Can you claim an AMT credit? 

That's impossible for anyone here to say as the ability to claim an AMT credit is always a "facts and circumstances" situation and nobody here knows your particular facts and circumstances.  If you're not subject to the AMT in 2018 - which might be the case given the tax law changes - then you do have a chance here of getting an AMT credit.

You'll simply have to work through the Form 6251 and Form 8801 interviews to find out, assuming you've been using TurboTax all along since 2016.  If you haven't used TurboTax all along but have those income tax returns available to you then this might be the year to get competent local help in preparing your 2018 income tax return.
