Wait until you get the letter from the IRS explaining how they calculated the additional refund. You should get the letter two or three weeks after you got the refund.


If the difference was exactly $1,200 you might have claimed a $1,200 Recovery Rebate Credit that you were not entitled to. That could happen if you told TurboTax that you did not receive a $1,200 stimulus payment, but the IRS did send the $1,200 payment to you. Is there $1,200 on line 30 of the Form 1040 that you filed? But you won't know for sure what happened until you get the IRS letter.

There was not $1200 on line 30 on my 1040.  And it's not an even $1200 it was off, it is approximately 1200.

You will have to wait for the IRS letter to see what they did, then compare it to what TurboTax did.
