Where can you enter the >2% AGI investment advisory fees so they carry to the 8960

Level 1

I have greater than 2% of AGI Section 68 investment fees. Of course, can't deduct on A for as long as Trump changes stay. But the 8960 form itself has lines for such. Why would it have lines if it wasn't permitted for investment income tax?

I get an error message when I plug into part 3 line 3 of 8960 worksheet. It says line should be blank.

Anyone have this sorted out?

When all else fails, read the instructions.
