The 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act did not repeal the individual AMT, it merely modified it for 2018 and beyond. The changes in the Act may have raised the AMT entry point, but it will still impact many upper income taxpayers - some of your best clients! This program will look at both the AMT for 2017 returns you are preparing this year and the 2018 tax returns on your horizon.
