I went through the Motley fool tax guide and I'm I'm a little worried about this "bargain element"(the difference between my exercise price and the fair market value of the stock at exercise date). This is considered a tax preference for AMT (Alternative Minimum Tax). While I would owe no regular tax on this bargain element, this could be a very large trigger for the AMT. This is only applicable for ISOs.1)I'm not sure what any of this means, can anyone help explain?2) how do I know if I qualify for the AMT3) any suggestion on avoiding AMT?
