I discovered a mistake on my 2018 Estimated Tax worksheet.

Customer Question
I discovered a mistake...

I discovered a mistake on my 2018 Estimated Tax worksheet. My numbers in 2017 are not much different from 2016, so I was surprised when TaxAct said my estimated tax would be over $1,000 more per payment for 2018. I found a mistake on the TaxAct worksheet of item 14 b

Accountant's Assistant: The Financial Software Technician will know how to help. Is there anything else the Financial Software Technician should be aware of?

I can put the correct figures following the questions TaxAct asks on the form, but they should be aware that their calculations are incorrect, specifically with item 14 b

I am attempting to send you a copy of the 2018 Estimated Tax Worksheet so you can see the mistake (by TaxAct) in the calculations (specifically 14 b)... I am having some difficulty! I can figure the calculation necessary myself, only need to let TaxAct know there is something wrong with their calculation.
