Turbo Tax QCD bug

I am starting to enter my information for my 2021 taxes on Turbotax. My DH turned 70.5 in 2021 and did some charitable gifts from his IRA (QCDs). Turbo tax is not letting me enter that the distributions from DH's IRA were QCDs. I did some research and found that there is a known bug in the TT system (it was there last year too) that only allows QCDs if you are age 72 or older. The suggested "work around" is to temporarily change you age on TT to be 72 or older. I did this and then was able to show the QCDs and this fixed the problem. I then went back and a changed DH's age back to his correct age.

Anybody else runs into this problem? It will only come up if you do QCDs from age 70.5 to age 72 so probably not the many people are affected.
