In side by side form view I found the problems: slight differences in charitable deductions and failure to grab $123 in foreign tax credit on TT. I now have them at $2 off and probably won't bother ferreting out the difference. I am inclined to stick with TT for the official filing since I like the way it downloads all my Vanguard data. I may continue using two apps since that does result in a fair amount of error checking. Still haven't done the multi-state piece since DW's state tax report won't be available for a week.
