* TAX PROF Paul Caron brings to our attention an article from the Dallas Morning News that reports “While presidential contenders in both parties denounce the AMT, few offer even a cursory explanation of how they would pay to scrap it or keep it from spreading.”
Speaking of the TAX PROF, as expected Paul provides links to all the appropriate press releases and reporting on George W’s nomination of Douglas H. Shulman, Vice Chairman of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (formerly known as the National Association of Securities Dealers), to be Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service.
