Steve, your post upset me because I have used HRB software for several years.

I opened my 2011 tax and Line 22 showed that Total Income included all Ordinary Dividends but not Qualified Dividends.

However, I have just finished recalculating the tax "using a pencil and paper" (actually a spreadsheet). The HRB program did calculate the tax correctly, taking the lower tax rate on Ordinary Dividends and Long-term Capital Gains. I was also able to take a tax credit for a foreign corporation.

Whew!

I will double-check it for 2012, but 2011 looks OK.

Wendy
