The final payment for 2016 taxes owed came out of my checking account on 2/12. My 2017 tax refund (rec'd 2/14) was also reduced by this amount. How do I get that $ back?

The IRS should catch the double payment and issue you a refund.  You can also contact the IRS regarding the double payment for more information.

You can call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040; don’t select Option 1 for refund that will just take you to an automated response, instead:

- Choose Option 2 (Personal income tax)

- Then press 1 (Form, tax history, or payment)

- Press 4 (For all other questions)

- Press 2 (For all other questions)

- When it asks you to enter your SSN or EIN to access your account information, don’t enter anything.  After is asks twice, you will get another menu

- Press 2 for personal or individual tax questions, it should then connect you to a live person
