Where Do We Currently Stand with the AMT Patch? Bush Tax Cuts?

Taxpayers are getting nervous. The IRS is getting nervous. Lawmakers are...working on it. With so many questions still lingering regarding the fate of AMT and the Bush tax cuts following the midterm elections, uncertainty is clouding  many taxpayers' year-end tax planning efforts.

So where do we currently stand with AMT? This article from The Hill sheds some light on the widely expected patch that will yet again surface. And what about the Bush Tax Cuts? Forbes has provided some potential outcomes along with their likelihood in this recent article.

In the end, it is hard to believe that any significant changes will take place between now and December 31st. Rather, we will likely see a year-end scramble to preserve  the status quo and table discussions about their future until 2011, when a similar chain of events will likely repeat itself.
