Real Estate Taxes Double Counted

I have two home offices, one for myself as a salaried employee and one for my wife who is a small business owner. As directed by the step-by-step instructions, I have entered the real estate taxes for my property under both home offices. In the small business entry for my wife, I have checked the box which says "real estate taxes entered here were already entered on another home office". But for some reason this box doesn't seem to be having any effect and the real estate taxes are still being double counted.

Real Estate Taxes Double Counted

The home office you have entered as an employee is not deductible.  Unreimbursed Employee Expenses are not longer deductible.  So I wonder if it is really being doubled or just all used on her Business Use of Home since it cannot be used for your home office.

Are unreimbursed employee expenses still deductible on state taxes? If so, wouldn't I want to include this home office on my return? Is it best to override this value in forms view?

I just took a look at my Schedule A in forms view and the real estate tax amount is correct and not doubled, so it seems that this is just a display error on the tax summary page on the step-by-step process
