We cannot see your tax return.    Was any of your income from self-employment?  If so you have to pay self-employment tax for Social Security and Medicare in addition to the ordinary income tax.

Thanks. Self Employed net income less than $400 no need to pay SE Tax, there was no SE tax involved, what other reason could be for this more than $100 different? I used another version of of Turbo Tax(CD, not online) , it showed less tax same with the Table.

Again--we cannot see your return or your screen.  Since you have desktop software, switch to Forms mode and look at the forms.

Sorry no one can contact you.  Please post something. You don't have to give any personal details.  It may be a known bug or we can explain it.  What line on your return looks wrong?

 

If you found a bug you can send in a sanitized copy of your return for them to check it.  You only post a 6 digit token number and the moderator can retrieve it.  It has nothing personal in it.

 Did I read right that you did Online and got the error but the CD program was what you expected?  Then you entered something different in Online or answered a question wrong.  Online and Desktop should be the same.  Compare them line by line.  Maybe you got some kind of penalty like for health ins or a 10% Early Withdrawal Penalty.  You might have even entered your personal info wrong like birthdate.  That can affect many calculations.

 

Do you have any investments? If you have schedule D there was a IRS error early in the year.  IRS info on Schedule D changes (after May 15, 2019)
