Out of nowhere came a check from the treasury with a refund. I must have overpaid my taxes. How can that be? Did turbotax make an error? There is no additional paperwork, just a check. How would I ever find out what went wrong in my favor?
They will mail you a letter in a couple weeks. Some things to check. They may have paid you interest. They may have reduced a penalty on 1040 line 38. You may have entered some withholding wrong or missed entering an estimated payment or extension payment.
