Sales tax I could have deducted?

In TT2017 deluxe under Federal>wages and Income>other income> state and local,  TT asks me  to: "enter the 2016 general sales tax you COULD have deducted."  I am stuck on the word COULD because, technically, I could have deducted it, but I itemized in 2016 instead of taking the standard deduction.

However, the question asks if I could, not if I did.  so am i supposed to enter this?thanks!
