Filed under 2004 Q4, NARMS Today Archives

BothDee Mason will suffer when there are family orrelationship problems, legal and financial concerns, health and emotional difficulties, stress, or substance abuse. What is often not understood is that when substance abuse is involved, the workplace is often the last bastion of a person’s life that shows damage.

Seven years ago, only 600,000 taxpayers were affected by the AMT. The number may skyrocket to 16 million by next year and 40 million in ten years unless Congress provides substantial relief.
