Alternative Minimum Tax


Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT)
In addition to calculating regular income tax, taxpayers are also required to calculate tax liability using the AMT method. The taxpayer then pays the higher of the tax calculated by the two methods. Some municipal bonds are subject to AMT, meaning that if you pay AMT, the interest earned on these bonds is taxable under the AMT calculation. Other municipal bonds are not subject to AMT, meaning that even if you pay taxes using the AMT method, interest from non-AMT municipals will not be taxable. Please consult your tax advisor for complete details, and how you might be affected by buying municipal bonds that are subject to AMT.
