The taxes paid using Direct Pay, were they for taxes owed for 2016 or a prior tax year or were they for 2017 estimated taxes?

They were for 2017 estimated taxes. My funding as a graduate student does not allow withholding so I made a one-time payment at that time but wasn't sure what my final estimate would be.
