Unemployment Exclusion Not on Form 8582 or Mod AGI Wks

I opened by previously filed tax return and it updated the $10,200 unemployment exclusion from my income correctly.  However, it did not deduct it from my modified AGI on form 8582.  In Mod AGI Wks it shows the full amount of unemployment I received but the line below, "other income" I believe should show the -10,200 and adjust the Mod AGI accordingly but it does not.  The problem is it isn't allowing me to take all of the passive rental property loses I'm entitled to because of the additional income.
