Is the $800 refund also an approximation?

Yes -- the actual refund was $806!!

I am having trouble understanding why what I have presented seems to be so confusing!! Would it help if I sent you copies of both my original 1040 and the 1040X????

Column A Column B Column C
Orig. Amt Net Change Correct Amt
Line 10 4939 540 5479
Line 11 5748 0 5748 (Fed Tax Withheld)
Line 16 5748

Sorry the columns don't show up the way I typed them due to spacing. The numbers are correct and directly off the 1040X. I don't know how else to present the information.
Originally I calculated a tax due of $4,939 and tax withheld of $5,748 -- resulting in a refund due of $806.

If you give me an email address I can forward a "snapshot" of the 1040X.
