how long did you live in the home?

sorry, I asked the question wrong, but I will assume you lived there at least 24 of the last 60 months of ownership - otherwise that is the issue.

 

suggest going back and check all your inputs, especially the dates......if the dates reflect that you did not live there ANY 24 months of the period of Sept 2015 - August 2020, it's the problem
