How can I properly reflect my foreign rental income on Sch.E to Form 1116, Foreign Tax Credit?

I have foreign passive income on both Sch.B(passive interest) & Sch.E(passive rental).

 

However, when I reviewed my form 1116, Foreign Tax Credit("FTC"), only foreign interest (Sch.B) was linked to it.

 

Both of Turbo tax specialist and my former accountant confirmed that foreign passive rental income should be linked to Form 1116 for correct calculation.

 

When I entered Sch.E, I definitely set my property as foreign property.

(Address type:foreign address / Property located outside US? Yes, all assets.)

 

Q1. Am I still missng something to connect my foreign income on Sch.E and the income section on Form 1116?

 

Q2. Also where can I put my foreign income tax on my foreign passive rental income(Sch.E) in order to get FTC? (FYI, I put my foreign come tax on my foreign interest income on 1099-INT)

 

Your help would be greatly appreciated!!
