SpeleoFool: For the purposes of long-term planning, I'm interested in learning more about AMT--particularly, what triggers it and how it is figured--so that I can hopefully avoid an unpleasant tax hit by cashing in too many investments at one time.

For learning, there are two websites that have a lot to offer: www.fairmark.com has extensive information on tax matters, including a very thorough discussion of Alt Min Tax.

www.mystockoptions.com focuses, as the name implies, on Stock Options -- and your NQSOs are not an AMT issue, as you've already been told -- but MyStockOptions does include some extensive materials explaining AMT more fully, to the extent you want to delve into it.
