Where does TT allow me to enter federal income tax refund?

My wife and I were married last year and are filing a joint return this year.

My turbo tax program imported my 2019 information, however, my wife had received a federal tax refund last year and I am not sure where TT prompts me to enter that information?

Appreciate the help.

Thanks in advance

A federal tax refund is not entered on a federal tax return.

I guess that amount is only entered on the state income tax filings?

A few states like Alabama, Iowa and Louisiana allow you to deduct federal income taxes on their state tax return. If you needed to enter your federal tax refund in your state return as it would represent a reduction of the deduction you took for it on your previous year tax return, you would be prompted to enter it when you are working on your state tax return in TurboTax.
