If no, at some point I should take this new bulb in the basement and hook it to the new dimmer with clip leads to test your idea. This'd be a half hour, max, but currently I'm doing the taxes and even with the tax course I took I am still pulling out my hair. My backup plan is Turbo Tax but the odds of me getting the same answers the first time around is close to zero.
