Bill, you have been most helpful. Thank you for the confirmation that TT calculated the numbers correctly.

As it happens, I had quite a large short term capital gain which was more than enough to cover the interest deduction. I think in this case there is no need to do the alternative calculations you suggest. Even if I wanted to do it (say, for a future year) where do I make this decision? TT did not ask me, unless I missed it, and used the default option.
