Technical and Miscellaneous Revenue Act of 1988
|Long title||An act to make technical corrections relating to the Tax Reform Act of 1986, and for other purposes.|
|Enacted by||the 100th United States Congress|
|Public law||Pub.L. 100–647|
The Technical and Miscellaneous Revenue Act of 1988 (TAMRA) (Pub.L. 100–647) made corrections to the Tax Reform Act of 1986 and the Revenue Act of 1987. For example: The 1986 Act introduced the "Kiddie" tax, taxing children under 14 on part of their unearned income at their parent's top marginal rate, unless the tax at the child's marginal rate would be higher. TAMRA allowed parents to elect to include the unearned income of their children under 14 on their own returns.
