Just As I Thought

Dear Turbotax:

This is just a note to let you in on a mathematical fact: on the schedule C, line 29 ($5,522) minus line 30 ($0) equals line 31: $5,522. Not $1,205, as your software seems to think.
I can understand how this bug slipped through, as I missed it myself — until the IRS wrote me a nice letter informing me that no, I wasn’t going to get $900 back, but that in fact, I owed them $700 instead.
Just thought you’d like to know.

Hugs,
Gene Cowan
