michael Blake September 8th, 2019 at 2:17:45 pm
