Thanks for the prompt response.

You are right, I was always the last kid picked for a team, at least in elementary school.

This is for 2010 taxes filed in 2011. Somehow I read the wrong number on the outside of the file folder when entering the amounts paid.

Lesson learned; always go to the check register to compare the entries to the tax program.

Neither of us can remember a bill for the $207. As Horace said, "bonus dormitat Homerus" (even Homer nods.) That said, we'll follow your suggestion to let the dust settle so we can all see more clearly.
