Did you claim her on your return?  And she claimed herself?  Yes that can make a difference in her refund.  Did the IRS say what Credits she didn't get?  Like she can't take the education credit or the EIC.  How much income did she have?  She can only get back from withholding taken out.

I am hoping that Congress does something for people in her situation.  Being able to be claimed by another person also prevents her from receiving a stimulus check.  I feel it is unfair to many college age people and expected to see that changed in 2020.  I am sorry that this situation exists.
