The Joint Committee on Taxation has issued a report on the individual alternative minimum tax in advance of a Senate Finance Committee hearing scheduled for Wed., June 27. The JCT report listed several selected reform options, which include: indexing or increasing the exemption amounts; allowing the deduction for personal exemptions and standard deductions to be used when computing the AMT; permitting state and local taxes against the AMT; reducing the minimum tax rates; eliminating the phase-out of the minimum tax exemption; allowing nonrefundable personal credits to offset the minimum tax after 2006; and repealing the AMT. The report is available at: http://www.house.gov/jct/x-38-07.pdf.
