I used Tax Slayer online and H&R Block’s tax refund estimator. They both gave me about a $ 200 refund for Federal. Tax Slayer said I owe about $ 115 for State.

Last year, I was a student for about 4 months and earned about 21,000. I got a Federal refund of $ 1,600 and even a small refund from the state (after having H&R Block compute everything).

Is it possible that my refund has decreased this dramatically compared to last year? Am I doing something wrong?
