Calculating Alternative Minimum Tax Income

Posted by:

In calculating the Alternative Minimum Tax Income, the first step is to add certain adjustments to taxable income. These include:

  • Personal and dependent exemptions
  • The amount claimed for the standard deduction or, if itemized deductions were claimed, the following items
    1. Medical expenses deducted, not greater than 10% of AGI
    2. State and local tax deductions
    3. Real estate and property tax deductions
    4. Certain interest
    5. Most miscellaneous deductions

Itemized deductions for charitable contributions and casualty and theft loss are not added back in when calculating the Alternative Minimum Tax Income.
