A Motley Fool member pointed out that this software mistakenly adds in qualified dividends as ordinary income. I looked at my 2011 Form 1040 and sure enough! He is right!

I overpaid the 2011 Federal Income tax based on this mistake. I still haven't checked previous years.

How can I re-submit my 2011 income tax with a recalculated income? What is the correct way to recalculate Form 1040 L
