Yes, you can. You have the option to deduct either state income taxes paid or sales tax paid, but only if you itemize deductions.
If you do itemize deductions, you can enter them in the "Deductions and Credits" portion of "Federal Taxes" under "Estimates and other Taxes Paid".
By selecting "Other Taxes Paid" and scrolling down to the bottom of the screen, you should see "Balance Due on your 2015 State Taxes Paid in 2016".
