Did you pay any state or local tax due in 2019 when you filed your 2018 tax return?
The Income Tax Paid entry represents the total income taxes you have paid and reported on your tax return for the current year. Typically, it is the sum of your federal tax withheld as reported in box 2 of your W-2 form, as well as the state and local taxes reported in boxes 17 and 19.
Also, if you had pension distributions reported on form 1099-R, it would include the amount in boxes 4, 12 and 15. You may have taxes withheld reported on other forms as well, and they would also be included in the Income Taxes Paid entry.
You may have paid in estimated taxes during the year, and the amounts you reported as being paid in the current year would also be included in the taxes paid entry.
