Answer #1

Calculating Alternative Minimum Tax

Taxable income = $1,190,000

Less :

Charitable contribution = $24,250

Mortgage interest expense = $48,400

Personal property taxes = $10,000 (only upto $10,000 is deductible as per IRS) (Topic 503 of deductible taxes & Topic 501 of limitations)

Alternative Minimum Tax Income = $1,107,350

(In general we have to deduct the exemption limit of $111,700 available for Jointly filing married couple, but as the income exceeded $1 million there will be no AMT exemption)

Alternative Minimum Tax = $1,107,350 x 28% (higher rate is applicable, not 26%) = $310,058
