Techncially, that's not correct
...


While technically you are likely correct, I don't really care. What's important to me is if I sell stock netting $1k, how much more tax will I pay? But then I think you understand that.

FWIW, I think AMT has to go; I don't mind paying taxes, I just think it's ridiculous how AMT complicates estimating your taxes.
