The money you paid to the IRS for a previous year’s federal tax return is not deductible, so you do not enter it anywhere on your 2017 return.  If you paid taxes due in 2017 to your state or local government, you can enter that by going to Federal> Deductions and Credits> Estimates and Other Taxes Paid> Other Income Taxes.  You can enter the taxes you paid, but do not include any penalties or interest.

There are six states that allow you to enter the federal tax you paid on your state return--Alabama, Iowa. Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, and Oregon.  If you are filing in one of these states watch for the deduction when you prepare your state return.

If you paid a tax due to Hawaii in 2017 you can enter it on your 2017 tax return.  Please re-read the response.
