Sorry, I misread your OP. On the 1098, "interest received" means received by the 1098 issuer, not by you.

So the questions are:

- Is home equity loan interest deductible? (I'll leave this for the experts to answer.)

- Are you itemizing or taking the standard deduction? If you're taking the standard deduction, would the $1724 bump up your itemized deductions to the point it would be better to itemize?
Because if you'd be taking the standard deduction in either event, then the 1098 makes no difference, and you'd be better off not amending.

TT Delux online and I don't see a way to access the form again...

Oof. TT does push people to use their online version. Every year I have to dig deeper when buying it in order to download it.
