Is there a way to avoid the critical diagnostic "Federal Form 8990 is included in draft form" in ProConnect?

The CARES Act increased the section 163(j) 30% ATI limitation to 50%, but form 8990 from irs.gov is still revision 12-2019 with 30% and I don't see any indication that IRS will update this form.  Revenue Procedure 2020-22 allows taxpayers to elect to use 30% by filing a tax return with the 30% ATI limitation, so form 8990 rev. 12-2019 can be used as a final form for taxpayers making this election.  However, PTO issues a critical diagnostic indicating form 8990 is in draft form.  I'd like to e-file a return with the 30% ATI limitation using form 8990 that PTO considers "draft" as a final form to make this election.  Is there a way to avoid the critical diagnostic?  It looks like I can e-file with the diagnostic, but the "draft" form is valid in this circumstance and I'd like to eliminate the critical diagnostic and not just ignore it if possible.

Thank you for the link!

I see some good information about form 8990, but I don't see a way around the critical diagnostic in the link.

Did you see the announcement yesterday, that *today's* update is supposed remove F 8990 from draft status?

I'm downloading an update, right now.  We'll see it it fixed the F 8990 problem.

Thank you for the info about the update!

I'm still getting the critical diagnostic in ProConnect today, but I'll try again tomorrow.  I see the Lacerte announcement for the final form to be released today, and hopefully PTO will be updated also.

Sorry, I missed that you use PTO.  I use Lacerte.  Evidently, it *is* fixed - I have to reboot to install the update & I'm in the middle of something.
