Why does the estimator give you a higher return than filing your taxes?

The estimator may be inaccurate or your tax return may be inaccurate. There are many sections of TurboTax that are not yet completed. If you have tried entering information into one of those sections, your return may not be accurate. Look in your Review section to see if any forms that you need are not yet available.
