This sentence explains that taxpayers and other kinds of people are paying tax. The 1999 acts just changed something in their way of making payments.

Option A - correct
The verb 'changed' as the best tense form, which is the past tense and the pronoun 'their' refers to the taxpayers, not the amount.

Option B - incorrect
The pronoun 'their' used in the sentence refers to 'amount' instead of taxpayers or large corporations.

Option C - incorrect
This sentence is wrong because it uses the present continuous tense 'is changing' to represent an event that has happened in the past. Also, the pronoun 'their' used refers to amount instead of taxpayers or large corporations.

Option D - incorrect
It is wrong because the sentence implies that the bill changed what people could do before the bill was passed. This is absolutely impossible.

Option E - incorrect
The verb tense 'changes' used is also wrong. The past tense of the verb 'change' is supposed to be used.
