Enter Mortgage Interest and Property Tax for your Rental Property in the Rental section first, in the Income  section. 

 

Mortgage Interest for your home (or for any Personal Use of the Rental Property if not rented all year), will be entered in the Deductions & Credits section later.

 

You may want to delete any 1098's you entered in Deductions & Credits, then go into Rentals and enter appropriate amounts there first.

Thanks, but that's what I did. I don't have mortgage interest on my home, there's nothing entered except my rental.

Have been informed that Schedule E will not be finalized by the IRS until 1/21/21.  This may be affecting the Mortgage Interest Entry.

 

Here's a link for Federal Tax Form Availability.
