PY SDA was incorrect but can't override

Highlighted

Hello friends, long time no see

I'm working on a new client's 2019 return. (Yes, they're just now starting their 2019 return.) Their prior tax prep (for 2018) was H&R Block.

They had a new vehicle in 2018, and they're doing actual rather than standard. The vehicle cost was $28,838. H&R gave them an SDA of $18,000. When I enter that, I get the error "Line 33i is too large. It cannot exceed 50% of eligible basis."

Now, whether that is correct or not, that is the depreciation that they took in 2018. I can't say they only took $14k, if they took $18k. If they need to do an amendment for 2018, we can do that, but in the mean time, they took $18k in 2018. I should be able to enter that they took that amount. But it won't let me override the error. Any ideas?

TIA,

On the vehicle worksheet, Line 34a(2) should be NO.

That was it!

Not sure why the default is "yes," but you fixed it! Thanks.
