There are a few reasons your refund you expected is less than what you received from the IRS:
- Your refund may be different if you used the Refund Processing Service to pay your TurboTax Online fees. TurboTax fees plus the additional processing fee is deducted from your Federal Tax refund.
- It could be due to a refund offset.
- A positive or negative change in your refund can also be due to the IRS making a change to your tax return.
You will receive a letter from the IRS explaining the reason for the reduction. Please see this for more information:
If the reduction is for a state refund, it could also be due to a refund offset or a change made by your state taxation department. You will receive a notice in the mail.
You may also contact your state (expect a long wait time):
