Thanks for your feedback. I reviewed the 6251 instructions this morning. Although there are are some lines in the form I don’t even begin to understand, it looks like I /might/ be subject to AMT in the carryback year. RE: I took the standard deduction, which I see is excluded from AMTI.
I decided to seek professional help with this since I don’t fully understand it. I found a website that specializes in AMT and NOL+AMT guidance, and the guy that runs it offers assistance for a fee.
BTW, I also found a 2008 Treasury Inspector General audit report that addresses this very issue! Interesting read.
