Please let me know if you require further information or clarification. Thank you and best regards.
Please let me know if you have reviewed the information I forwarded and if you have any follow-up questions.
Thank you for your response. The first reference you sited is dated October 2000. I know there were some changes made after that regarding rehabilitation credit in 2008.

Am I understanding your answer correctly?
I included as many references as I could for your review. The main point is that you can utilize Form 3800 as I stated in my previous answer, and you can offset the AMT with the credit. You are understanding my answer correctly.
Thank you and best regards.
