The AMT can kiss my @#%
You wont see AMT going away anytime soon. The Gov just cant afford to lose all that money. They keep trying to fix it, but they dont understand that it needs a total overhaul.
BTW, the IRS might not accept any tax returns until every form is released, even if your tax return does not use the specicific form thats not yet released. They were considering reverting back to the old way, but as of last week they did not.
