Why did my state tax get taken out of my checking account when it was already deducted by TurboTax when I filed?

My full return when I filed my taxes already had the state tax deducted to pay it. I received the correct amount of money from my tax return but I was still later charged for the same state taxes. I basically had $691 deducted from my return to cover the state tax. However another $691 was charged to my checking account for the same state taxes.

Turbo Tax just shows you the net of federal and state for your own info.  You will still get the full refund unless the tax authority keeps it.  You have to pay the balance due.  So make sure you pay the IRS or state.  TT will not pay the state from a Fed refund or visa versa. Said another way, You get the full refund, you pay the full balance due and TurboTax just tells you the total.

You misunderstood.

 

The “summary” given to you by TurboTax must have confused you.  That summary just nets out the difference between a refund you are getting and an amount you owe.   Or it adds two refunds or tax “due” amounts together.

 

 

The federal and state treasuries are completely separate from each other.  

 

Your state tax due cannot be paid from a federal refund.

 

And….your federal tax due cannot be paid from a state refund.  

 

Neither refund can be used to pay the amount due to the other one.
