A new CTJ fact sheet explains that for the 2011 tax year, 97 percent of the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) will be paid by the richest five percent of taxpayers and 58 percent of the AMT will be paid by the richest one percent of taxpayers. Even in the (very unlikely) event that Congress fails to enact AMT relief for 2012, the tax will still largely be borne by the well-off.
