Use Tax (California form 540)

Turbo Tax requested I fix a few errors - one of these errors has something to do with Use Tax.   I think I place a zero in this box - but I'm not sure.  See the attached screen captures.

Use Tax (California form 540)

Enter 0 if there is no Use tax.

The use tax has been in effect in California since July 1, 1935. It applies to purchases of merchandise for use in California from out-of-state sellers and is similar to the sales tax paid on purchases you make in California. If you have not already paid all use tax due to the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration, you may be able to report and pay the use tax due on your state income tax return  CA Franchise Tax Board.

Do I put zero in the box?   Or, do I put something else in the box?
