Congress has “patched” the alternative minimum tax (AMT) each year for the past four years by bumping up the exemption amounts.

Below are the recent exemption amounts and the lower scheduled amounts for 2010 unless Congress takes action.

Tip: The exemption amounts phase out by 25 cents for each dollar of AMT income above $150,000 ($112,500 for single filers). The phaseout thresholds have not been patched in recent years.
