Course Description

Those who cope with the Alternative Minimum Tax by simply making the required entries on the IRS forms when the filing season rolls around are likely to make errors, face surprises, or miss planning opportunities. This course goes beyond the mechanical rules of AMT to provide a deeper understanding of this parallel system of taxation. Part I explains the workings of the system in general, while Part II deals with advanced aspects of interest to holders of incentive stock options.
