It looks like this year (2014) I will have an AMT liability.My income is going to be about $220K this year, but about $170K next year.Because of my increased income, it looks like I'll be paying somewhere around $3K in AMT.From the experimenting I've been doing with tax program, it seems that if I pay my property taxes in 2015 instead of 2014 I'll be better off.The $6K of property taxes being late will result in a $600 late payment fee.But no change to my 2014 IRS bill because of AMT.Then that $6K will then be deductible in 2015's taxes, so I'll get a $1500 benefit around April 2016.Am I missing anything?It seems really really odd to have the feds putting giving me an incentive to not pay my property taxes on time.BTW - do I get to count the $600 late payment penalty as local taxes too?
