Amazon took 50% of my June royalties

Hello, I received this email from Amazon:

My royalties for June is: 28.20$

and i know Amazon will take 30% of my royalties (28.20$) so i should take 19.47$, but Amazon said that my earning BEFORE taxes are 20.46$ !! So they will take 30% from this 20.46$ which means i take 14.32$ !! So instead of taking 30% of my royalties they take 50.78% i know 28$ is nothing but if you do this to me with 28$ then you will do the same if i have 20000$ !!

Thank you for your question. We are aware that some Content Creators have received remittance emails showing a June 2018 royalty amount lower than that displayed on the Merch portal. If this applies to you, expect an additional remittance email early next week. The correct total payment will be delivered at approximately the end of the month and may be split into two separate payments.

But it should display 19.47$ on Merch portal not in the email right?

There’s no excuse for this I just noticed that all the earnings I made disappeared and I didnt do anything wrong! Why were all the earnings taken without any explanation I would like to know!!!!
