Maybe you selected that option by mistake.

To add, change or delete a current year federal tax refund to next year's taxes before you file your tax return -

  • Click on Federal Taxes (Personal using Home and Business)
  • Click on Other Tax Situations
  • Under Additional Tax Payments
  • On Apply Refund to Next Year, click on the start or update button

Or enter apply federal refund to next year in the Search box located in the upper right of the program screen.  Click on Jump to apply federal refund to next year

The amount applied to next years taxes will be shown on Form 1040 Line 77, Form 1040A Line 49

Why did you make that election ?   You had to check that box ... so if you have not yet filed you can still change your election ...
