With the new 15% max tax on dividends, what is the effect on the AMT? Will the tax on dividends remain at 15% or will they be taxed at the AMT rate of 26/28%?

The 15% maximum income tax rate also applies when computing the alternative minimum tax. Since the income is subject to tax at the same rate, but certain deductions, including state income taxes, are not deductible for AMT, more taxpayers will be subject to AMT thanks to this tax change.
