I remembered that you have to file a Schedule D unless your only cap gains were from box 3 of 1099-DIVs. I just checked the instructions from 1040, line 13, and that's correct. So if you entered information from a 1099-B, you do need to file a Schedule D.

You may want to complete the return and see if TaxACT changes its mind. If not, contact their tech support, who I have thus far found to be quick and very helpful.

P.S. Also check if the "if not required, check here" box is checked on 1040 line 13. Again, it shouldn't be.
