For some reason my state was deposit and is only 43 dollars and was supposed to be 391. I payed for the taxes to get done out of my return but they took it from the fed.

There could be several reasons why you received less than you expected. To find out if you had a FMS offset that affected your tax refund you can call 1-800-304-3107.  Additionally, You may want to contact your State's Department of Revenue.

Please see FAQ, which provides links to State's Department of Revenue:

See this IRS website for refund FAQ's - http://www.irs.gov/Refunds/Tax-Season-Refund-Frequently-Asked-Questions

Why is my refund different than the amount reflected on the tax return I filed?

If you owe past-due federal tax, state income tax, state unemployment compensation debts, child support, spousal support, or certain federal nontax debts, such as student loans, all or part of your refund may be used (offset) to pay the past-due amount. Offsets for federal taxes are made by the IRS. All other offsets are made by the Treasury Department's Bureau of Fiscal Services (BFS)(Formerly the Financial Management Service or FMS). For federal tax offsets, you will receive a notice from the IRS. For all other offsets, you will receive a notice from BFS. To find out if you may have an offset or if you have any questions about it, contact the agency to which you owe the debt. See Tax Topic 203 for more information about refund offsets.

Another reason your refund amount may be different is if the IRS made changes to your tax return that changed your refund amount. In this case you will get a notice in the mail from us explaining the changes.
