You used Deluxe.
Deluxe is 59.99
State is also a separate 44.99 in all versions above the Free Edition
If you select to have the fees deducted from your refund there is an EXTRA 39.99 Refund Processing Service charge (44.99 for California)

You could have federal 59.99 + state 44.99 = 104.98
Or you could have 59.99+44.99+39.99 = 144.97 (149.97 Calif)
Plus any Sales Tax

How to see your fees

TurboTax Free Edition (and TurboTax Live Basic) are intended for taxpayers with very simple returns that can fit on the new 1040 form without any schedules.

If we detect that your tax situation requires expanded coverage, like deductions for owning a home or self-employment income, we'll prompt you to upgrade to a version that supports the forms you need so we can maximize your tax deductions and ensure you file an accurate return.

Depending on what your tax situation was last year, you might need to use new tax forms to claim the same deductions, credits, or forms of income. Some of the situations that are now in TurboTax Deluxe and TurboTax Live Deluxe, instead of in Free Edition, include:

·       Student loan interest deduction

·       Retirement savings contribution credit for 401(k) and IRA contributions

·       Education credits

·       Child & dependent care credit

Go here for more info on which forms are included in TurboTax Free Edition.
