You only have to worry about AMT if you exercised the ISOs. The only way to get out of the AMT adjustment is to sell the ISO stock before the end of the year.

Otherwise, your AMT adjustment will be the difference between the option price and stock price on the date of exercises times the number of shares.

Sorry no loopholes there.

The only plus is if you do have to AMT tax it will create a minimum tax credit that you could use in the future.
