Federal Tax deduction paid more than actual amount

I filed my 2020 tax online using turbotax on May 15 2021.

My federal tax deduction was ~3810, but when i am using other tax calculator and providing the same information, then it is showing me ~2100. Also, when i contacted a different tax consultant, they also estimated my federal tax deduction to be ~2100.

I have provided exact same information at all places.

when i am using amendment option in turbotax online, it is still showing me ~3800.


How can i get the refund back from IRS? (~$1700) 

or how turbotax can help me in this situation?

don't have any idea what you are asking about.  what federal tax deduction are you asking about? we can't see your return.  try contacting support or post more information in this forum.

You should identify the form/schedule and line number that shows 3810 but you now think should be 2100.

Your post is confusing.
