State Tax Deduction on Sch A

Line 19 of "The State and Local Tax Deduction Worksheet (State and Local refund allocated to 2017) is reducing my 2017 state tax deduction base on my 2016 State Tax Refund I applied to 2017. I took the standard deduction in 2016, so why is it reducing the 2017 itemized deductions for state taxes?
