I qualify to itemize deduction. Why isn't turbo tax add the mortgage interest amount to my itemized deduction amount?

As my total deductions are greater than $25,000, I qualify to use itemized deduction.  I have put in approximately $4000 as mortgage interest but the software does not add this amount to the itemized deduction total.   Note that the $4000 does correctly show in the "your 2018 deduction & Credit page" in the section Your Home. Help!!

Are you sure you have that much in deductions? Remember that your state and local taxes are capped at $10,000 this year. You can not deduct above that amount for state income tax, property tax, real estate tax, etc.

3.) In the search bar the pops up, type Schedule A 

You will then be able to see exactly what has been entered, where the limitations are, and which areas you might need to revisit and update if any.
