Critical diagnostic #51719: have to check the box that says to allocate all mortgage interest and RE taxes as excess when claiming the std ded. Anyone else getting this?

My client took the standard deduction last year and still got a portion of the home office deduction for some of his RE taxes paid (he is self employed), but if I check this box, it limits it to zero (he has a loss and had a loss last year).

Yes. 

You need to look at the bottom line tax for with the box checked and without. It basically is a diagnostic warning that does not impact your ability to e-file (unlike the next warning in my image.) Basically a software trying to save our patooties, by making us aware of options and possibilities.
