SBA Lenders: Beware of BSA
As year-end approaches, you may be trying to accelerate deductible expenses into 2013 to reduce, or at least defer, tax. But you must beware of the alternative minimum tax (AMT) — a separate tax system that limits some deductions and doesn’t permit others, such as:
Accelerating these expenses could trigger the AMT, because you must pay the AMT if your liability exceeds your regular tax liability.
The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 set higher AMT exemptions permanently, indexing them — as well as the AMT brackets — for inflation going forward. This will provide some AMT relief, but higher-income taxpayers could still be vulnerable.
