AMT, not ATM

I am single, rent, and payed AMT for 2011. If I owned my own home and had a mortgage, would I have been able to deduct the interest, or is the fact that I payed AMT a sign that no further deductions were available to me? I have few deductions but itemize because my state tax alone is more than the standard deduction. You are not now, and will never be, my accountant.

What are some good allowable tax deductions under $1000 in Australia?

I have a small home based computer business in Australia and need some allowable tax deductions. I understand that assets such as office furniture, plant & equipment are immediately tax deductible (don't need to be depreciated) if they're under $1,000. What are some things I could buy for my home office to reduce my tax? Thanks in advance

I have donated about 11,400 to charity. I'm filing married filing jointly, so my standard donation is 10,900. I really don't have much in the way of other deductions. Should I use the 11,400 itemized deduction? Or use the 10,900 standard deduction and use the donations as deductions for next year?
