 I do not know the exact reason that your state did not refund the amount that you were expecting to receive, but one common reason that could have resulted in your refund being lower than you expected, is that your refund was reduced, either to correct a calculation error or through a refund offset. You may wish to contact your State Department of Revenue to determine if they have offset your refund (kept some for a debt you may owe).  

Please see the following TurboTax FAQ and click your state to open their contact page.

My va tax refund was lower than what I was supposed to get by over $200 and I’m not sure why, there’s no explanation on the va return website.

In addition to what Heather14 posted above, please see the TurboTax FAQ below.

Why is my direct-deposited refund or check lower than the amount in TurboTax?

 

If you are referring to the IRS federal refund, you will receive a letter from them in the mail in a few weeks explaining the difference or if it is the State, it will come from your State.

TurboTax does not receive any updates from the IRS or the State once the refunds are accepted.

@smith49677 Only your state tax office can tell you why your refund is less then what you expected. Please see this Turbotax FAQ for information on how to contact them. https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/refund-status/help/how-do-i-track-my-state-refund/00/25571
