Federal taxes paid or refunds of the same are not entered anywhere on a federal income tax return.  There are a couple of state's that will allow the deduction ... look for that in the state interview if your state allows it.

When you filed 2018 did you apply the refund to 2019?  Did you enter it on 1040 line 21?  

 

If it didn't transfer over from last year then enter a refund from last year that you applied to this year here.   BUT first make sure it's not already there.  You don't want to apply it twice.

Just to make sure.....you had your 2018 refund applies to 2019 as an estimated payment?  Not that you just didn't get your refund, like they kept it for something else or never sent it or changed your 2018 return.
