Are you trying to enter your estimated tax payments for your 2019 tax return? 

(We are currently in 2020 and the information to file your 2020 return will not be available until 2021.)


Assuming you are trying to enter your federal estimated tax payments you made for your 2019 return, you can enter those as follows:

  1. Click on the Deductions and Credits section under the Federal Tab 
  2. Select Estimates and Other Taxes Paid.  (If you do not see this, click on "See All Tax Breaks") 
  3. Select Estimated Tax Payments 
  4. You will then be able to enter any Federal estimated tax payments made as well as any State estimated taxes paid, if applicable
