Turbo tax is giving me about a $500 break in taxes if I use their figure. According to the tax table I should be paying more.

I reply:

Is any of your income entitled to long-term capital gains treatment? If so, then you have to correct for that before going to the tables, and that could easily account for the difference.

Kudos to you for using your brain to double-check the software. --Bob
