Using IRS Free Fillable Forms. Whether the problem lies in that software or the IRS software that screens what they submit electronically is the only issue.On further examination it definitely is a 'not ready for prime time' problem. Line 2(h) of Form 8949 is calulated by the software. The total gain or loss is then automatically entered into Line 9(h) of Schedule D. Box E is checked on both forms. So there is no way there could actually be a difference in the amounts on the forms.In the case of the other issue, the entire refund area of the 1040 is free of any entries, including direct payment routing boxes. No need to put routing there. I owe tax and direct debit info goes on the electronic signature and transmittal form, not the 1040. At least the software did most of the math and I can print out the return. I'm definitely going back to the future and filing by mail. Then I'm going south to get out of this cold and snow.PS - IRS had both live chat and an email method of resolving these issues but I no longer see it any place. Maybe there are so many issues they've shut it down?
