The following includes answers to common questions about Form 6251.

I am not sure how UltraTax CS calculates lines 17, 18, 19, and 20 on Form 6251. Does UltraTax CS provide detail for these amounts?

My client has an AMT passive farm loss, but none is reported on the passive line 19 statement or the form. Why is the regular passive farm loss reported but not the AMT loss?

Where do I enter the amount for Form 6251, line 10?

Where do I enter data for Form 6251, line 11: Alternative tax net operating loss deduction?
