I put in a business expense but my "federal tax due" rose

Whenever you enter your business expenses this reduces your taxable income and certain refund credits are based on the amount of taxable income that you have (for example: earned income credit and child tax credit).  Therefore by putting in deductions such as business expenses you are reducing your taxable income this results in a reduced credit and that results in your refund going down and your tax liability going up.
