2018 Tax Calculation Error in Schedule D Worksheet

Prior to May 16, 2019, the 2018 Schedule D worksheet in the instructions contained an error.  The IRS sent a correction to tax software partners, therefore returns filed after that date shouldn’t be affected.

The good news is that taxpayers do not need to file an amendment.  The IRS is reviewing all potentially impacted returns filed before 5/16, the correction was made.
