Why does the amount from Form 8959 not appear on Line 62 of Form 1040, added to the amount from Form 8960? Only the amount from Form 8960 is listed and its box checked.

This turned out to be a misunderstanding on our part.   The amount shown on Form 8959 was not what we owed, to be transferred to Line 62 of Form 1040, but what we overpaid, which was accounted for on a subsequent line on Form 1040.  Sorry for the mixup.

Line 18 from your Form 8959 should flow to your Form 1040, Line 62.   

If you have an amount on Line 24 of Form 8959, this amount should flow to your Form 1040 Line 64. 

If you have an amount on Line 18 of your Form 8959 but it is not flowing to your Form 1040, Line 62, I would need to request a diagnostic copy of your Tax Return to look into the issue further.  Please go to your return and click on           tax tools>>tools>>share file with agent. Then share the code with me.
