For 2005, 31 percent more returns reported the AMT than 2004, totaling a staggering $15.9 billion. With full-fledged repeal seemingly stalled in Congress, it appears that the best taxpayers can hope for this year is another “patch.”

The president has pledged to veto any tax increases that would make up lost AMT revenue.
