I've been reading and some of this is based on the Alternative Minimum Tax. I'm still trying to get my head around the whole thing but basically Congress forgot to re-set the income that qualifies for AMT so it is now at $45,000 for married couples. There are exemptions as well that don't qualify if you pay AMT.
Perhaps someone more knowledgeble in tax law can help me figure this out.
