If your balance due increased when you entered your Roth IRA contributions, that probably indicates that you have exceeded the contribution limit for Roth IRAs based on your income and the contribution is being taxed as an excess contribution.
Go back through the section of your return where you entered the Roth contributions and be sure to go through each screen. TurboTax will indicate if you have an excess contribution that needs to be removed.

@Qdiddy-P Maxing out your 401K does not effect your ability to contribute to a Roth. You are income limited, however, so your income must be below $125,000 ($198,000 if married filing joint) for 2021.

Thank you for the response! I was able to make it through the interview questions and learned my combined income was over the threshold. (I guess that's a good problem). In order to avoid a penalty, I'm going to recharacterize the Roth IRA to a stock account that I originally transferred it over from.
