W/out knowing a hell of a lot more no one can really answer your question, but at $55k you should probably be in a higher bracket than 15%, which is what it comes to based on your dad's calculations. But it is a close call. Turbo Tax will ask you a series of questions to determine if you should take the Standard Deduction or Itemize, and you can go from there. But if your dad is a CPA, I would just take his word for the refund--which to me seems generous given your income.
Don't believe everything you think
