Depending on the wording on the question you are seeing it could be two different things -

If it says federal withholding payments - those are the withholdings from your W2 / paychecks

If it says tax payments - it's referring to direct payments made to the IRS such as estimated tax payments during 2018 (i.e. if you are self-employed you may have made four quarterly estimated payments to the IRS) or if you had a refund last year and applied it to this year.  What that isn't referring to is if you owed taxes from last years return and paid the IRS in April - that doesn't get entered.
