My understanding is that had I paid this tax through withholding throughout the year or even as quaterly tax payments in 2001, I would not be subject to AMT. Is this correct?Had you paid it, through withholding or estimated tax payments, during 2001 it wouldn't be giving you AMT headaches for 2002. (Whether it would have been a problem for 2001 I don't know.)Lots of people with high state tax bills run into AMT problems since state taxes aren't a deduction under AMT. Lumping a large 2001 balance due with your 2002 ordinary withholding didn't help your situation.Phil MartiVITA Volunteer
