If your 2019 gross income was more the $4,200 then she cannot claim you.  If she did then see needs to amend and remove you.

My return was a little over 1000 but I roughly made 22,000 for the year. I just don’t want to be in trouble for anything. But she only gave me 500 from my return.

If you are 22 and not a full-time student and earned $22,000 then NOBODY can claim you as a dependent.

 

If your  mother does not amend to remove you and pay any additional that that she owes the she can expect an IRS audit in about 1-2 years and a big bill for the back tax plus a lot of penalties and interest. 

 

Since you are required to file a tax return the IRS will match your SSN with her return but that takes a year or two.  She needs to fix it now before then IRS figures it out.
