Turbo tax indicated that my refund will be $2700, But IRS gave me a $900. (after 10,200 unemployment tax break it's a $4700) What should I do?

I filed my tax report on January 30th,
It should be receive a tax return on March 5th,
but It was updated around March 23,
Turbotax indicated that my refund will be $2700,
But IRS said "We made changes to your tax return that changed the amount of your refund"
And that amount is $900.
I was able to work two days a week while receiving unemployment benefits,
and I paid all taxes when receiving unemployment benefits,
So, I think 900 dollars doesn't make sense.
Funny thing is due to the 10,200 unemployment tax break,
My refund amount offered by Turbotax has risen to $4700.
What should I do?
I filed my taxes very honestly.

Compare your tax return to the IRS adjusted tax return that is printed on the letter you received to see why the refund amount is different. See Why is My Tax Refund Not What I Expected?

 

The letter you received from the IRS should have contact information. You could disagree with the letter and reply to them to state why you think the $4700 is correct.
