Online Turbotax appears not to provide an opportunity to enter amounts I paid throughout 2019.

My question has either been misunderstood or I have stated it poorly. I paid Estimated Minnesota State Income Tax in 2019. Form M1 of the 2019 Minnesota Tax form provides a place (line 25) for that amount to be entered. But the online turbotax version of the 2019 Minnesota Tax program does NOT provide for entering a value for that line and consequently computes the tax due for 2019 as though no estimated payments have been made.
