If your refund is short $1,400 then that is because you said you did not receive the 3rd stimulus payment and the IRS has records that show you were sent the 3rd stimulus payment so they removed the $1,400 Recovery Rebate Credit that was entered on Form 1040 Line 30.
Go to this IRS website for your tax account to see if the 3rd stimulus payment is entered - https://www.irs.gov/payments/your-online-account
If you checked your bank account in the March - May 2021 timeframe and there is not a $1,400 EIP3 payment from the IRS then go to this IRS website for how to start a trace on the payment - https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/questions-and-answers-about-the-third-economic-impact-payment-topic-j-p...
here is the problem with the 'free file' ; yes that is for simple returns.but when there is 'unemployment', TT no longer considers that a 'simple return'
look at this link and you can see what forms are included in "free file"
Unemployment (1099-G) has to go on Schedule 1, which is part of the Deluxe package and not the free file offering
