Why did my refund go down 800 dollars after i filed

It could be due to a couple of reasons.The most common reason for this is a refund offset.  All or part of a taxpayers refund may have been used (offset) to pay off past-due federal tax, state income tax, state unemployment compensation debts, child support, spousal support, or other federal non-tax debts, such as student loans. Taxpayers may also see a change in their refund amount because the IRS made a change to their tax return. You will receive a letter in the mail from the IRS..

If this reduction was on a state tax return, it could also be due to an offset as well or an adjustment to your tax return by the state. You will receive a letter in the mail.

You may also contact your state (expect a long wait time):
