My wife and I have stock options which we would like to exercise. Is the AMT a lower percentage for smaller amounts versus larger amounts? In other words, would it be less expensive if we cashed in let's say $100k per year, over five years, versus $500k all in one year? Is the AMT a set percentage regardless of amount therefore we should be indifferent?
