On Form 8615 line 15 says enter tax on amount on line 14 based on child's filing status. My line 14 amount is $1850 and the tax should be $186 but the program is calculating the tax as $468. Is the program calculating this incorrectly?

The point is to use the IRS Form Instructions worksheet to compare to how the tax program is using the data you input. That's why the IRS provides them; they allow you to follow the data flow to confirm what is happening.
For instance, maybe there is the Parents' tax rate to consider.
