Every year more and more taxpayers are getting slapped with the Alternative Minimum Tax. Until Congress does something about it, the problem will only get worse. The IRS now has a tool to help you find out whether or not you will be affected by the AMT. I just went through the program (we don’t owe AMT!) and found it easy to use. One thing I will point out though is that it works with the 2005 Form 1040, which is different from last year’s Form 1040.
