Sorry for the confusion in my original post!!

What originally appeared to be a $800 refund transitioned into a tax due payment of $600 on the amended return -- a difference of $1400!!!!! Ouch!

The error came about from a medical deduction of approximately $6000 that was later seen to be only $2500. If anyone can tell me how to contact the IRS (a human) by phone I would appreciate it. I would prefer not to have to pay interest on the $800 check I received from the government.
