Does anybody know if/when Congress will do a patch for the 2008 AMT exemption amount (which otherwise would drop to 45,000)? I believe they did it in december 07 for the 2007 exemption amount.

On a side-note, am I the only one "slightly" ticked off by these year-to-year, late in the year changes, which makes it gruesome to do tax planning when you are close to the AMT-threshold?

Thanks in advance

Maarten
