You get a credit only for Federal Taxes for fgn taxes paid.  Not on your state returns.
in the 1099-div  section of the interview.  under the 1099-div there should be an amount in Box 6  note you will have to check a box that your 1099 has more than just these boxes to be able to input an amount in box 6.  You then take a federal deduction during the Deductions & Credits interview for Foreign taxes paid.
