Can I deduct paid 2015 state income tax from my 2016 federal income tax

Yes, that would be a part of your itemized deductions, so, if you have enough itemized deductions to exceed your standard deduction, state tax paid in 2016 could be used.


You would find all the sources of state tax paid under 

Federal Taxes, 

Deductions and Credits,

Choose What I work On if you see it.  

If not, just scroll down to the Estimates and Other Taxes Paid area.  

You would go through both of the first two topics, Estimates  and then Other Taxes Paid
