Alternative Minimum Tax

AMT. An IRS mechanism created to ensure that high-income individuals, corporations, 

Trust

, and estates pay at least some minimum amount of tax, regardless of 

Deduction

, credits or 

Exemption

. It operates by adding certain tax-preference items back into adjusted 

Gross income

. While it was once only important for a small number of high-income individuals who made extensive use of 

Tax

 shelters and 

Deduction

, more and more people are being affected by it. The 

AMT

 is triggered when there are large numbers of personal exemptions on state and 

Local

 taxes 

Paid

, large numbers of miscellaneous itemized deductions or medical 

Expense

, or by Incentive Stock 

Option

 (ISO) plans.
