Are the federal taxes supposed to be charged to my bank’s account if the amount was deducted from my refund

What do you mean by "deducted from my refund?"   If you thought that your federal tax due was being paid by a state refund, you misunderstood.

 

The “summary” given to you by TurboTax must have confused you.  That summary just nets out the difference between a refund you are getting and an amount you owe.   Or it adds two refunds or tax “due” amounts together.

 

 

The federal and state treasuries are completely separate from each other.  

 

Your state tax due cannot be paid from a federal refund.

 

And….your federal tax due cannot be paid from a state refund.  

 

Neither refund can be used to pay the amount due to the other one.

 

If you owe tax due, you have to pay it yourself by the filing deadline on April 15, 2024.

 

 

 If you have federal tax due you can pay by mailing your payment with the 1040V voucher, (which has the address printed on it, having the payment taken out of a designated bank account, or you can pay directly on the IRS website.

You must pay your state tax due using the state’s preferred method of receiving payment.  For most states that will be by making a payment to the state’s own tax website, or by mailing a check or money order.

Do you mean the Turbo Tax fees were suppose to be deducted from your federal refund?   Yes they can charge your bank account.  

 

If the IRS is taking too long to send your refund they will ask you to pay the fees, see  What happens if the IRS reduces my refund
