Dad appears to have under-reported income in 2001.
He skimmed right by line 41 - Alternative Minimum tax, as he had never "qualified" before.

1) How does one obtain "old" forms? Specifically, Form 6251 and the related instructions for the year 2001.

Thanks so much, 11

If you can't get it through www.irs.gov try your local library.

I reply:

Did he under-report his income or his tax liability? If it's merely the latter, then you might consider letting matters slide. From your description, your father made a good faith mistake in calculating his tax liability. If this is the case, I would expect that the statute of limitations for the IRS to complain would run this April, and as far as I know, taxpayers have no obligation to correct mistakes on their original returns that were made in good faith. --Bob
