See this IRS website for federal tax refund FAQ's - https://www.irs.gov/refunds/tax-season-refund-frequently-asked-questions

 

Why is my refund different than the amount on the tax return I filed?
All or part of your refund may have been used (offset) to pay off past-due federal tax, state income tax, state unemployment compensation debts, child support, spousal support, or other federal nontax debts, such as student loans. To find out if you may have an offset or if you have questions about an offset, contact the agency to which you owe the debt.

We also may have changed your refund amount because we made changes to your tax return. You’ll get a notice explaining the changesWhere’s My Refund? will reflect the reasons for the refund offset when it relates to a change in your tax return.

Tax Topic 203 - Refund Offsets for Unpaid Child Support, Certain Federal and State Debts, and Unempl... has more information about refund offsets.

Do you owe any past tax debt, or student loans? Depending upon your state, it's also possible for your refund to be offset to pay other debts also. Regardless, if your refund was offset, you'll receive a letter from the IRS stating why.

Those are simply the numbers shown after TurboTax finishes calculating your estimated refund. They do not have access to information regarding any kind of offset that may be applied to your refund, so the amount shown wouldn't reflect that.
