Where are you seeing the amounts?  What is the refund on you actual 1040 federal return line 20a?  Is it the 2,755?  At the end Turbo Tax just shows you the combined net amount of federal and state.  But you will get the full refund and need to pay state separately yourself.  The state tax due will NOT be deducted from your federal return.  So make sure it gets paid.

If your tax refund is lower than TurboTax quoted, it may be caused by a refund offset. This is when the government applies part or all of a taxpayer's refund towards the taxpayer's past-due income tax, child or spousal support, student loans, or state unemployment compensation debts. Also, if you pay state taxes, make sure you have not combined the amounts of your state and federal refunds because they are separate.
