Rental Property: Switching from "Use IRS Method" to "Use Tax Court Method." When I click on Use Tax Court Method nothing happens. It won't change. How do I do this?

I'm on the "Allocating Interest and Taxes" page for a rental property. I can click on the Tax Court Method button but it doesn't change anything. When I leave the page and come back it's gone back to the IRS Method.  What do I do to make it change to Use the Tax Court Method?

It may be the same number.

 

The Tax Court method uses the ratio of days rented divided by the number of days in the year.

The IRS method uses the ration of days rented divided by the total days used (rental days + personal days).

Thanks for responding.  It's not the same.  Total days use was 108.  Total days rented was 99.  Plus, even after clicking on Use Tax Court Method, if I leave the page and come back to it, the Use the IRS Method is clicked.  It's like the program doesn't accept my click on the Use the Tax Court Method button.  Last year I could click on each button to see how they affected my total refund amount.  I can't do that this year.  Trying to figure out why... and how to enable it?

Exit the program, clear cache and cookies, restart your computer and try again. I have successfully done it in the program.

Thanks.  I've done that several times this afternoon but it still won't let me switch to "Use the Tax Court Method."  What else can I try?

I have the same problem as the original poster.  Does anybody know how he/she got it work?  Perhaps the tax expert has new suggestions.  Thanks.
