Why is my State of VT refund so high this year?

I have never had a tax return so high in my life. I feel like if I go ahead and file (when you actually can in VT) that it has an error in it, and it will come back to bite me in the butt. 

I made 24,500 before taxes in 2017 and filed as Single ZERO. Someone in my office said that was what you should do if you would like to get a higher tax return at the end of the year. My VT refund is $7,100 so far. I know I entered all the info from my W2 correctly.

My W2 had 16 digit "verif. code" on it this year. 

Is it possible that my refund is a third of my income???

Start by carefully checking your data entry for any typos, especially commas and decimals. Look at the state taxes withheld on your W-2 in particular.
