Oh I am a fool, little "f". I typed options by mistake, I meant stock purchase (from my employer). I will have held them for a year shortly, and since I know all about how AMT shafts me with regards to my options, I was wondering whether these options that I own will be subject to AMT if the income/ratio puts me over the limit.

I suppose another way to ask this is, if I lived only on capital gains income (i.e. selling shares where the gain is only subject to capital gains tax), would I ever have to pay AMT?
