At what point does the average taxable income reach for a single senior before AMT kicks in?

I know conventional wisdom says don't pay off the mortgage because of the tax deduction.

that may be the conventional wisdom, but sounds (to me) like what one of the regulars here would call "letting the Tax Bird wag the Life Lion"

.. personally i use the Sleep Test on 'paying off the mortgage' ..

but the better answer is "what AJ said"
