Yarmuth Lauds Passage of Alternative Minimum Tax Fix

 

Bill will provide tax relief for 43,000 in Louisville


(Washington, DC) Today, the House of Representatives passed the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) Relief Act of 2008, providing $50 billion in middle class tax relief nationwide.  Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) supported the bills passage, and released the following statement:

“This bill will prevent 43,000 Louisvillians from being unfairly taxed at a higher rate.  It’s one more way that we can ease the burden on our hard-working families, and I will continue to fight for policies that help people with the skyrocketing cost of gasoline, food, healthcare, and education."
