It depends.  If you filed the federal tax return in 2015 but the tax you paid in 2017 was for income that was not included in 2015 (because it was not included or you had a credit/deduction reduced) you can- but it can only be the tax amount, not the penalty or interest (if any) that was included in your payment.
