What help you need?   You say you owed and had to pay---it is possible that you did not have enough withheld from your paychecks.   You can use the W-4 estimating tool to help you prepare a new W-4 for your employer to have more tax withheld.

And....if you want to compare results--use TurboTax software to prepare a 2023 return but do not try to file it--it would be impossible to file since you have already filed---but do not register or pay the TT fees.  Just use the software to see if you get the same result you got using the other software on the IRS site.
