In the process of preparing my Georgia 2005 return, I discovered that
Turbotax doesn't include all calculations in the "printed copy for my
records" (even when I printed all worksheets and details). The Georgia

did the appropriate calculation to subtract the sales tax and add the
Georgia income tax.

screen, the calculation showed up on the Georgia 500 form. On anything
printed it didn't show up. The onscreen version of the form had several
additional lines that were not on the printed form! It was also
