Child and Dependent Care Credit in 2019 bug

I am having a 5000 Dependent care FSA through employer. In 2018, I qualified for $200 Child and Dependent Care Credit. In 2019, the system is giving me $1200, with the same answers.


I think turbo tax online 2019 has a bug that that enters $(5000) line 14 in Form 2441 as the whole DepCare FSA limit as 5000, which increases the amount of Dependent Care Credit to $6000 instead of $5000.


Please advise how to proceed.

There have been no such bug reports, unless it was just introduced in an update this weekend.  It is more likely that when you entered your W-2, You answered the forfeit question wrong. Tried deleting your W-2 and re-entering it so that your trigger the question again.
