Our mission is to correct an injustice created by the way in which the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) is inappropriately and unjustly imposed upon owners of incentive stock options. Through the building of a grassroots tax reform organization we seek to urge Congress to correct this flawed tax code, which has resulted in financial devastation for taxpayers obeying this law.

June 11, 2006 - Single Mother Loses Her Home (Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-CA-52) The IRS has forced a single mother to sell her home to pay for taxes that far exceed both her annual income and the gross proceeds of her stock. Back in April, we asked Congress to help before it was too late (Her April Letter to Congress). She has now lost her home and is still being forced to make monthly payments to the IRS. To the Honorable Members of both the House and Senate, PLEASE HELP STOP THIS NONSENSE!Read her latest letter.
May 2, 2006 - Illinois Family Loses Everything (Rep. Jesse Jackson, D-IL-2) The IRS forced a family of four out of their home this last February. Husband and Wife of 30 years, Dan and Vicki Taylor have lost everything. And, their children are suffering too. The Taylor's Son had to give up his education at a university; and the Taylor's Daughter had to move in with relatives. All of this because of a tax on NO INCOME --- a tax greater than the Taylor's net worth --- the AMT on ISOs. Read their story.To the Honorable Members of both the House and Senate, please help the Taylors and bring their family back together.
