No, you misunderstood.  That's not possible.  You might have had the Turbo Tax fees deducted from your refund.

 

The state tax can not be deducted from the federal refund.  NEVER.  You can only have the Turbo Tax fees deducted.  You will still get the full federal refund minus any fees you had deducted.  Turbo Tax just shows you a screen at the end showing the Net amount of federal and state combined.  But it is just for your own info.  You do still have to pay the state yourself separately.   See,

Check the printout or PDF of your return; look for the state cover sheet with the Turbotax logo.  If you owed tax, it will show the payment information and how/when you decided to pay.  Read the state payment instructions carefully since most states cannot be paid from within the TT system and requires additional steps.

Your only proof of payment is your bank statement or credit card showing the payment coming out.  Turbo Tax only passes your bank account number to the state for the state to take it out of your account.  But most states do not let you pay by Direct Debit so you have to mail in a check or go directly to the state's website to pay.

how did you have TurboTax do that, since that can't be done.?

Now you must pay, a year late.

Sorry only the Turbo Tax Fees can be deducted from a federal refund.  Not a state tax due.  Federal and state are completely separate.  Did you read that link I posted?  Turbo Tax only shows you the net amount of federal and state combined but that is only for your own info.

Sorry, but they do NOT do that.    The ONLY thing that can be paid from your Federal refund is your TurboTax fees (what TurboTax charges for the use of the software), any *tax* owed, whether Federal, State or Local, must be paid by you using other means, such as check, credit card, direct debit to checking account, directly to the taxing authority through their web site, etc.
