It sounds like the "results" page is showing only the penalty amount, not the income tax amount.   The penalty amount of $2,949 would be correct on a distribution of $29,490. 

 

The $8,008 in tax sounds about right for someone with a total income over $84,201 (single) or $168,401 (joint).  The total income would include the premature IRA distribution.
