Can I deduct taxes paid $2200 in Federal taxes (for 2017 Tax Year) on 4/15/2018 and over $400 (2017 Tax year) in for 2018 Tax year?

I had to pay into both the federal and state taxes (for 2017 taxes) in April 2018.   Can I deduct these on my 2018 return?  I used TurboTax 2017 to compile this.  I am using 2018 this year.

No, federal taxes paid is not a deduction unless they are payments towards the current year's tax.

If you are itemizing deductions, the $400 for state taxes go towards your state and local tax deduction.

1. You can deduct State taxes paid in 2018 on your 2018 Federal return.

2. A few states let you deduct 2018 Federal taxes paid on your 2018 State return.
