AMT and suspended losses

Highlighted

Client sold a rental property with about $64k of suspended losses. That amount is flowing to the 6251 line 2m "passive activities (difference between AMT and regular tax income or loss)" even though there is no difference in the loss or the depreciation between regular and AMT. It's adding about $8k of AMT to the return. Is this proper?

 

Thanks for any guidance,

No. If the AMT suspended losses = the Regular Tax suspended losses there should be no difference.

Check what is in the software for AMT suspended passive losses.

Thanks, I found the error the Schedule E worksheet, where the suspended loss was not indicated in the AMT column.
