I dont understand how my husband made more money this year and we"re getting less back than we did last year?

'Made more money' usually equals 'owes more tax', so you actually just answered your own question! 

You may have gone up into a higher tax bracket, too.  Your husband might want to check his W-4 Withholding and adjust that amount.

It's always good to contribute more to a company retirement plan to lower your taxable income, if you are eligible to do so.

Here's some additional info:
