Do you mean add it to my property tax paid in 2017 as one lump sum?

Did you have a payment of property taxes shown on the Form 1098 from the lender?  Then enter those taxes paid in the Mortgage Interest section.
The payment of 2018 taxes in 2017 would be in the Property Taxes section.

No. I paid the tax directly to my town. The input section in Turbo Tax only allow $$ by year.

You enter the property taxes paid in 2017 in the box shown for 2017, even though the taxes were for tax year 2018.

I did the same thing you did, got a 1098 from lender of what was paid out of escrow and then I wrote a check in late December for taxes assessed (that would have been paid our of escrow in 2018) and added the two together and listed them as one sum in the property taxes paid on the home.
