Where is the deduction to state taxes that were withheld for 2020?

It depends.

 

If your withholdings were made on your W-2 Form, you would enter the withholdings when you enter your information from your W-2 in the Income & Expenses section of the program under Job (W-2).  The state withholdings would be entered under the state taxes section for boxes 15-17.

 

State wage input

 

If the withholdings were on a 1099 form, you would enter them in the appropriate section.

 

If however, you made estimated tax payments during the year and need to enter those payments, you would enter them as follows in the Federal section of the program.

  1. Select Deductions & Credits 
  2. Scroll down through All Tax Breaks and select Estimates and Other Taxes Paid 
  3. Select Estimated Tax Payments 
  4. Select State estimated taxes for 2020
  5. Select Yes to indicate you did pay estimates for 2020
  6. Proceed to enter your payments as applicable
