In 2010 I took the advantage of the Roth IRA income exemption

This answer was rated:

In 2010 I took the advantage of the Roth IRA income exemption to create a ROTH. The tax is payable 50% in 2011 and 50% in 2012. The trouble is that the 2012 income is triggering an AMT? Is that correct? Is this income subject to the AMT, like anything else or can I deduct it?
Hi Kenneth and welcome to JustAnswer:

The income from conversion is ordinary income and cannot be excluded for AMT purposes. For whatever reason, income in excess of the AMT exclusion, higher itemized deductions for taxes, etc. you may be subject to AMT.
