Now in response to Bill's questions about my sanity :-)).

OK, now I wasn't quite THAT sharp!!

If I mailed a letter, must I sit tight and wait for the IRS response or could I call the IRS some day before getting the answer?

Yes, wait. Because otherwise you're just back to square one with the next person who answers the phone.

Oh, one more question. If the IRS agrees with me, will it mail a check or make another deposit based on our info on the 1040 form?

They will send a check.

Also, I don't think buying TT would have prompted an IRS clerk to notice my qualified dividends in my case.

If you had filed on paper, no, you're right.

My point was that if you use TT to file electronically, no data-entry error or ommission would be made by them (not that sort, anyway.) That data file you transmit would automatically be entered on the proper lines.
