I suggest comparing your 2016 tax return to your 2017 tax return line by line to see the differences. Start at line 1 and work your way through the tax return. Once you have found the differences, you can look into them further to see if there is something wrong that would explain the difference in your refund amount.

We're all a year older. Some deductions/credits (such as the Child Tax Credit) have age limits.

Or did you change your withholding for 2017?
