Why does refund amount go down instead of up?

I started in real estate in Oct and have added Realtor to the self employed income section. I have no income from RE for the year. I do have start up costs (school, license, association fees etc) and when I enter them my refund amount goes down instead of up. Shouldn't that be just the opposite?
