    I'm sorry but no one at Turbotax can give you any information about your refund amount.  Only the IRS knows why they changed the amount.  They may have changed something on your return and will send you a letter within 2 weeks detailing the changes.  Sometimes they withhold a porion of your refund that came from a credit like EIC and will send you a letter asking for more detail.  Wait a couple days and call the IRS back again and they may show a letter being sent to you.
    • i called out the IRS yesterday,, and they said, that they been released an amount $1112 federal + $190 state
      total is $1,302

      and i ask them if i owe them any thing, and they say nothing.
      and i ask them where the problems coming from... they said its from my tax preparer which is turbotax.
      and i called the turbotax customer service,, i waited for 15 long mins for them to answer. my question.
      and i tell them that its not on the IRS. and the guy said, i must call the irs because the problem is not from turbotax.



      the total amount i recieved is $660
      lets say the total payments for using turbotax is 160.

      482 <<<<<<< this is the amount im missing

    I'm not sure what all those numbers are, but Turbotax has absolutely nothing to do with your refund.  We don't receive it and the IRS does not communicate anything about it to us.  Are youy sure you're just looking at your federal refund and not including the state?  There's also something wrong with what the IRS rep told you because they have nothing to do with your state refund.  That comes directly fromthe state.  The IRS doesn't "release" it anywhere
    • im just having problem getting the rest of my refund from federal.
      they say, ill get my money on feb 1 which i did.
      but the problem is, they only deposit half of it.
      is it there is just some delayed depositing my money to my turbotax card?

      thank you verry much
    • Check your return.  Maybe you put down to apply part of it to next year.  Check 1040 line 75 or 1040A line 44

      Also you get the federal and state refunds separately.  And we don't understand what your numbers are.
    • Same here Irs released 2900 to me turbo only deposited 1090 what the hell is going on.
    • I only received half of my refund today. What is going on?
    • I only got half as well. What is going on?
    Turbotax does not receive your refund at all.  If you had your fees withheld from your federal refund, call the bank that withdrew your fees before dpositing the balance in your account, but only after you've called the IRS.  You can find a contact number at sbbt.com.  If you diud not have your fees withheld from your refund, then the deposit info is only known byt he IRS and oyur own bacl.
    • The number for IRS on page 1 of my Turbotax return is an automated service and when it has finished its speil you get disconnected.
       I see a bunch or Turbotax users asking "why have I received only half of the tax refund my Turbotax return says I am going to get?" Don't say you dont know. Your program calculated the result. If your program is "100%" correct why am I not getting the 100% refund ?

    • I only recieved half as well.  Turbo tax is full of shit.
    • My refund was deposited today and I was $4000 short.  This is some BS!!
    • It is NOT due to TurboTax ! The IRS is doing this to a lot of people I know. They only received half their refund that was deposited into their accounts. My cousin asked me about it so I've been looking everywhere for answers and it led me here. The IRS needs to put a notice out about this because no one knows why they are only receiving half their refunds at this time. Wth.
    that happen to me too!!!
      This happened to me too! My refund was $1898 shorter than what I expected. I called the irs and was told that my EIC credit was adjusted due to an error on my taxes. I did receive a letter in the mail about it and I had to call the irs to verify the information. Once I verified the info, a credit of $1898 was direct deposited into my account a few days later.
      • Where did you find the phone number? I don't know what number to call to get a hold of the irs
      • IRS 1-800-829-1040
      You will all receive letters from the IRS explaining the change they made.  Most likely they decided to withhold part of your refund for some kind of credit until you provide furtherr documentation to prove you are eligible for it.

        People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

        1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
        2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
        3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
        4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
        5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
