I was updating my tax planning worksheet this morning.
My wife and I file jointly, already submitted using Taxact.
Without going into too much detail, our marginal tax rate is 22%.
I verified that I'm using the 2019 tax tables.
For some reason, the tax (1040 line 12b) from Taxact is coming out $94 lower than I expect it to be.
The IRS tax table and my own calculations in my spreadsheet appear to agree with each other.

Anyone else experience this?
I allow for the possibility that I could be doing something wrong, but the steps from line 11b to 12b seem pretty straightforward.
