It appears my software doesn't compute an ATNOL carry

Customer Question

It appears my software doesn't compute an ATNOL carry forward in year one of a corporations existence. The developer says it's since AMT applies to no corporation in its first year. The only citation I see is IRC 55 where is say AMT tax in year 1 for a corporation is zero.

A corporation is exempt from AMT in its first year, so the developer is correct. The 4626 instructions are clear on the subject.

Please check those instructions, available as a pdf at:
