TurboTax doesn't believe no state income tax?

How does TurboTax figure the "Other income taxes" line? Or, how can I correct this?

I'm doing my taxes with TurboTax this year (my first time with TurboTax). I'm in the Deductions and Credits part, and I've double-checked everything. In the "Estimates and Other Taxes Paid" section is a line titled "Other Income Taxes." When I click to learn more, it is defined as state income tax.
I do not live in a state with state income tax. Instead, we take off the sales tax which is handled on another line. I selected "None of the above" and TurboTax entered a number. This number is exactly the number of federal withholding tax.
Now what? I get that I'm completing the Schedule A on this part, but I don't know how to get TurboTax to accept that my federal withholding was not state income tax (and state income withholding is not completed in the Federal Taxes section). I've googled and only found other people with the same question, but no answers.
