Hello All. I was "plugging and chugging" my sons info into turbo tax today. The program came up with results that I don't agree with. Here is a summary: Turbo Tax is said he will have a federal "Alternative Minimum Tax" (paying in) to the tune of $1960. I thought the AMT is for ubber high income earners? Background: 2012 Wages: USAFA $6040, College Tutoring $1500. Total federal withheld $360 for both. How can this be? Next question: I was going to scrap Turbo Tax and simply use the good old fashion http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1040ez.pdf . But I don't understand where I claim him for 6 months? We are filling an extension. Normally I'd simply have my accountant do this but we are not going into our appointment until after April 15th. I figured it would be super simple. Not for me anyways.... Thanks!
